Succession Planning

 

Its nearing the time for the Annual General Meeting of the Group Scout Council and it’s been a hectic year.  The group were on Annual Camp and it was a great success.  Each section over the year had an action packed programme and the Finance Committee worked all sorts of miracles in providing all of the groups finance for the year with some left over.   The GSL had been a powerhouse for the past four years and it’s known within the group that the success is due almost entirely to him.  His enthusiasm, his time commitment and his leadership are excellent and as a Group they are “in Clover.”
 

On the night of the AGM, the GSL announces that he is retiring from the position of Group Leader feeling that he has given it his all for the past four years and is now standing back to allow “some other leader” take on the role.  He advises that he has discussed the decision at home where he is fully supported but declined to tell anyone in the Group until this moment.  He makes it clear that the time has come to pass the baton and while he will be available to work in the group he is taking 12 months out.
