Mission Focus

It’s been said many times that what the leader focuses on gets done.  It’s true in business, in our personal life and in our Toastmasters club. What is it that your club leaders are focused on?

Healthy clubs focus on the Club Mission as defined by Toastmasters International.

“…to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop oral communications and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth”.

Club leadership seeks to create an environment that fosters growth. A place where members are setting and achieving goals, actively participating in club meetings, and committing to help each other grow as communicators and leaders.

Something special happens when clubs become mission focused. Members look forward to meetings. They contribute enthusiastically and are committed to helping each other succeed.

Mission focus will give your club a renewed  purpose. It can energize the membership and make meetings productive and fun. Focus provides the much needed boost that struggling clubs often lack.

If your club suffers from lack of energy, is struggling with low membership or waning member commitment, why not re-focus your members on the Toastmasters Club Mission?

Intentionally focusing your effort on achieving the club mission can turn things around. It takes communication, It takes leadership. Isn’t that what we’re trying to develop as Toastmasters?
