Scouting 101: Methods of World Scouting in Management Education

The BAS in Supervision and Management program has incorporated innovative learning strategies and contents from different industries and organizations. They include corporations, government, academia, nonprofits, churches, and youth groups. Managing people requires values and methods that could come from other areas beyond the workplace and traditional content developed for management education. This study takes the risk of exploring outside-academia learning strategies and the essential characteristics of the World Scouting Movement and its contribution, not only to the education of young people, but also to the education of potential managers or leaders outside Scouting, with emphasis in the workplace.

Global Youth Leadership Skills for the Next Generation

As a leaders of this globe, we have rights and obligations. We have duties as citizens to educate our next generation of leaders and to manage our resources. It is important to talk about value-based leadership, team-based leadership, and use-of-natural-resources leadership. Value-based leaders have embedded their value system and use it all the time.

We have been growing in a society that has many differences, divisions, and hate. Now we have to narrow our needs to have a better future and a better world. We have to enjoy our days and teach others how to be better to improve our world. Here we share a method and ideas to improve the Global Youth Leadership Skills for the Next Generation:

1. Have an Honor Code

When we talk about value-based leadership it is important to have an honor code, a set of specific statements that are going to be the foundation of who you are. Who is the kind of person you want to show to others. What are the values that you have in the base of your pyramid. Examples, Pledge of Allegiance, Scout Oath, Code of Conduct.

2. Add a set of standards as Law

You have to list and organize a set of fundamental parameters as life standards or commitments. Examples, Constitution, Commandments, Scout Law.They are a set of rules to lead or live better.

3. Teamwork activities

Our youth needs to learn to be in a team. Sometimes you are a follower, sometimes you are the leader, but sometimes you are the person who puts the pieces together, coordinator, communicator, organizer, thinker, or caller to action.

4. Continuous Progression

It is also important to have a continuous progression and assess the process to make adjustments to personal advancement. Use self-evaluation or feedback evaluation from others to be in the right track.

5. Be a Global Youth Leader

We are part of a global community. We are not only in own specific city or country. We think and act locally but we also should think and act globally. We belong to one world. “E Pluribus Unum”, out of many one. We belong to a society that are part of other groups. We have to respect the differences in religious, races, national origin and languages in order to be able to bring everybody to the mix. We are not a melting pot, we are a “big salad” where flavors and colors are added to be mix and then we can enjoy the benefits of being a global citizen.

6. Youth Leadership Challenge

Leadership is a process that involve everything you do in life. It is embedded in your blood. Be a role model to others. For these reasons, I challenge you to teach  leadership skills to the next generation. Involve children into youth leadership courses and youth groups. They will learn how to lead our world with a better foundation  . Get children involved in youth leadership training, teamwork based training, and value based leadership training.

If we want codes, laws, rules, or rights to be applied in our world,we have to teach the next generation to read and apply them in their local communities. Then we have to teach them to think and act locally and think and act globally to build a better world.

Be a global learner. Be a global leader. Be a global citizen.
