Evaluation for Pathways Project 1: Dynamic Leadership: Starting at Ground Zero

I did my very first Pathways Project on 15th Sept. Here is the feedback from the evaluator. I took a two months break from Toastmasters and just got back on my feet. Hopefully, I will not forget whatever I have learnt. I still have a lot to master! Trying my best not to move around too much, giving eye contact and maintaining confidence. I also realized that I don’t perform well when I have a stressful week and suffered from lack of sleep. Got to bear those in mind!

General Comments:

  • Showing vulnerability.
  • Every speech you deliver is authentic and from the heart.

You may want to work on:

  • Greater eye contact and your physical movements.
  • There was some pacing around – try to remain in a certain area especially when emphasizing serious/ sad points

To challenge yourself:

  • Be more assertive and share confidently.
  • The lessons you learnt when you lost your job is a moment of opportunity to grow personally.
  • Embrace the chance to start at ground zero
