An underlying theme at American Fidelity is continuous improvement. Whether through our Lean initiative or through a multitude of training opportunities, AFA encourages Colleagues to learn and grow in their careers.  Like many Americans, one of my biggest fears is speaking in front of people. Thankfully, I found a safe place to practice this skill in AFA’s Toastmasters group. Toastmasters is an internationally recognized organization that provides public speaking and leadership training. Now, over lunch once a week, I learn about and practice skills such as meeting management, impromptu speaking and presenting, and receive instant feedback from my Colleagues. As an added benefit, AFA pays my club dues if I attend 50 percent of the meetings.

In what types of professional training do you like to participate? &
