As a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) and Division E Governor I have been reflecting on my leadership philosophy.
After a Toastmasters meeting last night, Helen told me, “I like and support you because Kristi you care!”
What Helen didn’t realize was the acronym C.A.R.E.S encapulates my leadership philosophy.
C Confidence and Contributions
A leader has confidence in their own beliefs and values contributions of others in smaller projects to help the team achieve greater goals.
A Ask and Analyze
A leader asks the member or client what their needs are what their club’s needs and analyzes what their needs are.
R Respect and Retention
A leader respects the members’ needs to retain their support.
E Energizes and Excites
A leader energizes and excites members to take action.
S Serves and Strives
A leader serves the members and strives to meet their needs.
C.A.R.E.S. embraces members’ needs to achieve greater goals!
