Dan; you are soooo correct. Woodbadge teaches & improves one's
LEADERSHIP skills. I share your feelings about the term management. You
manage resourses, you lead people; unless of course you are from the new
school, then God only knows what you do. Notice that all this crapping
about Woodbadge started when a single individual on the net blamed the
program & not the person for what he/she felt was a great a injustice by
having his troop DO SOMETHING that IMO went against the grain of the
complainer-an ASM I believe.
Overlooking the rain & mud of Woodbadge & the fact it was not held in a
Holiday Inn or Motel 6, the one thing not mentioned is the assignment of
canidates to the different patrols. There were 4 of us from our district
so we wanted to be in the same patrol-to ease working on our tickets. On
arrival, we were told they have equalized the ability of the patrols-2
patrols were all SMs, 1 DC types, 1 CMs, 1 ASMs, & the Antelope Patrol:
2 college prof's (1DL&BSRT Comm), 1 Housewife (CM), 1 MD (DL) & 1
college student (DL then-now DE). We formed a lassing kinship. Stay
tuned-due to popular demand in the next day or 2 I will list my "Mother
of all tickets."
