Club Growth Director – Dawn Frail, DTM

“If your actions inspire others to DREAM more, LEARN more, DO more and BECOME more, you are a leader.”
– John Quincy Adams

Committee Member? Consider it for an HPL Project

High Performance Leadership features five projects offering instruction and practice in such vital leadership areas as developing a vision, goal-setting and planning, developing plans and strategies, and team-building. It also gives you feedback on your leadership skills. The program may be completed within your Toastmasters club, area or district, and even within your company or community.

The High Performance Leadership (HPL) project is a criterion for the Advanced Leader Silver (ALS) award. In Pathways Level 5 projects, the HPL project is a criterion for 3 pathways: (1) Effective Coaching, (2) Innovative Planning and (3) Persuasive Influence and an elective to the rest of Pathways Level 5 projects (7 Pathways).

What opportunities exist at the District level to complete an HPL project? As Club Growth Director, there are several committees that need your help and could be excellent candidates for HPL assignments. Some possibilities are:

  • Club Extension Committee: generating, managing and tracking leads in all Divisions
  • Club Sponsor Committee: recruiting, training and tracking new club Sponsors for clubs in the midst of the chartering process
  • Club Mentor Committee: recruiting, training and tracking new club Mentors for newly chartered clubs
  • Club Coach Committee: recruiting and training club Coaches to help them develop action plans to aid their assigned clubs

Are you interested in taking on a critical role that helps in the success of your District? Let me know you’re interested and we can have a conversation about best fit for your particular skillset, interests and goals.
