Chamber Ad-Lib Orators - Broomfield, Colorado

Chamber Ad-Lib Orators - Broomfield, Colorado "Toastmasters - Where Leaders Are Made" In October 1924, a group of men assembled by Dr. Ralph C. Smedley met in the basement of the YMCA in Santa Ana, California, U.S.A., forming a club “to afford practice and training in the art of public speaking and in presiding over meetings, and to promote sociability and good fellowship among its members.” The group took the name “Toastmasters.” We are a local chapter of Toastmasters International.

Today, Toastmasters International is a non-profit organization which gives its members the opportunity to develop and improve their public speaking abilities through local club meetings, training seminars and speech contests. Toastmasters International includes more than 199,000 men and women in more than 9,300 clubs in more than 70 countries. Experienced professionals and beginning speakers alike

CHANGE was the theme at Toastmasters, this morning. We learned about the four pillars to implementing change inside a professional team, and significant shifts inside an individuals life, as 2020 continues to unfold (humor included)! Table Topics led us to go inside and explore what we would never change about ourselves, and the stubborn traits we struggle changing.

We are still at it, and have not missed a step since Toastmasters, Zoom addition, began several months ago. We are still evaluating, ahs, ums, and unnecessary filler words, along with occasional fun accessories, hats, and virtual backgrounds.

What an incredible club! We cannot wait to meet in-person again soon, to get the heart pounding as together we improve our speaking skills, communication, and leadership.

Toastmasters will help you become a better listener. Come visit us Thursday morning on Zoom at 7:30-8:30 MDT. We'd love to have you as a guest.

“Listening well can help you understand other people’s attitudes and motivations, which is essential in building cooperative and productive relationships, as well as discerning which relationships you’d be better off avoiding.” – Kate Murphy, author of You’re Not Listening: What You’re Missing and Why it Matters.

Check out our July Toastmaster article to learn how to become a better listener.

08/26/2019

When giving speech evaluations:

Approach each speech with honesty while remaining positive
Pay attention to the speaker’s goals for self-improvement
Evaluate what the speaker does and not who the speaker is
Report what you see, hear and feel as a member speaks
Delivering an evaluation is an excellent way to practice and demonstrate your speaking skills. Remember these five points:
1. Before the speech, review the evaluation guidelines for that particular project and approach the speaker to discuss the objectives for their speech. Address any concerns.

2. Personalize your language. Before giving your evaluation, put yourself in the position of the speaker. Use “I” phrases and stay away from phrases like “You didn’t … ,” “You should have … ,” “You failed to ….”

3. To encourage improvement, use words like “I believe …,” “My reaction was …,” “I suggest that….”

4. Evaluate the speech—not the person! Always keep your main purpose in mind: to support, help and encourage the speaker. Don’t assess personal qualities—only assess actions related to the speech.

5. Promote self-esteem. Motivate and inspire the speaker to deliver another speech by giving sincere praise and constructive suggestions on what they can improve. Always end your evaluation with positive feedback.

Toastmasters fits into so many of these categories of building stress resilience for me: a) facing my fears (speaking in public is most people's #1 fear), b) building a social network, and c) inoculating against stress (by regularly challenging my current comfort level). I'm really grateful that I forced myself to go to that first meeting and that the Chamber Ad-lib Orators encourages me on my path!
