Winter TLI: Toastmasters Leadership Institute

TLI is not just for Club Officers. It’s not even just for Toastmasters. It’s for Leaders.

Whether you are an officer at your club, a manager at work, head of your household, coach of the soccer team or in charge of the Christmas party, you are a leader. We are all leaders. And we all learn at TLIs.

This round of TLIs we grouped the sessions in 4 categories:

  • Club Officer Training: new officers can learn tools to better serve the club members, seasoned officers can share their knowledge, curious members can get an idea of what to expect when it’s their turn on that role.

  • Member Education: Pathways is here. There’s a whole track dedicated to teaching about it: from getting started to becoming a certified mentor to how to get your DTM the new way. And if you want to get your DTM in the traditional system we also got you covered with tips and insight on how to complete it before the 2020 deadline.

  • Club Quality: the club meetings are the heart of the organization. Is your club the best it can be? Here are chances to learn new ideas, and to see how others are addressing things your club may be having challenges with.

  • Beyond Toastmasters: this track is all about toastmasters’ skills applicable in everyday life. Speech evaluator abilities come in handy when doing an employee evaluation at work; goal setting sessions fits perfectly with new year resolutions, team building skills are useful at work, at home, at the book club… you get the idea.

As you can see there’s something for everyone and you’re encouraged to mix and match tracks. And if none of the above convinced you to attend a TLI then how about attending to have fun and meet new people? Whatever your reason is, I hope to see you there.
