Level 2 is the same in all 10 paths in some ways;
– each path Level 2 has 3 projects whichÂ each requires a single 5-7 minute speech.
One project, the 3rd of 3, is in every path
“Introduction to Toastmasters Mentoring” – the assignment involvesÂ presenting a speech about a time the member was a protegee and had a mentor.
For all paths, the other 2 projects include one or both of
“Understanding Your Leadership Style” and Â “Understanding Your Communication Style”
Some paths include both of these “Understanding” projects, other paths include
- “Introduction to Toastmasters Mentoring
- 1 “Understanding” project
- Another required course (e.g. Managing Time, Connect With Your Audience, Active Listening, etc.
2 paths:Â MotivationalÂ StrategiesÂ and Persuasive Influence,Â TeamÂ CollaborationÂ include the project Active Listening, which requires theÂ member to lead a TableTopics session. All other paths include Active ListeningÂ as an optional elective in Level3.
The “Understanding” projects both involve a questionnaire the member answers.
Pathways then presents a scoring of which types of “Style” (Leadership or Communication respectively) the member most uses based on the questionnaire.
In each project, the member is directed to *not* give a speech based on the Pathways training materials, but instead on the subject matter and optionally about their own experiences and understanding.
