WOOD BADGE

Two weekend course: Sep 16-18 and Oct 15-16

Wood Badge is corporate-level training proven to develop skilled leaders who can achieve the mission of the Boy Scouts of America. The first Wood Badge course was developed by Baden Powell and was held in 1919. The first Wood Badge course in the United States occurred in 1936. Since 2002, the curriculum has been titled Wood Badge for the 21st Century and includes collaborative material from Ken Blanchard’s One Minute Manager and Steven Covey’s The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

Content is delivered through lecture, group discussion, hands on exercises, and through the creation of goals that apply the leadership training received. Leaders at many companies (such as IBM, Motorola, and Intel) have recognized the value this training is to their employees. As such, many agree to pay the course fees and/or give time off as part of their employee’s professional development and training plan.
