Wendy Davis, who recently returned from a Friendship Exchange trip to Pakistan, welcomed three visiting Pakistani Rotarians who are now here visiting Clubs in District 6440. Shown at left are Drs. Sohail Qureshi, Arjumand Sohail, and Aamer Sohail. Drs. Sohail Qureshi and his wife, Dr. Arjumand are members of Rotary Club Sahiwal 101. Their son, Aamer is a recent medical school graduate and Rotaracter. They provided us with a brief virtual tour and overview of Pakistan- just enough to tempt visitors, as well as some background on their club. Their service projects have focused flood relief, adult literacy, empowerment of women, and healthcare education and screening.

|How many of the managers in your career would you want to work for again? That is the question posed by Jeffrey Anderson, president of the Lake Forest Graduate School of Management. Based on several studies, the average response is only somewhere between 30-50%, representing an astoundingly high rate of "failure." While self awareness can help to avoid some of the pitfalls that lead to a failing or plateauing career path, accurate awareness is hard. The deficiency that causes the problem in the first place makes it difficult, if not impossible to recognize the deficiency. There are, however, identified causes of derailment.|
