Members working in the leadership track learn and practice leadership skills by serving in club roles.
The Competent Leadership Manual
This is the core of the leadership track. It features 10 projects, which you complete while serving in various club meeting roles. An evaluator will give you feedback on each project, helping you to improve. Projects include practicing your listening, giving feedback, time management, organisation and mentoring skills to be a better leader. When you complete the manual, you are eligible for Competent Leader recognition. Complete the CL application in the manual and ask your vice president education to submit it online to World Headquarters. You’ll receive a CL certificate and, if you wish, World Headquarters will send your employer a letter about your accomplishment.
The Advanced Leader Program
After earning the CL award you can further refine and develop your leadership skills by working in the advanced leader program. Members working in this program are eligible for Advanced Leader Bronze (ALB) and Advanced Leader Silver (ALS) recognition.
The award Distinguished Toastmaster, DTM is the ultimate and final conclusion of the Toastmasters educational programs. After earning the highest communication and leadership awards from each track, complete the DTM application and ask your vice president education to submit it online to World Headquarters. You’ll receive a DTM plaque and be acknowledged for the tremendous effort you have invested in yourself.
