Subject: Reminder: TM meeting 2/28 (Building Your Thinking Power, Part I - Mental Flexibility)

Fellow Toastmasters,

This is just a reminder that in tomorrow's Toastmaster meeting I will be presenting a Success Communication Series module. It is "Building Your Thinking Power, Part I: Mental Flexibility" - this will take the entire meeting as well as the meeting on March 14. Some info from the materials:

"Building Your Thinking Power" is a program designed to help participants develop their creative thinking abilities. The program is available in two segments: Part I, "Mental Flexibility," and Part II, "The Power of Ideas."

We will discuss the key elements of mental flexibility and practice some specific techniques for developing it. Mental flexibility is one of the hallmarks of the effective thinker. To be mentally flexible means being able to adapt, to appreciate various points of view, to be open to new possibilities, to change your ways when necessary and to be willing to learn and grow continuously.

I hope you will join me at the meeting tomorrow and take part in this interactive module. Feel free to bring a guest or two. The more the merrier!

Best Regards,
