Becoming a Chair
The Best Leaders Need the Best Mentors
You have been there and done that. As part of a select group of bold individuals who have achieved credibility through first-hand experience, you are able to champion the growth of leaders. Being a TEC Chair is an opportunity to give back while continuing to earn a comfortable living.
Your unique perspective will add to the TEC experience. By leveraging your business accomplishments and commitment to strong principles, you will be able to help your group(s) achieve more.
Do What You Love and Get Paid
You have experience that places you in an enviable position to help business leaders in your community face challenges you’ve already mastered. As a respected community business leader with a proven track record, you are ready to advise, lead and help others build successful, impactful businesses.
Launching a TEC Canada Chair Practice will provide you with both meaningful and financially rewarding work. Most of our Chairs oversee more than one group and do this full-time.
The Art of Chairing
Chairing is a combination of listening and coaching, and a blend of pushing and waiting. You’ll help drive business development, network to find prospects and connect members to the right people to aid their success. It’s your job to cultivate the best group dynamic and foster group connection that drives impact for its members.
As a Chair you will:
- Facilitate group meetings and hold members accountable.
- Mentor and guide members to achieve their goals.
- Help members create action plans to tackle issues.
- Meet one-to-one with members to identify leadership challenges and opportunities.
- Select relevant speakers from TEC’s exclusive database to maximize the impact for your group(s).
TEC Chairs motivate the motivators. Using our proven methods you will learn to ask the right questions, raise your emotional quotient and hone your ability to challenge and inspire your group members.
We’ll also help you to continually invest in your skills. Quarterly Chair development training, seminars, industry events, Chair mentoring programs and our global chair conference are just the start.
