Good afternoon. I need some help in the scout world of leaders. We have 6 leaders in our troop, and one of the leaders is very hard to get along with. Gonna make it plain and simple and say what he is like. He yells all the time, blames other adult leaders of stealing while receipts are given in for reembursements, thinks hes the boss when he is only the assistant scoutmaster, sits during meetings and drinks coffee all the time, doesnt know knots and other needed things to teach the kids, always goes over everyones heads to correct them, fights with other adult leaders, and so on. Its hard to say all but hes a problem to the troop. What can i do to resolve this as a committee chairman of the troop. Do I go to the district people of BSA? i NEED SOME HELP TO RESOLVE AN ONGOING ISSUE. Thanks all...
In the recent "adult-lead troop" and other topics there's a discussion about ASMs who can't take step back from the youth management of activities. And their was a little debate about if this behavior is more likely among former scouts since their entire career had been fully engaged with the youth and now a switch needs to be flipped. Well, maybe that's why we need to move some boys into a JASM position. Maybe if they spend that last year "stepping back" and helping to do some adult tasks: possibly advising a few Eagle projects, helping the treasurer balance the books, maybe even a little promoting scouting at the district level. Maybe they'll be better prepared to serve as ASM.
