Cat Herding Adult Merit Badge
Have you ever tried to herd cats? You can use a broom or any other device and all they do is continue to scatter. Working with people sometimes seems like herding cats. You have earned this merit badge if:
- You have served in a Scouting position trying to get boys or girls to move in a predetermined direction together and experienced the frustration of having to chase them constantly to get them to the location you were headed for.
- You've worked with a group of people on a project and experienced the frustration of having each of them head in a different direction while trying to accomplish the task.
- You've tried to coach a group of youngsters in a soccer game. Almost seems like they are playing swarm ball.
Remember, you can award this Adult Merit Badge to someone you think qualifies - as well as earning it yourself!
