You can’t lead with just rules and discipline. You need something else. You need to provide a vision. You need to inspire your team to get there.
What do I mean when I talk about troop culture? Troop culture is the way we see the world. It includes what we do in the troop, what we believe in, and the traditions we create.
There are several styles of leadership, and you may want to use them according to the situation, the skills of the leader, and the skills of the patrol members.
My goal is that you all become great Scouts. I want you to live by the Scout Oath and Law and to know your Scoutcraft. I hope you enjoy the outdoors as much as I do. And, I want you to be good leaders. That is a Scoutmaster’s primary job: to train you as leaders.
