Develop your leadership skills
Most of us aren't born leaders.
But sometimes we find ourselves in our communities, or at work, or at home, being thrust into the role of leading, sometimes whether we like it or not.
Leaders are are all around us though. In the community, at work, at school, in sport. Leaders are everywhere.
They are the heads of families, coaches of teams, business leaders, mentors, and organizational decision-makers. They influence who we are and what we become.
Are you one of these? You may not have set out to become a leader, but through the process of being a Remuera Toastmasters member you'll develop leadership skills. Evaluating a speech is a leadership skill. Organising and chairing a meeting is another.
There is also the option to choose to extend your leadership capabilities by becoming a club committee member, by being elected a club president, and by selecting a leadership programme when it comes time to beging working with Toastmasters Advanced speech manual.
Members interested in building their leadership skills begin with Competent Leadership manual.
This is the core of the Leadership track. The Competent Leadership manual features 10 projects that you complete while serving in various club meeting roles. An evaluator will give you feedback on each project, helping you to improve. When you complete the manual, you are eligible for the Competent Leader award.
Advanced Leader Program
After earning the Competent Leadership award, you can further refine and develop more complex leadership skills by completing projects in manuals that are part of the Advanced Leader Program.
