What’s New in Leadership Development? Updates Feb 24 2010 1
VISION ¨ We envision BSA as the provider of the highest quality leadership development courses for our nation’s youth and adult leaders. ¨ Our courses draw from the best of the best leadership programs and material and will use a common lexicon. ¨ ALL youth and adults in all programs will have access to age-appropriate Nationally sanctioned leadership courses.
Team Makeup is Diverse ¨ Main Leadership Development Task Force (LDTF) team drawn from all 4 regions and all program divisions ¨ Each sub team also diverse – NO past development members ¨ Fosters new thinking ACROSS program lines
We will use Common Language ¨ Total alignment of Leadership terms, skills, models and toolboxes ¨ Youth and adult speak the same language ¨ All Programs speak the same language!
Courses Open to ALL – no “silos” ¨ Other than the specifics of “how to do your job” unit leadership training, ALL of our leadership courses will be open to all Programs and will be “program-neutral” ¨ This means Coed ¨ Proper age specific program – 18 year old youth may choose NYLT or Wood Badge (but Wood Badge is probably better)
Progression for Youth ¨ Unit to Council to National level ¨ Progressively adds more detail and models ¨ Experiential component increases Unit Leadership Development = TLT, CLT (program specific: how to do your job) Council Leadership Development = NYLT (for all Programs; coed) National Leadership Development = NAYLE (for all Programs; coed) Kodiak “optional”; suggest after NYLT
Why is Kodiak different? ¨ Kodiak falls between “Unit” and “Council” level Leadership Development ¨ Each “trek” different; no single standard ¨ Experiential course related to Unit Leadership Development Training skill set but better understood after NYLT ¨ Unit Leadership Development Training required. May require NYLT but not for several years
Progression for Adults ¨ Unit Leadership Development – (not under LDTF purview) ¨ Council Leadership Development – Wood Badge – Open to Youth members age 18 and over ¨ National Leadership Development – Philmont Leadership Challenge – Sea Base Leadership Challenge
Unit Leadership Development ¨ Three goals – to understand: – What is the unit leadership structure? – What is my job? (details/job description card) – What leadership skills do I need to do that job? Troop Leadership Training (TLT) Soon to be Crew Leadership Training (CLT)
TLT and “CLT” ¨ TLT has been updated and expanded with more optional activities – need test courses ¨ New Crew Leadership Training will combine the old Crew Officer Orientation and Venturing Leadership Skills Course (VLSC) – need test courses ¨ Both TLT and CLT have the same “backbone” structure and will use the same terms!
Kodiak ¨ Skills and Models aligned with other Leadership courses– uses same basic 7 skills as in TLT and CLT ¨ Open to all programs – age 14 minimum or 13 with completion of 8 th grade ¨ “Trek” need not be high adventure ¨ Better tie between “Leadership skills” and “Trek” written into syllabus
NYLT ¨ Open to all Programs (coed) on optional basis in 2010; all councils coed in 2011 ¨ New syllabus out to 55 users – “program neutral” yet underscores Unit structure ¨ More 2010 courses may try our draft syllabus if they wish – email us at [email protected] com
Coed Logistics ¨ All Youth Protection guidelines must be followed ¨ Mix of Programs and genders on teams preferred (use buddy or “Truddy” [3 -deep] system) ¨ Attendees can SLEEP in different places with no proven impact on patrol method ¨ As with “boy only” small age spread within teams preferred (ie don’t mix 13 yr old boys with 17 year old boys or girls)
Coed NYLT ¨ Many councils have been doing this for years with NO issues ¨ Philmont treks and Sea Base also coed ¨ Common outcome is raised performance for both males and females
NAYLE ¨ All sessions (weeks) will be open to all programs in 2010 (coed) ¨ Must take NYLT or a new “Bridge course” to attend ¨ Bridge course will bring current Venturers who have not had NYLT up to speed ¨ Bridge course will level the field for Venturers who have not attended NYLT ¨ Sign up SOON as space will fill early!
Wood Badge ¨ Syllabus changes – New Presentations on • Diversity/Inclusiveness (Day 2) • Communications Patrol • Generations (Day 4, replaces original Diversity session) We are testing a new Patrol Project idea in January – if successful, you may have the option to use this in 2010
Philmont Leadership Challenge ¨ Updated in 2009 to Program Neutral format ¨ PLC will be the model for NAYLE – they will be nearly identical ¨ “Beyond Wood Badge” concept of presenting new material should also work for “Beyond NYLT” ¨ SIGN UP NOW is there is only ONE PLC for 2010!
The Beads…. ¨ Wood Badge, NYLT, NAYLE and PLC staff are all eligible to earn 3 and 4 beads ¨ Guidelines in the new NYLT syllabus ¨ Quartermaster can earn 3 beads ¨ Course Director may earn 3 beads if they do not qualify for 4 (ie NYLT CD may not have been WB Troop Guide and so not eligible 4 beads) ¨ Course Director Conference attendance REQUIRED of Course Director for ANY staff to get beads ¨ New Certificate in production
Above all, remember It’s not about the beads…. It’s about Servant Leadership
Powder Horn ¨ Syllabus changes underway ¨ Will be Program Neutral ¨ Focus is “Resources for Units” not Ranger Award (all appropriate advancement and recognition will be mentioned – ie Hornaday, Merit Badges etc) ¨ Will be open to youth and unit “crews” ¨ Powder Horn is NOT a “leadership course” but a “resource course” but requires a Course Director Conference
What do we teach now? ¨ Until the new training course roll out or you are involved in a Pilot, use the current syllabus as you have in the past. ¨ Wood Badge, NYLT, NAYLE and PLC changes are out NOW and in effect as per the 2010 syllabus. ¨ TLT, CLT, Kodiak, and Powder Horn syllabus changes expected by spring
Trainer’s EDGE ¨ Revisions are done! ¨ Retested at PTC in July ¨ Find at: Scouting. org/training
Mentoring ¨ A new course on Mentoring is under development ¨ This Mentoring course is required for the new Leadership Society Award, which is open to Boy Scouts and Venturers
Summary ¨ The ties between youth and adult Leadership Development will continue to strengthen ¨ Program Silos will disappear ¨ Until a new training course rolls out, use current syllabus ¨ Promote PTC, PLC and NAYLE to your councils!
