Wood Badge Ticket #5

As I turn my attention to completing my Wood Badge tickets, I am going to publish these tickets and my progress here on russnash.me. Some of these tickets require additional blog entries to demonstration completion. All of these tickets were written on course with only limited time for refinement. As currently written, they may lack the clarity that I intend to impart over time.

One thought on “Wood Badge Ticket #5”

  1. 12 May 2015 – Report on completion. In October 2014, I taught the district staff about the stages of team building and about integrating EDGE into the process. In March 2015, I provided training on effective planning and backdating, and in May 2015, I trained the committee on communication and leading change.

    The training in May about leading change catalyzed a wonderful discussion among district volunteers and generated enthusiasm for improving our program.
