Many thanks to Darla Atwood-Donovan (WLC 5/99) for organizing and clearly
articulating our coaching tip from Rayona.
It is a great honor, which acknowledges the tireless work she did fighting for equal rights for her daughter, Kate, who was born with severe cerebral palsy. During the 16 years of Kate's life, Anne, her husband and their two other children, worked endlessly to give people with disabilities in Australia new hope and equal opportunity to live quality lives.
She continues that work today as a community leader extraordinaire in addition to her duties as director of both The Teleran Group and Anne Skipper Associates. Anne also sits on several company boards.
Our thanks and congratulations to Anne for the huge difference that she is making as a leader in Australia. If interested, you can reach Anne via our web site link or directly at: http://www.teleran.com.au/
Anne, like all of you, is a hero in our eyes. Thank you for all the volunteerism and community service that you are contributing to make this world better for everyone.
A final thought regarding the challenges of leading change:
' ... it ought to be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new.'
-- Nicolo Machiavelli, "The Prince," 1515
