The Leadership Toolkit

This page serves to provide all Michigan Region chapters with various "tools" to attain exemplary success in their leadership, fellowship, scholarship and service skills. The 2012-13 Regional Board has comprised an array of accessible resources for chapters in an effort to make this possible! Below are countless tools that could greatly help your team to become a Five Star Chapter! (For more information on "Five Star Chapter Development," please visit: ptk.org/fivestar). The Regional Board encourages ALL CHAPTERS and MEMBERS to reach five star status!

The "Leadership Toolkit" serves as a guide to help chapters advance in their leadership and teamwork experience. The Regional Board values the importance of essential skills such as effective communication, critical thinking and evaluating accomplishments/mistakes. The Regional Board hopes that you will study these materials, as they can definitely help contribute to your chapter's success!
