FOCUS ModulesThe basic FOCUS program consists of five modules which cover important skills for developing strong leadership ability: Module #1—The Leader in You This module encourages participants to look within to identify strengths, as well as potential areas of improvement, and help define individuals’ character. Module #2—Effective Communication An essential skill for any effective leader! This module covers the importance of good, two-way communication in all facets of life and provides a wealth of tips for achieving this. Module #3—Group Dynamics and Teamwork Participants Learn about the different roles people play when contributing towards a team reaching a common goal. This module usually includes lots of experiential learning with tons of fun teamwork games! Module #4—Youth Involvement Explore “youth involvement and how to get more from others. This module encourages participants to get into the habit of making goals for both their personal and scouting lives, and provides ideas and support to help them with goal definition. Module #5—Situational Leadership Different groups respond to different styles of leadership. Beaver Scouts don’t like to be barked at, and teenagers don’t like to be coddled! Participants will learn tips on how to analyze the group they are working with and adapt their leadership style accordingly. The module-based nature of FOCUS provides great flexibility for delivery. It can be run all at once in a fun, themed, camp environment, or it can be run module at a time in the evening at a local Scout hall—whatever works best for your area and group.
