My Toastmasters club, Garden City Toastmasters, is celebrating their 60th anniversary this year.
Fellow member Charlotte King is organizing a 60th Anniversary Celebration event as her High Performance Leadership project.
What is a High Performance Leadership project? I didn’t know, but I liked the sound of it, so I decided to look it up and find out. I learned that completing a High Performance Leadership project is one of the requirements for acquiring an Advanced Leader Silver (ALS) designation which itself is one of the milestones along the journey to becoming a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM).
A High Performance Leadership Project is a worthwhile project that is completed by working with other people in a leadership capacity, either formal or informal. There are five parts to the program and the participant works with a guidance committee who provide helpful feedback and suggestions for improvement. By working through the five parts the participant learns about leadership, forms a vision, mission and core values, enrolls others into the vision, works the plan to accomplish the mission, reviews and presents the results.
After listening to several podcasts at manvsdebt.com I’ve selected Joints In Motion 2.0 as my big hairy audacious goal. After hearing Charlotte King give one of her HPL presentations I am inspired and am making it my High Performance Leadership Project.
High Performance Leadership – instead of making it a project why not make it a lifestyle?
