boy scout leadership

Which position leads in this troop? (answers spl, maybe scoutmaster)
Anyone else? (answers aspl, patrol leader, scoutmaster, ...)
OK, those are the Leaders of the troop, the guys that run the show, the guys with the cool patches, the guys in control.

This is an 'l' (hold right index finger up vertically)
This is an 'L' (stick right thumb out horizontally)
Do you see the difference?
This 'l' is a Little L.
This 'L' is a Big L.
(from now on, make the Big or Little L sign as appropriate)

This is a key difference, especially when we're talking about leaders. The ones you mentioned are 'L'eaders - guys in a position of leadership. You think of them as 'l'eaders because of their position.

But, a 'l'eader is someone that leads because some leadership is needed, not because he is in a position. A 'l'eader is proactive - he sees a need and takes care of it. A 'l'eader steps up and makes decisions.

All of you can and should be 'l'eaders, whether or not you're a 'L'eader.

So, basically:

Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
