Richardson DeMolay Chapter Debuts New Leadership Course

Leadership Course, Session 1

At the Chapter meeting of Saturday, February 25, 2017, Chapter Dad Donnye Winship introduced a new Leadership Course that he is creating with assistance from Dad Lynn Little. In Lesson 1 of the Course, entitled, What is Leadership?, the boys were asked what makes a good leader and to name some good and bad leaders. They learned about various types of leaders and their leadership traits, as well as which types of leadership and which leadership traits may be more or less effective under various circumstances. This session represented the unveiling of the course, and it was well received by the boys.


Leadership Course, Session 2

At the Chapter meeting of Saturday, March 18, Chapter Dad Donnye Winship presented Session 2―Leader, Know Thyself‒and Why It Matters―of the new Leadership Course that he is developing with the help of Dad Lynn Little. This Session began with a team-building exercise, in which three teams competed against each other, using only strands of uncooked spaghetti, Scotch tape, string, and a marshmallow, to see which team could build the tallest tower in a short period of time. Then Dad Winship led the participants through an exercise to learn their fundamental personality type and explained how knowing their personality type could aid them in setting personal one-year, two-year, and five-year goals for all aspects of their lives.
