Here are the three keys to success in any environment:
- Speaking skills
- Leadership skills
- Service to others
The best way to become better with each of these keys is to participate in a Toastmasters club. Here's why:
New Toastmasters receive the Competent Communicator manual. It contains ten speaking projects. You'll develop your speaking skills one step at a time.
After you complete your Competent Communicator manual, you will receive the Competent Communicator award. To further develop your speaking skills in an area that interests you, you can choose from a wide assortment of Advanced Speaking manuals. As you complete them, you will receive advanced speaking awards.
As a new member, you'll also receive the Competent Leadership manual. It describes and records your leadership activities as you assume various roles during Toastmaster meetings.
After your complete the projects in your Competent Leadership manual, you'll receive the Competent Leader award. You can choose from a wide variety of leadership projects that will earn advanced leadership awards.
Service to Others
A Toastmasters club works because its members participate. They help each other and the community. You will grow professionally because of the help you receive, and the help you offer.
Visit a Toastmasters club near your home or workplace. Feel the warm welcome you'll receive. Watch the speakers, the evaluators and leadership roles filled by willing members.
It's not about being perfect. It's about helping each other grow.
Do your part to make the world a better place, while improving your skill set. Check out Toastmasters today.
