Outdoor Leadership Skills: A Program Perspective
Shooter, Wynn; Sibthorp, Jim; Paisley, Karen
Journal of Experiential Education, v32 n1 p1-13 2009
Successful hiring, training, and pairing or grouping of staff requires administrators to consider the relationship between their programs' goals and the specific outdoor leadership skills of individual leaders. Authors have divided outdoor leadership skills into a three-category structure, and models of outdoor leadership have focused on skills from the perspective of the individual outdoor leader. In contrast, this paper proposes a model of outdoor leadership that addresses the perspective of the program. In addition to considering the language and structure of outdoor leadership skill categories, this synthesis of literature results in the suggestion of alternate and consistent terminology for outdoor leadership skill categories and presents a model that can be used to guide hiring, training, and staffing decisions. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
