Telling has limited usefulness in developing youth leadership …
… asking is what really gets things moving along. This week I’ll explain how to ask questions in exchange for offering advice or telling Scouts how to do things. This is a powerful tool to get them doing the kind of thinking that fosters leadership development.
If you are looking for problems you’ll see problems, if you are looking for development you’ll see development, if you are just looking you’ll see both.
Every so often the light comes on; it’s an actual physical phenomenon! Your youth leadership has accomplished more than just learning the right answer; they have learned to teach themselves.
