Join us for our last meeting of the fiscal year and welcome our new and returning board members.

Steve Gray will be our speaker today and will be speaking about Attitude: the Extra Plus in Leading.

Attitude is one of many assets that make great leaders. Leadership has less to do with position than it does with disposition.  The disposition of a leader is important because it will influence the way followers think and feel.  Great leaders understand that the right attitude will set the right climate enabling the right responses from others.  Without a good attitude we will never reach our full leadership potential.  Just as our attitudes are the extra pluses in life, they also make the difference in leading initiatives and others.

About our speaker:

STEVE GRAY managed Central Records for World Vision’s International Global Centre LA offices located in Monrovia, California. His primary responsibility was managing information used for reference, statue, or organizational history purposes.  Steve was a member of the Knowledge Management unit within the Evidence and Learning group.  The Knowledge Management group continues to bring together the people, processes, and technology enabling World Vision to change data into information, information to knowledge, and knowledge into learning and application.    

World Vision is an international Christian humanitarian organization supporting projects in 95 nations. The organization assists the poor in sustainable community-based development focusing especially on the needs of children.

Recently retired after 46 years with World Vision, Steve held a variety of positions with the organization between 1971 and 1988. In the summer of 1988, he became responsible for Central Records.  In 1993 he received the “Outstanding Performance Award” for the office in Monrovia.
