Mentoring New Toastmasters - A How To Guide
A great resource for every club. Mentoring and Coaching “is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximize their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.” Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring.
Mentoring can be a very positive experience for the Mentee, the Mentor, and the Toastmasters Club. When effectively implemented new members gain the support they need to understand the culture of the Toastmasters Club they have just joined and to set realistic, achievable goals aligned with the reasons/ purpose they had when joining the club and ultimately to reach these goals.
When a Mentoring Program is implemented in an effective manner, new members are likely to feel welcome, be more engaged in the club, become active earlier and stay with the club for longer periods of time. This in turn contributes to a healthier club with more engaged members and lower turnover. Click on the image to view and download.
