TOASTMASTER advertized in my workplace. Is it an LGAT ?

Unless things have changed recently, Toastmasters is a legitimate program with no hidden agenda and a good choice to learn the types of skills the LGATs like Landmark pretend to offer. Dale Carnegie courses would also be in this category. Neither asks or encourages you to to recruit friends and family, take more and increasingly expensive courses, do "volunteer" work, and neither uses deceptive and/or suspect indoctrination, quasi-religious "concepts," or covert hypnosis, to my knowledge. LGATs typically do all of these things.
