How do eight to ten-year-olds wielding knives impact your job satisfaction?
LinkedIn blogger Nathaniel Sellers made some pretty telling observations when he and his wife assisted Cub Scouts in carving soap. This activity is a staple in Cub Scouting, but to someone assuming a Scouting volunteer role with fresh eyes, soap carving smuggles in a slew of lessons for professionals too.
In his post, Sellers shares his experience observing the Scouts (who were surprisingly focused) and wraps up with a “Lesson for the Big Kids” (that’s you!). See exactly how this cherished Cub Scout adventure equates to personal success and professional development for you by heading to Sellers’ article on LinkedIn.
After you read about his experience, tell us: Have you ever had a similarly enlightening experience leading Scouts? When has volunteering in Scouting reflected a quality or experience you’ve carried over into your career?
