Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Resolution of SM Scenereo
Resolution of SM Scenereo
Fri, 19 Feb 1999 06:22:22 -0500
Since I presented and requested advise to the situation to this public
forum, I believe this statement is in order.
With what appears to be exceptional people skills, one of our SA's has
helped to bring our Troop's "will the real SM please show up" problem to
an honorable and and perhaps win-win conclusion.
The veteran SM is taking the high road and looking at options to
continue to contribute his skills, experience and contacts.
Thanks to all who contributed ideas, suggestions and policy
clarifications. We are in the process of making the adjustments to
support this type of situation from not being in the position of such
dramatic influence in the future.
On a personal note, I was especially struck by a reply to the oxymoron
of ethical Machiavellianism... "The 12 points of the Scout Law" setting
the perameters of action-reaction. Sometimes when you're getting beat
up, it's hard not to "play to the level" of the competion. That's when
you have to be smarter and good... and committed. Thanks.
