The purpose of the High Performance Leadership (HPL) is to apply your leadership and planning knowledge to develop a project plan, organize a guidance committee, lead others, and implement your plan with the help of a team. The HPL project can be any project chosen by the leader.
The HPL/DTM Chair trains and serves as a resource for Toastmasters seeking to complete a HPL Project or in developing the Pathways DTM project. The HPL project is required for: Effective Coaching, Innovative Planning, Persuasive Influence, Motivational Strategies and as an elective for other Level 5 projects. The DTM project is required for all Pathways and utilizes the HPL format to organize the project.
Your 2019-2020 HPL/DTM Chair is Sue Delap, DTM who received her DTM in 2012. As a Toastmaster Sue has served in all club offices, as an area governor and director and division director, Fall conference chair, and coach/mentor chair. Sue used her HPL experience to organize a state women’s weekend retreat and Toastmaster speech contests. Her focus in Toastmasters has been to use her skills in communication and leadership in her school counseling career in Tucson, Seoul, Korea and Abu Dhabi, UAE. Sue hopes that her experience can assist Toastmasters in creating an HPL and DTM that utilizes these Toastmaster projects in their professional and personal lives.
