On Leadership

Recommended Posts

I saw this quote today. It should make a good SM Minute.

 

Most often, the man who becomes leader is not the one that knows the way but the one who behaves as if he does.

So much of the time, it is thought that the SM leads because Scouts and parents lean on that individual for direction. In reality, the SM leans on the parents for their support for the unit and then he/she leans on the Scouts to find out where they want to go and what they want to do. The SM leans on the ASM's for successful completion of delegated responsibilities and leans on the Troop leadership to carry out their plans. The SM leans on the Scouts to follow the Oath and the Law so that everyone will arrive at the same place.

 

So, in a way, a SM's behavior needs to only look like he/she knows.
