…and leadership, too

During Toastmasters club meetings we’re typically focused on the speeches. That’s appropriate! “Communication skills” is one of the twin goals — as stated in the Toastmasters Club Mission Statement:

We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

But we’re also an environment in which you can discover and hone your leadership skills. You can apply some of these skills by serving your fellow members in meeting roles like Ah-Grammarian, Timer, Evaluator, and Toastmaster.

Your Competent Leadership manual can help you here. Any of your fellow members would be happy to evaluate your meeting role — providing helpful feedback devised to explore an aspect of leadership as it applies to that role. (This also moves  you closer to your CL award.)

Be sure  you get full benefit from your meeting service. Bring your Competent Leadership manual to every meeting!
