Wood Badge & training in general
One would think that people who sign up and pay for
Wood Badge would be going in with the attitude that
they will learn something. Unfortunately this is
not always the case. Even with the worst staff, if
you have the right mind set, you should be able to
come out with a positive.
You would expect more people in the general courses to
have a worse attitude (i.e.. - I know all this, why
should I HAVE to attend this training.) since they
are 'forced' to take the training. Had one husband
and wife (who were with my pack) take the classroom part
of the SM course and all they could do was say how
bad it was, and why they should have had to take it.
This same woman said to me: "Why should I have to
take BALOO? I know more about camping than you do."
I didn't want to suggest that she join or staff
because if by some chance she did say yes, I would
not want that arrogant attitude on the course trying
to teach others.
Anyhow - ATTITUDE, ATTITUDE, ATTITUDE!
