By: Toastmasters International District 86
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario - April 1, 2022 - PRLog -- Leadership in challenging times always begins with listening, says Brampton's Jacklyn A. Payne, as she takes on the role of advising district leaders overseeing 570 Toastmasters International clubs across six U.S. states.
"You must build a relationship of trust with people first. If you want to be a good leader, it is important to be a good listener," says the past District 86 Director in southern Ontario, responsible for 135 clubs and more than 2,000 members.
In her new role as Region 6 South Advisor, she supports, guides and teaches Toastmasters district leadership teams in districts 10, 11, 13, 40 and 63, in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland. It's a consulting role, sharing her experience to help districts to achieve the district mission of building new clubs and supporting all clubs in achieving excellence.
The 15-month volunteer assignment begins April 1, 2022.
Payne, an Architectural Technologist, expects her success will hinge on her Toastmasters and professional experience in strategic planning and project management.
"The very first thing I will have to do is understand the culture and be open to learning how to relate to my new districts," Payne says.
"It's all about helping others grow and in the process benefit by learning to be a better communicator and leader. Toastmasters gives you a platform to practice these skills bringing you to the realization that what you put in is what you get out."
Payne remembers the change in her life after she joined Toastmasters in 2006.
Her goal was to sharpen her public speaking skills. It didn't take long for people at the office to notice the positive changes, as she delivered project presentations and staff training.
"I had the confidence to speak with anyone, anywhere, anytime, without hesitation," she says.
Payne's first Toastmasters leadership role was Club Secretary at Brampton Toastmasters She earned District 86 Toastmasters Area Director of the Year in 2012, Division Director of the Year in 2016, and Excellence in Program Quality Award from Toastmasters International in 2019. She has held elected senior district roles, including Club Growth Director (2017-2018), Program Quality Director (2018-2019) and District Director (2019-2020).
Payne's focus has always centred on the growth of individual members, paying forward the support members gave her as she advanced through Toastmasters education programs.
