Speaker Sherry Knight Challenges Regina Eastview Rotarians and Guests: "Ignore Conflict at Your Peril".

Pat Dell introduced Sherry Knight, who "...has a broad background in helping organizations with their people, performance and profits." Improving performance through coaching, training and facilitating of workshops is a significant component of Sherry's 25 year investment in her clients. Coupled with delivering keynote talks to help individuals explore a variety of ways to improve themselves, their businesses and their relationships. Because functioning as an effective Rotary Club, relationships are key, Sherry’s focus on dealing with conflict has a direct application to what we do as a service club.
It was not a surprise to learn that conflict occurs in all aspects of life - in the family, one's place of work, in team games and even charitable environments like a Rotary Club. Sherry reminded us "conflict " is not to be viewed as squaring off in "fisticuffs" and brawling, but rather in a process of defining "points of view" and addressing difference from a position of "what can I let go , and on what can I compromise.
Guest Speaker Sherry Knight
Often conflicts are the result of inaction when a "problem" was first encountered, and this inaction becomes the routine. Sherry noted the importance of letting the other person know how this "action" makes me feel, e.g. anger, frustrated, sad, bewildered, etc. we were counselled to do some self-examination, in terms of how did I partake in this conflict, and did I let this go on when I should have taken a stand. It is equally important to look at things from a positive perspective and determine how the conflict can be addressed through conversation.
Sherry concluded by reminding us of the importance of being clear, regarding our expectation going forward and getting a commitment that this is an acceptable outcome.
The moral of this story is - "People never leave because of the organization, they leave because of people."
President Jack thanked Sherry for her enlightening presentation and presented our guest with one of this VIP aprons!

This is My Life - Helen Timm
Rotarian Helen Timm shares her
"This is my Life"  Story
Helen Timm reminisced about meeting with Doug Mortin a year ago where membership in Rotary was explored. She was seeking "volunteering opportunities", having retired from her professional career and recently widowed, Rotary was under consideration. A Registered Psychiatric Nurse, her practise was in Saskatchewan, spending some time in the North Battleford facility. She also did extensive traveling to remote parts of the province meeting with clients where she was confronted with the task of building trust with individuals who were challenged by mental health issues. She returned to Regina and obtained a Master’s Degree from the U of R. Spring and summer are great times to be in Regina and the Royal Regina Golf Club is a favorite place. She has appreciated her Rotary experience and likens Rotary to "opening doors". Through Pat Dell and Ann Grahame, she was involved in Club Service and planning the Club's 60th Anniversary, and Community Service and their important projects. Additionally, attending the Rotary International Convention in Hamburg was a great experience.
Thank you Helen Timm for choosing to be part of the RC of Regina Eastview.
