These leadership questions were part of our annual leadership challenge event this past weekend. Scouts were asked to evaluate their leadership skills at the beginning and the end of the weekend by rating themselves on how well the understood and applied these concepts. These evaluations were done for the Scouts themselves, we did not collect them or read them; they did have a chance to discuss these leadership questions and where they thought they improved over the weekend.
This Leadership Self-Evaluation (PDF File) includes the leadership questions and a rating chart. You can use these leadership questions as a tool for opening a discussion with your Scouts or fellow adult volunteers.
