SHOUT OUT BOARD By Frances Southon, Moruya Toastmasters The Shout out Board at my school is a board on the wall where you can come along and take a Stick it Note and write up a note for a fellow worker teacher at the school, acknowledging something they do that helps you in some way. It might be that they are always there for you when your computer crashes or you need technical help.It might be that they always give you a warm smile when you arrive in the morning. It might be that you see them doing a phenomenal job with the disabled kids in the support class. It's just a way of acknowledging the good things that colleagues do and how they make our lives better and easier. Maybe this could be used for a club newsletter or facebook?

An interview with Manoj Vasudevan

US neuroscientist Dr Andrew Newberg and communications expert Mark Waldman recently wrote a book “Words Can Change Your Brain.” In it, they write, “a single word has the power to influence the expression of genes that regulate physical & emotional stress.” Turns out their recommendations (gentle eye contact, kind facial expression, warm voice tone, expressive gestures, relaxed disposition, slower speech rate, brevity and the words themselves) is what Toastmasters has encouraged for 90 years!
