Everyone has some life experience with leadership in general, whether as a leader or from being affected by leaders. Bring awareness to what is effective leadership, why you’re having success in the areas where you are, and consider how to expand that success into the areas in which you’d like to grow. Round out your existing knowledge. Stay abreast of current best practices. Build confidence and sensitivity.
The Workshop is inspired by British Canoeing’s new Guide Endorsement program, and the Guide Modules that support it. Guide Endorsement is a broader level of care than that of a leader. While the Modules themselves are available to everyone, Guide Endorsement is only available after 2 years of experience as a certified Leader.
