i was always reluctant and looked to pass on the leadership to more capable people as soon as I could, if I could.

i was always reluctant and looked to pass on the leadership to more capable people as soon as I could, if I could.

at 10 I found myself teaching 8 year olds remedial math

at 14, I find myself a senior patrol leader of a scout troop of mostly 11/12 year olds – with adult scout leaders that kept changing or were mostly absent so I had to make things up as I went along.

at 16, teaching sunday school to 13 year olds (there was supposed to be an adult there but she left within two weeks, so I did the whole year myself. But instead of Christian lessons, I went through teenager philosophy books such as various “book of questions” that were filled with ice breakers for discussions and I’d gather people’s opinions and get them to discuss amongst themselves.

so that’s probably what set me up with this way of thinking when adult roles came up.
