bill cooper asked about the publication "leader Lore"
i'm a very satisfied subscriber.
leader lore is an "about" monthly newsletter published by a couple of
scouters in utah, and i do recommend it to scouters who have been in the
program a while. the price seems as if it could barely cover costs. so for
me, it's more a labor of love. but quality!content!
it largely deals with the eleven skills of leadership taught at BSA Wood
Badge - but prior attendance at wood badge is certainly not a pre-requisite.
it does periodically feature one WB leadership skill, and furnishes
mnemonics to help u remember, apply and teach it to others.
it's especially useful if ur on a wood badge staff.
but they're certainly not limited to wood badge topics. they also promote
excellence in leadership, and encourage leadership training. the publication
includes of motivating and inspirating tidbits (so it's good for building ur
file of scoutmaster's minutes, or for preparing a unit newsletter).
most important, they have an infectious enthusiasm and vision of Scouting.
