Toastmasters DCP Progress Planner Tool

By | Leadership | No Comments

Toastmasters International is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering people by providing opportunities for their members to develop communication and leadership skills.

This Google Spreadsheet tool was created for Club Leaders and Area Directors to track their progress of completing their defined DCP (Distinguished Club Program) goals in order to achieve the respective awards and recognition.

Benefits of the Toastmaster DCP Progress Planner Tool:

  • It’s easy to use and keep up to date
  • It’s in the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere by multiple devices
  • It can monitor your club’s and member’s progress towards success

In Toastmasters, clubs are encouraged to achieve a certain level of goals each fiscal year. These goals are aimed to keep the clubs healthy and successful which ultimately benefits the members. Clubs need to achieve at least five goals to be recognized as Distinguished, seven to be recognized as Select Distinguished and nine to be recognized as President’s Distinguished.

Toastmasters International does provide reports online for clubs to track their progress towards completing their goals. The challenge is, there is not an easy way to track and monitor the percentage of the progress of the goals that have not already been completed.

Example: A goal for a club may be for a member to achieve an Advanced Communicator Award. The online reporting will show when the goal is completed but will not show the progress towards completing the goal or when it is expected to be completed.

The DCP Planner Tool provides two Tabs & Functions that can help Strategically Plan Goals and Track Their Completion.

  1. The Club Planner Tab – This outlines each DCP goal and lets the user fill in details on who will complete the goal and when it is expected to be completed.
  2. The Member Planner Tab – This can be filled out with the club members and track the progress of where each member is in their progress of achieving certain goals so that progress can be monitored and leveraged for strategic planning.

Area Directors can provide the DCP Planner Tool to their club’s club officers to empower their club officers and so that they have a way to track the progression of completion of DCP goals.

Club Officers can use the DCP Planner Tool to strategically plan out their DCP goals and monitor their club’s overall progress. The club officers may also choose to share the Member Tracker Tool with their club members to help their members plan and track progress on their individual goals.

Toastmasters Progress Tracker Tool

The Back Story Why I created the Tracker:

I joined Toastmasters in 2010 and completed the Competent Communicator track within my first year of being a member. At the time I was doing approximately one speech per month. In 2011 I became a father and took a hiatus from the program. While I had anticipated only being gone for a few months, I was gone for four years. I rejoined the program in 2015 and committed to complete both tracks and earn the Distinguished Toastmaster Award. However in the new club I joined, there was only an opportunity to speak in rotation every two to three months. At that rate it would have taken several years to complete the program. Since I already was out of the program for several years I wanted to accelerate my progress not stretch it out. This lead me to create the Progress Tracker Tool so I could plot out my path for success. In order for me to accelerate my goal I needed to give a few speeches a month by visiting other clubs. The tool helped me plan out a realistic plan to achieve my goal and I was able to complete both tracks in a little over a year. Having it in an electronic spreadsheet in the cloud let me easily access my progress from anywhere and make edits as needed. I hope this tool helps to empower others looking to strategically make progress in the Toastmaster program.
