July13th, 2014 – July 19th, 2014, Idyllwild, CA, Idyllwild Pines Camp’s Encounter 924 students continued their summer leadership training, spiritual teaching, life skill training, and fun. Here are the highlights of the week.
Leadership Training with Kevin Relyea
This week Encounter students learned that there are no short cuts to becoming a leader. The lie many leaders out in the world believe is that there are “tricks or shortcuts” to being a good leader. When Relyea talked about “tricks” he referred to the time when he was learning to golf. He wanted to better his game, and when he consulted a coach to teach him, he was disappointed to learn that his golf swing form was poor and need to relearn. Anxious for fast results, he looked for shortcuts to better his golf form, but he could not. Relyea’s point was that people are looking for the shortcut to get them the results they need. Leadership is not a skill that can be achieve through shortcuts, it takes discipline and practice.
