New Leadership Site-2020

          Welcome to the new leadership site. Here you will find descriptions of the different aspects it takes to be a leader in a troop. Remember that holding a leadership position is required starting at star. While leadership is not required before star, if you would like show leadership in our troop before star, look around at any leadership positions you might be interested in. Below is a short video by the university of Sydney outlining what leadership is.
Remember, being a leader is not about bossing others around, it is about being a servent for others and enabling others to do their best work. Keep that in mind as you review what leadership is.

"To add value to others, one must first value others." --John Maxwell

"A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent." --Douglas MacArthur

"The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers." --Ralph Nader
