  • HOW TO BEGIN: Begin the session by reading the quote and moving into your own personal story or metaphor that explains the purpose of the session, these being: review our original goals / expectations when we started the year See how we are progressing, and determine if any corrective actions are required on our part: to ensure that we end the Toastmaster year having achieved the goals we set out with Perhaps you have a story of a camping trip that you needed to re-evaluate part way through (excessive rain) etc Perhaps you have piloted a flight, that required course adjustments Perhaps you have had an experience that didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to and that in hindsight had you have changed a couple of things, it would have been better….. ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR METAPHOR READ OUT THE QUOTE ON THE FOLLOWING SLIDE
  • HOW TO BEGIN: Begin the session by reading the quote John Maxwell wrote, “A leader is one who know the way, goes the way and shows the way”. Then move into your own personal story or metaphor that explains the purpose of the session, these being: The purpose of this session is to review our goals and objectives and to look at the decisions we have made in the past 6 months, and determine what actions are required to ensure a successful and productive second half of the toastmasters year. Trainers note: Much of this session can be packaged up in the metaphor of a trip or journey, travelling from point A to B with a course correction along the way. Trainers are encouraged to pick whatever journey metaphor they are most comfortable with. Examples include: hiking, bushwalking, travelling on a ship or boat, flying in a airplane, travelling to the moon. The key points for the metaphor are that we have a start point, an end point, a course correction, and that it is possible to lose your way, or get side-tracked (by a storm, asteroid shower, picnic, etc).
  • Briefly introduce the three focus questions (This is what we will be looking at today): Where am I now? Where am I on my leadership journey? Where do I want to be? What is my destination? Q. How do I get there? What do I need to be, do or have? It is through these questions that we can get the most out of our leadership experience. We will start by looking at the first question: Where am I now? ACTIVITY COMING UP……
  • Where am I now? (10 minutes) Activity: Have learners complete the 5 reflection questions in their workbook. They have one minute for each question.   1. What are my greatest achievements? 2. What are my biggest challenges… and what have I learnt from them? 3. What have I learnt about myself in the last 6 months? 4. Do I feel like a valuable & contributing member of the executive team? 5. What will people say about me at the end of my club officer year?   Trainer Note: Encourage learners to respond in ways that are inner focused. For example rather than saying that 'My biggest challenge is that Billy is a arrogant so-an-so' it is better to say that "I find it challenging to deal with arrogant people". The reason for this is because it is most likely not possible for us to change Billy's behaviour, but we certainly can change our reaction to it. End the activity by having a sampling of people share their answers with the audience. (5 minutes) Trainer Note: The learners can either state their answers to all five questions or lead the group to respond one question at a time. i.e. say two people to tell us their answer to Question 1, then another two people to state their answer to Question 2. etc. Be careful of the time that a session like that can absorb. It will possibly be best go with the first option and have three people read through all their answers. An extra point of learning here is that it is likely that the challenges will be somewhat universal or common to other people. You can say something like "Oh yeah, I'm sure that we can all relate to that issue."
  • Where do I want to be (5 minutes) Explain that the intention is for learners to reflect on their expectations when they took on the roll six months ago and their progress thus far. Ask them to consider if they are on target to fulfil their expectations. Do they still want the same things as they did months ago? Do they want something different? Have them consider their leadership aspirations, their personal growth, their educational achievements, and their leadership skills. ACTIVITY Have the learners complete the question "Where do I want to be" on the top of page 5 of the workbook. Move on to the next slide
  • How do I get there? Lecture: (2 minutes) The final question for this review is, "How do I get there?" Learners should consider their final destination (Where they want to be) and answer these three questions. - What do I need to Be, Do, and Have to reach my destination? What do I need to be? (What personal attributes does the officer need to work on? e.g. Do they need to be calmer, more assertive, less aggressive, more relaxed, less uptight, more forgiving, more outgoing, etc.) This is basically a function of personality and character, inner emotions, and feelings.   What do I need to do? (What actions does the officer need to undertake? e.g. Plan their time better, get the agenda out on time, follow up with someone, form a committee, ask for help, etc.) This is about action and making things happen.   What do I need to have? (What resources does the officer need to acquire? e.g. Increased training, more information, more assistance, better supplies, greater autonomy, etc). These are the external resources that an officer may need to help them do their job better.   Activity: (8 minutes) Focusing on these three things (be, do and have) ask the learners to complete the section on the bottom of page 5 'How do I get there?'   Finish off by asking for one or two people to share their answers.
  • Questions (1 minute) Take two or three questions from the learners before recapping and concluding this session on a high note.
  • Summary (1 minute) In this session we have: Reviewed our individual progress over the last six months and reflected on the next six months ahead of us by looking at the 3 key questions: - Where am I? - Where do I want to be? - How do I get there? .
  • Where to from here? The greatest growth you can possibly achieve as a club officer, is having a plan and working toward achieving it. You can only do this with constant reflection. When you return to your clubs, continually ask yourself these questions, Where am I now Where do I want to be How do I get there …..and take action Be the leader you are destined to be.....
