the use of drugs and alcohol Clinton Flume is a representative of the Canyon High School Student When the boy was in the fifth grade Medford drug himself into the classroom Medford had big metal crutches with padded loops that he put his arms through forcing him to lean forward into a stooped posture his legs dragging behind him as he walked Each day Medford would struggle up the steps and laboriously move to his classroom seat After finishing his assignment the boy would watch as the teacher leaned over Medfords desk helping explaining encouraging As the boys played football or baseball Medford stood on the sidelines leaning forward on his crutches laughing along with the fun others were having cheering for good plays clapping when a team scored Sometimes the boy would visit Medfords home sit on his front porch and talk with him Medford never had much to say Nonetheless the boy developed a deep admiration for Medford who wrestled with the routines of life but never complained smiled most of the time and seemed surrounded by peace Medford stood apart He couldnt think or play like the other boys His classmates ignored him and never spoke to him or about him He was alone except for the boy and the teacher The next year Medford was gone No one knew where No one cared The boy decided to become a doctor He would help people like Medford He entered college with a passion to get his medical degree His high school classmates laughed at him because they knew he was a poor science student The young man struggled The other students were much smarter Calculus physics and organic chemistry seemed beyond his capabilities He felt almost like Medford The young man sat on his bunk bed looking down elbows resting on his knees arms crossed at the wrists Should he quit Or go on He wanted to help people He knew that What about being a preacher Or a coach A social worker maybe No None of these would do Doctors made more money As a boy he had been very poor Often the family would have bread and gravy at supper Two pairs of blue jeans given to him by his grandmother on his birthday were John I Walker Guest Columnist torn and ragged by the next year He remembered his mother crying when bill collectors pounded on their door demanding money she didnt have He would be a doctor He would be secure He would take care of his family He would help others Many many years ago in another state this young doctor was my best friend As we developed a trusting relationship his prime motives became apparent financial security first helping others second This story is told to help leaders understand that motivators are more complex than they seem Theres more than what others tell us when we initially get to know them A great leader finds out what those underlying motives are and helps others get what they want TRICOUflTYCIIRKT COMMERCIAL OR RESIDENTIAL or as low as pad Wood Flooring NO furniture charge Berber Carpet installed pad FREE ESTIMATES 8406

peoples interests They trade minds with the people they want to influence They consider the other persons situation They ask themselves If 1 were in his situation what would I want Is there more to what Im being told They ask questions numerous questions to know all about those they lead To lead ask dont tell General Robert E Lee was revered by his men because he knew them and felt compassion for them His knowledge of his men allowed him to maximize their talents He assigned his leaders tasks that fit their personalities and their strengths Leaders use the strengths of others by knowing
