Leadership is a Choice

Not my words. I heard them through Simon Sinek

He explains that leadership can come from anyone at any time, regardless of rank or authority bestowed upon them. And their key job is to make people feel safe. 

In the context of what we do in Toastmasters, this means that each and every one of us members have a choice to lead. 

We can choose to make a guest feel welcome when those who are designated with that responsibility are not available. 

We can recognize an opportunity to improve the club experience and take the initiative while asking for help if needed. 

We can put the effort into reading the materials and thinking critically about how to set an example for others. 

Or we can follow. It’s up to you.
