- Doing a lot of behind-the scenes work to keep people in the group connected and having plenty of opportunities to participate in diverse activities.
- Quietly identifying individual talents and encouraging them and giving them space to show what they can do.
- Stepping back to share credit and let others take the limelight.
- Nurturing the next generation of leaders - our successors.
- Encouraging a friendly, informal workplace atmosphere that volunteers enjoy working in.
"It is a way of living. It is humanity. I believe the only way to live and to be truly successful is by collective effort, with everyone working for each other, everyone helping each other, and everyone having a share of the rewards at the end of the day. That might be asking a lot, but it's the way I see football and the way I see life."
And that is the way I see the South Brisbane Cemetery community, and the way I see life. But it still feels reassuring to have that work acknowledged and to be able to say it is 'award-winning'.
