The Time Is Right Now!

This is your last chance to attend Wood Badge training for over a year.

WoodBadge-PatrolsThe only Wood Badge course in the Greater Alabama Council for 2014 will be held on March 14-16 and April 11-13, 2014. This will be your only chance to attend this advanced adult leadership training event until April of 2015.

A few of the things you will learn during the course:

  • You will learn modern leadership theories from contemporary scholars such as Ken Blanchard (author of the One Minute Manager series of books), Stephen R. Covey (author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and Principle-Centered Leadership), and Spencer Johnson (author of Who Moved My Cheese).
  • You will learn how to apply these theories in practice by working as a patrol just like your scouts do. We call it the patrol method.
  • Didn’t grow up in scouting? You will learn what it takes for your own child to be successful as a scout.

Did I mention it was fun!

You will form bonds with the participants and staffers who come from all areas of the council. Men and women you can call on at a moments notice if you need help or advice. It’s the ultimate support group.

Don’t let this opportunity slip by you. We encourage you to sign up for this fantastic course before it is too late.
