Want to inspire your team to take ownership of their own growth and the health of their club? Change Your Colours can help! Click on the video image below to see how it works.

Change Your Colours was a concept dreamed up by 2013-2014 District 21 LGET, Gene Vickers to get teams more engaged in the Distinguished Club Program. It worked but was difficult to maintain the constantly changing spreadsheets. Mike Carr caught Gene’s vision and turned it into a web program that fully integrates with the Toastmasters International Club Status Dashboard.

The Secret to Being a Power Networker Revealed!

on . Posted in Latest D21 News

Power Networking graphicv2 Okay, if you are thinking that is a pretty bold statement to make, I would agree with you.

Any time that you see the words “secret” and “revealed” together in the same sentence, I would advise caution. It is usually followed by a request for payment for the content of the secret to be revealed to you. I am going to reveal the secret to you for free, after all, it was given to me at no charge.

The secret to being a power networker is … [drum roll please] ACTASIF. Say what?

Simply put, to be a power networker i.e. one who is effective in their networking activities, act as if you already are successful. You may find it somewhat anticlimactic to hear this one word secret if you haven’t heard the expression before. Another way of saying it would be “fake it until you make it.” Or with a bit of a stretch it could be “mind over matter.”

“Act as if it were impossible to fail.” — Dorothea Brande
