I get this email fairly often;
‘I have been reading what you have to say about the patrol method and youth leadership buy MY Scouts don’t seem to get it. We’ve done youth leader training and even sent them to NYLT but they just don’t lead.
What are we doing wrong?’
It’s not that you’re doing something wrong – its just that you may have misunderstood the difference between training and experience.
Growing leaders starts with training but it only starts there.
Experience is what makes a leader.
Experience comes from
|Repetition||Acheivement||Baptism of fire|
The finest training in the world can only mimic the actual process of experience.
