A Principled Path

Toastmasters taught me that we are all friends here to help each other.

Through leadership roles, I realized that leadership is more about influence than about authority. Everyone can have an influence for good in others.

Missing link: I never aspired to be a leader, but assumed the role of leader when there was a void in the leadership of a group. Through the DTM process, I realized the missing elements to my service.

“I am impressed with Toastmasters principles… Toastmasters can benefit anybody and everybody. Maybe not everybody will opt for joining Toastmasters, but I feel all could benefit from association with great people and having the influence of a great set of standards as a basis.”
