Tip: The Rule of TELL THEM
Tell them three times -- TELL THEM what you are going to tell them, TELL THEM, and TELL THEM what you told them. In other words, start with an introduction including the goals for the presentation, provide the content information, and summarize the presentation. This process will reinforce the message for the audience.

National Leadership Seminar

The National Leadership Seminar (NLS) is a weekend training program focusing on leadership development. Run by the Region Chief and his Advisers, it provides an in-depth look at leadership skills and techniques. An NLS discusses how these skills can be applied in your role in the OA and in other aspects of your life. The National Leadership Seminar is a weekend conference on the skills and attributes of leadership. It is intended primarily to enhance the leadership skills of the Order of the Arrow’s key youth and adult members as they seek to improve their services to the Boy Scouts of America and the greater community. The weekend format is designed to complement the longer, more detailed Wood Badge and Junior Leadership Training Programs. Near the end of the seminar, participants make a contract with themselves to apply the skills studied in the seminar on projects in their lodge, council, and community.

If you are interested in attending an NLS, please contact your Lodge Chief or Adviser for registration information.
