PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This development program will be both theoretical and practical in nature. Participants will learn a series of skills and then apply these skills to real world problems, issues, or decisions. The instructors will lead the Rangers through processes that allow the participants to practice their newly acquired skills with an appropriate amount of coaching. There will be time for self reflection work as well as time to enjoy the Grey Towers site. This will be a highly interactive, non-threatening, and yet exciting leadership training opportunity. The program will focus on the following objectives:

  • Advanced level problem solving and decision making skills (learning state of the art group decision making techniques as well as team management and meeting management techniques).
  • Advances communication skills (communication skills that teach Rangers to communicate in group and team settings much more effectively, to handle conflict better, and to interface with the public.
  • Helping Rangers to develop both emotional maturity and psychological readiness (learning specific methods for enhancing individual leadership growth and development).
