CL Project 8: Motivating People

Project 8 in the Competent Leadership manual is: Motivating People.

The purpose of this project is to use the tasks involved to practice motivational skills.

The importance of motivation skills to leadership cannot be overstated.  If you’re not motivating, you’re not leading.

To complete this project, you need to act as Chairman of a Club Membership Campaign or a Club Public Relations Campaign and perform two of the following roles in separate meetings: Toastmaster, Speech Evaluator or General Evaluator.

For this project, I ran our club’s committee for the Talk Up Toastmasters contest last year.

For the meeting roles, I served as Speech Evaluator and General Evaluator.  For the goal of motivation, I focused on positive feedback with an emphasis on how much better the speaker and club is getting and will become in the future.
