  • Who Is Overworked?

    So which council staff positions usually wind up overworking the people who hold them?

    Which ones aren't especially burdensome?

    Professional or volunteer?

    I currently hold the positions of Lodge Adviser and Vice President of Program. There are days that I spend 4-5 hours on Scouting business. It could be meetings, emails, dealing with patch companies, reviewing the latest National revisions to whatever they decide needed a tweak this week, etc. If I didn't work from home, I would be overburdened. Since I work from home, I can manage the commitment. I am fortunate that my associate lodge advisers, camping committee chairman, training chairman and activities chairman are all very capable people.

    Now if I can get the VOA straightened out....

      Overworked verses putting in a bunch of non productive hours?????

        No doubt some DEs are exhausted after a full day of firing District Chairs, attending unit meetings they aren't invited to to make FOS pitches and so on.

            Who Is Overworked?

            Anyone who chooses to let themselves be overworked.

            I know I've been overworked at times. Looking back on it, I can identify how I made it my own choice to do it, or how I failed to delegate items that might have helped relieve it.

            My sense is that the DEs put in a lot of hours. I think that some view it as being overworked.
