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!

Video: Feeding the Homeless

Author: Leave A Comment

The Relieving the Hunger Global Service Action Campaign is still going strong, and we’re sharing stories of how Lions everywhere are feeding their hungry neighbors. The video above is a Lions Quarterly segment that features Lion Gwen from California. She used to be homeless, but she was able to pick herself up and now feeds the homeless in her community. Gwen serves soup to homeless people every week, and as the weather grows colder, other Lions join her to provide gloves and socks to those in need.

Check out the video to learn more about Gwen’s soup kitchen and the Warm Hands and Feet project.

How is your club participating in Relieving the Hunger this month?
