    HOT teams

    Has anyone heard of HOT teams?
    This is meant to stand for Honest, Open, Trust

    I have just been on a management modules weekend and this was never mentioned even though the trainers had come from Gilwell.

    However, a local Group has been told that this is what their District wants them to be and wondered if this was some new idea. They have also been offered help from Field Support due to some problems recently.

    Never heard of it, doesn't mean scout group leaders aren't like that anyway...

    Sounds like more gobbledegook to me. Why do we need acronyms for something that we should be doing anyway? Aren't honesty and trust in the Scout laws?

    If you'd been to a nationally-organised GSLs conference in the last year you'd have heard of FISH.

    Meanwhile, if you've been to a DCs conference, you'll have seen the presentation "Mind the Gap"!

    So instead of the law and promise, we have management speak.

    So as they say let's run it up the flagpole and see who salutes it!

    This sort of crap is fine for anyone is starved of grown up activities during the working day, but spare us this in our spare time please.
