    谢谢 Mac.
    What is the difference between shadow and servant leadership?

    1. Mac 说:

      Shadow leadership is described above. It is where a Scouting leader only pops out of the shadows when there is a safety issue or a sincere need to intervene. All of the rest of the time the boys should be in chargethis includes, in many cases, unit discipline. The boys are very capable of running their Scouting unit (与, 答案是肯定的, direction from their adult leader using the EDGE method).

      I don’t know what you mean by servant leadership. I’m not sure I have ever heard the termservant leadershipin reference to Scouting. 然而, when I teach customer service skills to the employees of my client companies I talk about having aservant mentality,” which means the employees should serve the customersneeds completely, as a servant would fulfill the needs of a master. This is particularly true with the 5-Star Hotels with whom I work.

      I definitely don’t believe adult Scouting leaders are there to serve the needs of the boysfor they are not the masters. Adult leaders are there to fulfill the role that has been explained in my previous blogs and which shall be explained in future blogs to come.

      When it comes to serving the Lord, 然而, an Aaronic Priesthood Young Men leader should bow to the will of the Lord, for he IS the Master and we are His servants.

      1. 兰迪 · 索伦森 说:

        Mac,
        Servant Leadership is a concept that is being put forward in many Scouting activities. It is being taught at Wood Badge, NYLT, NAYLE and the Philmont Leadership Challenge. The concept was first developed by Robert Greenleaf. The theory of Servant Leadership and the EDGE method could help Aaronic Priesthood advisors magnify their callings asShadow Leaders”.

        1. Mac 说:

          I guess I went to Wood Badge too long ago. Maybe you can explain more thoroughly your understanding of servant leadership based upon what you have heard/learned from Wood Badge, NYLT, NAYLE and the Philmont Leadership Challenged. I would be interested in learning more.

          1. 兰迪 · 索伦森 说:

            Mac, I will send you a copy of the Servant Leadership presentation from NYLT. I hope it helps.

          2. Mac, you are exactly right; servant leadership as taught in all the BSA materials mentioned relates to the scouts learning to gain trust as leaders by serving those they lead. The first module of “部队领导能力简介” covers this principle. Although this is a BSA document, it obviously is very consistent with the gospel. “But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

            “And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

            “Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:25–28).

        2. Mac 说:

          So far, in every reference I’ve seen in doing an Internet search on servant leadership in the BSA, servant leadership applies to the boy leaders, not the adult leaders. From this I conclude that adult Scouting leaders are to use shadow leadership to help the boys to become servant leaders.

    Mac,
    I have a new Bishop, he never participated in Scouting. This my question/concern. I approached he this past Sunday that we needed to about implementing the Methods of Scouting and specifically the “巡逻方法” in our ward, so that our young men would have the opportunity to use and exercise there Priesthood Keys. He asked me to present him with what he called anCOE or Executive Briefon the pros and cons of utilizing the scouting methods in our ward, and the specific steps need to implement them.
    Do you have any suggestions and or ideas?

    1. Mac 说:

      Dang, this question is just a couple of weeks ahead of me. Blog message #17 is going to be about the patrol method. Email me (mac@imglv.com) and I will send it to you now.

      还, this link will give you some good information: http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/BoyScouts/PatrolLeader.aspx

      然而, it sounds like your bishop wants an executive summary, which usually is a page or less. A paragraph is probably even better. Try this:

      The patrol method teaches boys to lead boys and prepares them to be leaders of menon future missions, in Melchizedek priesthood quorums, as bishops of wards, and presidents of stakes. Through the patrol method the boys learn cooperation, collaboration, communication, decision making, problem solving, 规划, 组织, delegating and numerous other skills they will need as Church leaders, whether as a youth or as an adult. The patrol method is a perfect laboratory to allow boys to experience many of the challenges they will face later in their lives as missionaries, 丈夫, fathers and future leaders of the Church. Boys are organized into patrols in Scouting and led by a youth leader for the very same reasons boys are organized into quorums in the Aaronic Priesthood and led by a boy who is given keys of authority from God. The purpose of the quorum, and the patrol, is to develop strong men of character and faithful priesthood holders in whom the Lord can trust. The patrol method is the testing ground to see how well a young man fulfills his stewardship to God, his country, and his fellowman.

