效法新任世界總會長佳娜‧巴恩希爾/Something I learn fromt the New International President Jana Barnhill

 
There were lots of stories and problem-solving strategies in her training. And I remember most clearly the questions she asked us:
“There were two sisters fighting for one apple. Do you know why both of them wanted to have it?"
 
We started to give various reasons. “They both might be hungry.” “They both might want to make apple pies for the family.” “Maybe only one of them really wanted it. The other one noticed that, and got a desire to have it also.”
 
For this, Jana said, “You see how important communication and teamwork are. Only if they talk and listen, would they find a satisfactory way to solve the problem. Maybe each of them can have a half, or one can have the whole apple, because the other one really doesn’t want it.”
 
I learned many effective strategies for building teams, managing conflicts, and establishing communication from the training.
 
Dear leaders, when your team members are talking, make sure you are all ears. When there is conflict, be sure to handle it in a reasonable way. Team work is the key to success.
 
I was also impressed by Jana’s touching and inspiring inaugural speech. In her speech, she mentioned a trip by a small airplane some years ago. Unfortunately the plane crashed. She was not killed, but the fear has haunted her since then.
 
You might not believe that her theme this year is “Toastmasters, the Courage to Conquer.” In order to conquer the fear of taking the airplane, she learned skydiving. In her inaugural speech, she showed a video clip of her jumping from an airplane thousands of meters high, and safely landing on the ground. This helped her regain courage to conquer fear while doing things.
 
Dear members, do you have difficulties in your life? Are you afraid you might not be able to conquer them? Jana said, “Each time you dare to do something, you have courage in yourself; and the courage will enable you to conquer.”
 
May you all have courage to conquer difficulties and have desire to build a colorful life.
 

她在訓練中時時穿插故事及問題探討,深入淺出、引人入勝。而我記得最清楚的是她問我們的一個問題
:
有二位姊妹爭一個蘋果。在座各位有誰知道為什麼她們想要蘋果?”
我們開始回答: 「她們可能餓了。」「她們可能想做蘋果派。」「也許她們當中只有一位真的想要蘋果,另一位感覺到了她的企圖,突然也有了想要蘋果的慾望。」
 
「這時我們就知道溝通和團隊合作有多重要!」Jana 說。「只要他們把事情說開、且聽聽對方的想法,就能發現解決問題的方法。也許他們可以平分這個蘋果;也許透過協調,其中一個可以得到整個蘋果。」
 
這場訓練,我學到很多建立團隊、處理不同意見、以及溝通的有效方法。
 
各位領導先進,當您的團隊成員在陳述意見時,要全神貫注地傾聽。有不同意見時,也一定要以理性的態度來溝通。團隊合作無間是成功的關鍵。
 
Jana 感人及激勵人心的就職演說也令我印象深刻。在她的演說中,她談及幾年前搭乘一架小飛機旅行,不幸飛機撞毀。雖然她無大礙,但飛行的恐懼如影隨形。
 
您可能不敢相信今年她的年度主題是「要有勇氣去克服困難」。為了以身作則,克服心中對高空飛行的恐懼,她學習跳傘。在演講時,她讓我們看一段她搭乘一架小飛機,在數千哩高的天空中,從這一架小飛機上跳下來的錄影短片。觀眾看到她從高空落下、在半空中飄浮、且成功降落時,都熱烈鼓掌,很多人感動到眼眶都紅了,我就是其中之一。Jana 讓我們知道她以這種方式來恢復勇氣、克服困難。
 
親愛的會友們,在您的生活中有遭遇到困難嗎?您害怕您可能無法去克服它們嗎? 世界總會長Jana 說:「每一次您敢嚐試去做,您自己內心就會產生勇氣,而您的勇氣將使您克服困難。」
 
願大家有勇氣克服困難、有慾望營造多彩人生。
