Me & My Muse – Day 708: Double Toastmasters Tuesday

On any typical first and third Tuesday, I would have a meeting at Midland Toastmasters: my home club.

But today is a special day, since I will be actually be visiting Hemlock Talk, as one of my pre-term Area Director visits.  My job?  Observe the club and heed the words that I gathered from Marla Woodward (our W Division Director for this year): “Seek to Understand”.  When I have an understanding of Hemlock Talk, I will know how to help them.  With that understanding, I can help them to be a Distinguished Club.  What are their needs?  What are their goals?  As Area Director, it is my job to help them reach their goals, and to address any needs that the club may have.  I am there for them, as I am for all the other clubs in Area 16.


Muse:  So you’re visiting a club today?

Yes.  But today is an observation day, as I would like to see how a typical meeting is run.  When I know this, I can begin to work with the club to help them to achieve their goals.

Muse:  Then you need to get ready.  I will not hold you back.  Hurry.  You have about an hour!

In summary, that’s what I’ll be doing today.  I will visit Hemlock Talk, mow the lawn when I get back and attend Midland Toastmasters later on.  So in total, I will be attending two Toastmasters meetings today, hence the title.

Today’s high is going to be 76 degrees and the silver lining is attending Hemlock Talk today, and Midland Toastmasters later on.

To those of you love coaching groups and leading them to success, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Good luck at Hemlock!  I can remember actually STARTING the Intangible clubs.  Since I was still learning everything myself, it was a challenge.  Let me know how it turns out!
