THE PURPOSE OF LEADERSHIP
Effective leaders empower others to accomplish personal goals and contribute to the successful completion of group objectives. Leaders are in a position to model behaviors for others to emulate. They provide guidance and feedback throughout the course of assigned projects and often help others improve their skills.
In Toastmasters you will find a project to
UNDERSTANDING YOUR LEADERSHIP STYLE
to identify your primary leadership style or styles.
Understanding your personal strengths and preferences can help you adjust your leadership style to be effective in varied environments with different individuals and teams. This flexibility makes leading others and achieving desired outcomes possible, regardless of the situation.
“Whatever your grade or position, if you know how and when to speak, and when to remain silent, your chances of real success are proportionately increased.” (Dr. Ralph C. Smedley)
