  12. 12. Sample of responses 14 • “I was attracted to Rotary as they have immense power globally in the multiplication of manpower and finance. However, it seems to me that many in the Rotary act ‘as their own boss’… Their appears to be resistance to change from some members and this may not allow for changes that may need to happen to adopt the next generation of Rotarians—and I think this needs to be a priority.” • “Often small, passionate groups of people band together and charge ahead but the balance of the club could be left behind. The problem is always the passionate few doing the heavy lifting but finding a key to keep all engaged would be beneficial.” • “Our District Leadership team is comprised of the District Board (10), Assistant Governors (13) and District Committees (5) which tend to operate in silos and not together as a collaborative team.”

  18. 18. “...organizations hit walls of resistance (partly of their own creation) which prevent collaborations succeeding. The problem is not with the idea of collaboration, but the way many have attempted to apply it. The solution lies in preparing your own organization for the change.” Jonathan Webb, Forbes “Collaboration is one of the most misused words today. It is thrown out in conversations without regard to what it actually means.” Rod McKay, ICD, HSFC “Collaboration designed and performed well is an opportunity explore interests, involve diverse perspectives, create dreams, innovate, generate collective wisdom and capture possibilities that no one alone could.” David B. Savage
