Leadership Skills for a hill walking club

Today I was working with Rich Bentley from Mountain Motion down in Ardlui.  We had a group of 12 members from 'Our Lady of Lourdes' walking club and the idea was to introduce leadership and group management skills to the participants.  Along the way we covered alot of navigation, mainly micro navigation which the team lapped up very well.  We also spent a little bit of time looking at emergency procedures and what to do if somebody has become immobile, a potential outcome for anyone in the hills.  We didn't cover a huge distance as we wanted to get really hands on with the navigation and get back for some classroom sessions.
