Tip of the Week: Armchair Evaluations

That perforated sheet of paper we get every week isn’t just for voting for Best Speaker and such! One of the great things about Toastmasters is the instant feedback, because we can improve as speakers only when we learn what our strengths and our weaknesses are!  I encourage everyone to use the sheets to write a little note of encouragement to the prepared speaker and/or Toastmaster after their speeches.  Let the speaker know what they did right and should continue doing, and/or let them know one thing that they should work on for next time. You can hand the little slip of paper to the speaker after the meeting…we also are talking about getting tiny little buckets to pass around for the Armchair Evaluations!
