There was a high turn out of club walk leaders for the ‘think-in’ held at Whitford House Hotel on Sat Jan 30th 2016.
Mountaineering Ireland Training Officer shared information on what MI have to offer to club members. Appetites were whetted with Jane’s presentation on the Summer Alpine meets.
Improvements to web site guidelines for Walkers and Leaders were discussed.
Styles of leadership were outlined by Colin Gibbon, Shielbaggan. It was acknowledged that different styles may be needed at different stages of the same day with the same group.
Group discussions brought lots of support to leaders, especially those who are just starting into this role.
This was a very worthwhile and enjoyable workshop thanks to pre-planning group – Erica Whitty, Mick Wall, Liam Millar and Colette Mahon
