A cold March weekend saw Patrol Leaders, Assistant Patrol Leaders and Senior Patrol Leaders, together with the adult leadership team, come together for a weekend camp of a different style – all focused around leadership skills.
Like all good camps, the weekend was started kicked off by a full-english breakfast cooked by the leaders (we’re sure to was to demonstrate good leadership!)
After a hearty breakfast it was straight into what the role of a Patrol Leader is within the section and how they can use some great leadership techniques to help keep their patrol on the right track to having a great experience in Scouting.
They also identified each of the key styles of leadership and which leader generally used which leadership style. They got them all right, can you guess them correctly too?
The Patrol Leaders also learned that different circumstances called for them to change their leadership style in order to get the best out of their patrol.
