Video: 9 Steps to Successfully Coaching a Toastmasters Club

Club Coaching can be incredibly rewarding or terribly frustrating.  It all depends on your attitude and the club officer attitudes.  If you have officer support, then you are on your way to successfully coaching a club to achieving Distinguished status or higher in the Distinguished Club Program.  

In this speech I mention some Toastmaster International resources you can use to successfully coach a club.  It would be helpful if before your initial meeting with the officers you download the “Club Coach Troubleshooting Guide” .   Consider having a meeting with the club officers and let them complete the short survey.  This puts everyone on the same page.

Be sure you understand the Distinguished Club program and review the “Club Coach FAQ“.  I especially like the detail of a club coach’s responsibilities.

Most importantly, have fun coaching your club and ask questions of other coaches.  Enjoy building a brand that brings distinction to your club.
