Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do as a coach?

  • Build rapport with the club’s leaders and members.
  • Assess the environment—observe, analyze, and recommend solutions. Coaches do not tell the clubs what must be done, but instead offers various suggestions for improvements. The club officers and members need buy-in and must decide what they want to implement. It is still their club.
  • Develop a plan with goals for improvement, implement the plan and ensure those changes are performed by the officers and members as much as possible. Instill enthusiasm, loyalty, and a sense of responsibility for the club’s future.

For more information https://www.toastmasters.org/-/media/files/department-documents/club-documents/218f-first-class-club-coach.ashx?la=en

How long will I be a coach?

The appointment lasts until June 30 2019, which can be extended another year until June 30 2020, if needed. For you to earn club coach credit, the club needs to be a Distinguished with the required membership goal and 5 DCP points by that deadline.

How many Clubs can I coach at a time?

Maximum two clubs.

 Which requirements would I complete by successfully making the club distinguished?

Any member who successfully completes their role as a club coach can apply this credit toward an ALS in the traditional program or a DTM using the Pathways education program.

For a club coach who reaches success on June 30, 2019 or June 30, 2020, their credit can also count as credit for having served in a district leader role. Any club coach roles successfully completed prior to this do not qualify.

  • This double credit does not expire.
  • It may be used now or anytime in the future, including for an award after July 2020.
  • This dual credit for club support (club coach) and district leader can be applied toward two separate awards. As an example, the club support role can be applied to a traditional program ALS (until the traditional education program ends in June 30, 2020) and the district leadership credit applied toward a Pathways DTM.

 

Will I get any Club Coach Incentives?

A coach receives a pin upon assignment and a certificate upon successful completion of the assignment.

Because a club can have two coaches, you can find a friend to be a coach with you. That will make it easier and more fun for both of you.   ExCiTing!

However, the biggest incentive is you getting the experience of successfully coaching a group back to health. This will take you to the next level.

 

Are there any conditions for the coach?

  • Coach must not be a member of the club at the time of appointment but may join after being assigned.
  • You must attend at least 50% of the meetings.

 

Are there any qualifications or conditions for the Club?

At the time of the appointment.

  • Club should not be a suspended or closed
  • Club must have between 1 to 12 paid members
  • A club can have maximum 2 coaches.

 

How will I apply for my award after successfully coaching a club to distinguished status?

  • You do not need to apply or inform. At the end of the toastmaster year (June 30 th), Toastmasters International will check the status of the clubs and if that club has achieved the Distinguish Status, they will mark you as a successful coach and send you a certificate.
