CL Project 7: Developing Your Facilitation Skills

The seventh project in the Competent Leadership manual is: Developing Your Facilitation Skills.

The purpose of this project is to practice becoming a better facilitator; helping groups of people work better together.  This is obviously an important skill for a leader to master

In order to complete this project, you must perform two out of the following four tasks at separate meetings: Toastmaster, General Evaluator, Table Topics Master and Befriend a Guest at a Club Meeting.

To complete this project, I served as General Evaluator and Table Topics Master.

As General Evaluator, I worked with the evaluation team which consisted of the speech evaluators, the timer and the grammarian.  I ensured that they all understood the responsibilities of their respective meeting roles and had everything they needed to perform them successfully.

As Table Topics Master, I made sure everyone understood the purpose and format of Table Topics and took volunteers to answer the question: “If you could go back in time and talk to yourself at the age of ten, what advice would you give yourself?”

Completing this project brought me one step closer to becoming an effective leader.
