The fruits of success in the future come from the seeds of our present actions. I have believed in succession planning, and MD 111 ( Germany) is an example of sustained and continued growth with the experiment of grooming district governors over a two-year period. Our current district governors need more responsible hands to rely on, and the future governors must have a comprehensive grasp of all issues pertaining to the association and the district. We will now begin a new era where we shall talk of the District Governor Team consisting of the district governor and two vice district governors working together in harmony and with responsibility allocation for sustained growth. Michael Phelps came back from his first Olympic experience in 2000 without a medal; in 2004 (at Athens) his genius was making itself evident and at Beijing, he made history with an unprecedented haul of eight gold medals. Leadership needs to be nurtured to create such glorious records. It matures through inquisitive observation, participative interaction and hands-on experience. Our District Governor Teams will have all the above ingredients to produce leaders with sound value systems and creative skills to be role models in different parts of the world.
