How is LDP different from the Toastmasters Leadership Track?
The Toastmasters Leadership Track slowly builds from Competent Leader to Advanced Leader Bronze and then to Advanced Leader Silver (ALS), where only at the ALS-level, as a district officer, an individual gets to truly experience the different dynamics of leadership. LDP is focused to help individuals develop traits such as Accountability, Decision Making, Teamwork, Negotiation, Knowledge, Attitude, & Problem Solving. These skills are tested during a Toastmasters journey as a Club leader, and more importantly as a District leader.
How does LDP work?
LDP will have training sessions through the months of September'15 and February'16, followed by a final session cum graduation ceremony in the month of March'16. In the training sessions, the participants will be trained for assignments that will expose them to deal and practice their learning in real time with issues or challenges at Club, Area, Division, and District-levels.
Note: LDP will not interfere with any of the current responsibilities that leaders at various levels are trusted upon with. LDP assignments are meticulously designed for participants to learn about the skills without causing any interruption to current District activities, at the same time aiding the participants to groom as future leaders across all levels.
