“Distractability, restlesseness, a sense of "gotta go, gotta rush, gotta run around" and impulsive decision-making, because you have so many things to do”. Can you relate to any of that? Most of us probably can, specially as young leaders. This is how Dr. Edward M. Hallowell describes the newly found condition of Attention Deficit Trait.

You'll probably call me a fool but when I applied for a semester abroad on a traveling ship, I already knew I had motion sickness. I have yet to discover whether it was a wise decision, but here are some things my medical visits and discussions with other travelers have enabled me to learn.  I think it is important for leaders to find strategies to overcome motion sickness; there are a lot of things I would have missed on if I couldn't have steped onto a plane, a car or a boat.  So here are a few ideas of what to take along, what can be done and about adjusting to it.

     Traveling to a foreign country is a beautiful experience.  As a young leader, you will most likely be invited to participate at some point in your mandate to an international convention, a district reunion, a study exchange, a study abroad programme or some national leadership programme.  In the thrill of your preparatives, you may also be wondering how life will be like.  Although often discussed as a negative point, I personally find it is part of the charm of traveling - you learn a lot about yourself and others as you look at how they adapt to a new environment.

Make the Knowledge Management System Work for your Organization PDF Print E-mail

     We've seen previously why Knowledge Management Systems are necessary and how they can enhance your club's activities and spirit of community. A Knowledge Management System is any technological tool such as facebook, msn or emails, that your team can use to transfer the knowledge from one executive member to another member, making sure you capitalize on the strengths of your members. One of the few challenges mentionned previously about the implementation of the system was how to know get people to actually use your super system. Especially if your members are not tech-saavy nor students in MIS or Commerce, they might not be very keen on adopting this idea. I've tried serveral time and with some groups it was somewhat desastreous – people refused to use it and accused management for wasting time with useless trainings. At other times, teams have been very grateful for the system put in place for them and have managed to use it to include people in their community and from other countries, building an impressive center of international information exchange.
