The Rotary Club of Kirkland entered its new year with two sterling motivational programs. Using real world examples, Nick Salmon explained how to dismantle existing beliefs about goal setting and provided a simple, three-step method Rotarians can implement today to start achieving greater success. Then, Ty Reed, who spoke to the Club in early 2020 (just before COVID), returned to address a burning "post-COVID" topic of economic recovery through employee retention. His nonprofit, Recovery Career Services, is dedicated to helping people in recovery find and keep employment, and to providing career coaching and development to assist individuals in rebuilding their professional lives.
