Actually, one of the biggest complaints I have heard about the new (1990)
Scoutmaster Handbook was that they left out the description of the eleven
leadership skills. Made for a run on remaindered copies of the old one.
If a Scoutmaster is supposed to be teaching the eleven leadership skills
to his boy leaders (I use them as topics for a Scoutmaster minute after
each PLC), where is he supposed to be learning them? Not every Scoutmaster
will take Wood Badge before he starts working with his boy leaders. I
think that many of them have not even heard of Wood Badge at that point.
Larry, I would ask you to restore your page, or at least privately share
with me the objections that were raised to it. Otherwise, I might end
up posting them myself and offending the same person.