      1. Geoff 说:

        Mac: I look forward to message #17. As a new scoutmaster, your blog posts have been very helpful in affirming my resolve to run the full scouting program, not a watered-down LDS version of it. In message #17, I would be interested in a discussion about the impact of the ages of our scouts on the patrol method. A typical non-LDS troop normally has a 16+ scout as senior patrol leader, which we do not have in a typical LDS troop. I have spent a lot of time on this the last couple of weeks as I have attempted to plan out ‘my’ 程序. The age difference is one of the more common excuses I hear preventing full implementation of the scouting program. 因此, I look forward to some encouragement that the patrol method ‘worksfor LDS units.

        1. Mac 说:

          Geoff, I hope others with more experience than me will respond to your question.

          I agree that the automatic movement of LDS boys into Varsity and Venturing units makes it almost impossible to have seasoned leadership in a patrol. 此外, in order to give more boys leadership experience in a priesthood quorum, there seems to be a tendency to change out the quorum presidency every six months. Since the Deacon’s quorum president typically is the senior patrol leader (SPL), this diminishes the change of mature, experienced patrol leadership even more.

          My solution was to place a non-member boy in the position of SPL (with the bishop’s approval). This meant he could stay in his position as long as he was effectiveand as long as the boys continued to sustain him. 不幸的是, a year later I was called to a new non-scouting position in the ward and the SPL dropped out of the troop after I left, so I don’t know how long this solution would have lasted. And I don’t know if the non-member SPLwould have been forced to move to the ward varsity unit (which was non-existent) when he turned age fourteen.

          I’m hoping we have some good discussion on this topic both here and with message #17.

        2. Mac 说:

          I shouldn’t tell people the number of upcoming messages because I keep changing them. The Patrol Method is discussed in message #18.

      2. 拉尔斯·埃文斯 说:

        Mac,
        谢谢你, for the executive Summary, it is great. Your suggesting is a good start, but he wants to know, what has to be implemented, how it would need to be implemented and when we would need to implement the changes. I am saying now, but he does not want to over burden the Leaders, by putting to much on there plate at one time.
        I also told him that we need to get our committees fully staffed so that we can relive some of that burden our leaders are under.
        仅供参考 – I am the Committee Chair for the Troop, Team and Crew, and have been Scouting for going on 40 年.

        1. Mac 说:

          的 “Scouting Handbook for Church Units” 说, “The bishop provides general direction for Scouting in the ward and ensures that it is properly organized and functioning as outlined in this publication and in Handbook 2 (8.13.4, 11.5.3).” (4:1). Therefore it is the bishop’s responsibility to ensure the Scouting units are organized and functioning properly, including having the boy leaders called and functioning in their quorum and Scouting leadership roles.

          Perhaps you could use the link I gave you in my previous reply to show your bishop what the patrol method entails. You could break it down into steps to show what needs to be done first, 第二次, 等. 举个例子, 1) Determine patrol leaders and other patrol positions; 2) Have boys determine patrol name, 大喊, 座右铭, 等。; 3) Create patrol flag; 等.

          One of the purposes of having boy led units is to take the burden off of the adult Scouting leaders. Rather than overburdening the leaders with the patrol method, once the patrol is functioning properly the burden of the adults will be greatly lessened.

          Perhaps you also can help your bishop understand his role in scouting, particularly in providinggeneral direction for Scoutingrather than becoming too heavily involved in the minutia of the program. He should encourage the Scouting leaders to get trained and thenlet every man learn his duty” 和 “act in the office in which he is appointed.” (D&C 107:99)

          Those are my thoughts, but IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF OTHERS WOULD ADD THEIR THOUGHTS AND IDEAS TO THIS DISCUSSION.
