Some of you might have heard the terms “push” and “pull” in reference of how information is obtained. Push is Guiding sending emails with updated, compulsory training and meetings. Pull is having to check the website or ask an advisor. The coming programme changes seem to have stirred up feelings about how information should be presented to us, especially in what order. Recently someone shared a document outlining the new award scheme on a Facebook group, and I’ve since seen it replicated in a few other places. It has had a mixed reception. But what’s stood out to me is that some people are quite out of the loop when it comes to the programme update and others seem to have detailed information. Now some of this might depend on the individuals role and ultimately their interest in getting new information (I’ve met a few leaders who have turned off all Guiding emails/delete upon receiving). It’s highly likely that the CC is going to hear about something before an occasional residential helper. But some things seem to be luck of the draw depending on which area you are from. I heard that TSS was being split in one area over a year before it was announced in another- and this was in the same region. Should all information be available at once to all members, or should it be allowed to “filter down” and prepare each level for the questions that the next will present? How do you think we should be given updates on information?
