Igniting change in the BSP

It has been less than one hour since KK, Lester, and I gave our Woodbadge leadership training module on Personal Development Plans.

I am exhausted…

I poured 110% of myself into that presentation and even though our audience was a little smaller than expected, it was worth it. I saw more than just heads nodding in the crowd, I saw in their eyes that they were really thinking about what we were saying. One BSP Rover Advisor who thanked me after the presentation had watery eyes.

I really want to thank Kev for securing the venue and audience for us. It would not have been possible if he did not propose to hold a second separate presentation to the Rover Advisors, instead of a joint presentation to Advisors and Rover Scouts.

We talked about real individual personal development, about caring for the individuals, about the Rover Advisor’s duty and responsibility to be involved in personal development, about being a mentor and more than just a friend, about deep dives to truly understand the individual, about nudging a Rover out of their comfort zone, about trust, and about the urgency to effect change now.

But now comes the hard part. It felt great to receive handshakes and hear the “thank you”s from the BSP Rover Advisors after the presentation, but if there is no action then there will be no change. I told each of the individuals who thanked me this “You’re welcome. Now comes the hard work. Ready?”

Our presentation is not the end of the training. It is just the beginning as we work together with BSP to continue the momentum and impact some real change.

    Dear friends of the Philippines,

    Thank you for your comments! We had a great time meeting you all at the Climate Change workshops, and you have impressed me with your enthusiasm for thinking green. We’re counting on you to spread the knowledge to your friends! We would love to to hear back from you with news of how you have changed to reduce your carbon footprint.
