  • How is it to be achieved?
  • Is there an “objective”?
  • How detailed does the planning need to be?
  • Is there provision for monitoring/modifying the plan?
  • Does a review take place?

Task (3)

  • As a group, reflect on the canoeing activity planning exercise you have just completed in terms of the above model
  • Did you take account of task, group, and

individual?

  • Can you identify any “shortcomings”?
planning and leadership possible leadership styles
Planning and Leadership: possible leadership styles
  • Telling (directive) - based on instruction/supervision
  • Selling (persuading) – as above, but with explanation of reasons, welcoming suggestions + support
  • Sharing (consultation) – suggestion-based; some experimentation welcomed
  • Delegation – responsibility for decisions passed to others while leader continues to “monitor" (and could intervene)

Try to relate the above choice of “style” to the ability of

the group and its degree of motivation

Be prepared to share your ideas on leadership with the group. What sort of leader do you think you are? Do you feel you are an effective leader? What type of leadership do you prefer in others when you are not the leader in a given situation? In what areas, if any, do you think you might need to develop as a leader?

Scout sections

Task (6)

In a leadership training exercise, it is imagined that a member of a

walking group falls and is seriously injured. There is a

need to apply an arm sling, support a broken leg, monitor

consciousness, and get help.

Use the 4 “styles of leadership” to demonstrate how

this might work out in practice. This requires 4 members of our

group here on the course to “lead” either by giving precise

directions; or using persuasive methods; or applying

consultation techniques; or by using a high degree of delegation.

  • Was there good communication?
  • Were individuals helped and supported?
  • What leadership style was used, and how effective was it?
