Enabling Change

Enabling Change is one of the six core skills for Managers and Supporters in Scouting.


  • Support and encourage adults to think of new and creative ways to improve local Scouting.   
  • Be enthusiastic about new ideas, give constructive feedback on those ideas and encourage and support further work on them.   
  • Communicate their vision for the future of local Scouting and lead people through changes that this vision requires.   
  • Develop effective plans to implement change and then carry them out, working together with relevant members of local Scouting.   
  • Recognise the contribution of others towards change and improvement.
