Training Methods, Team Development and Leadership Styles – Disney Movies and BSA Taught Me Everything I needed to Know to Succeed
Jessie McLaughlin, Fair Coordinator, Spokane County Interstate Fair
EDGE, Team Development, and Leadership Styles. Sound familiar? If so, you may have been
Through a Boy Scouts of America training somewhere along the trail. The beauty of these three
Philosophies became clear to me when I became a Wood Badge Trainer, and I could not wait to
see them in action…as in “lights, camera, action”. Yes, Disney movies can entertain us, but they
can also teach us. Wait, did the writers mean to do that? Together, let us play, revisit some great Disney teaching
moments, listen to songs, and yes…play some more while learning about team development,
leadership styles, and a proven method of teaching others. Hakuna Matata. Design Room
