Palmer’s Blog: Salsa in Columbia

Author: Leave A Comment

I’m very excited to be in Cali, Columbia this week for the FOLAC Forum! But before the FOLAC sessions begin, I was able to visit a poor area of Cali where Lions run a school for deaf students. They are looking to expand into secondary school next year. The students gave several amazing performances, including a salsa dance.

I even learned a few salsa steps myself in preparation of tonight’s show. I think I need more lessons, though — the students at the Lions school were far better, of course!

Looking forward to another great forum, which will include workshops on global campaigns, recruitment of youth and the Reading Action Program.

Webinar: Angry Birds Leadership Lessons

Author: Leave A Comment

There is still time to register for the Leadership Lessons from the Angry Birds webinar on January 15 and January 24, 2014. The video game Angry Birds is a worldwide phenomenon. There is something about the game’s comical birds and mission of eliminating evil egg-stealing pigs that captures the imagination. While it may be a fun pastime for people, a closer look at the elements of the game reveal that fundamental leadership principles can be found within the game’s characters, missions and strategies.

The webinar includes ten leadership lessons from the Angry Birds such as “Make the Most of the Birds,” “The Importance of Leverage” and “There is More than one Way to Succeed.”  Best practices from established leadership experts are integrated and applied to our lives as Lions leaders.  Don’t miss this unique webinar!
