The following is found on page 13 of the August 2006 Ensign:
President Boyd K. Packer . . . has described an experience he had during a leadership training meeting in which a bishop indicated he couldn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t get anyone to serve as the ward Primary president. The frustrated bishop said he had talked to nine different sisters in the ward, and not one of them had agreed to accept the call.
President Packer told the bishop he knew why none of the sisters had agreed to serve: ?¢‚Ç¨?ìYou asked them?¢‚Ç¨‚Äùyou didn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t call them.?¢‚Ç¨¬ù President Packer said that if the call had been extended properly, it would not have taken nine attempts to get someone to accept the call.
Out of curiosity, if you were in that bishop’s place, how useful would you have found this advice?
