Cookie ceo training

  1. 1. Girls Scouts of Central Texas Welcome Cookie CEO’s
  2. 2. About Cookie CEO’S: A year long program focused on either leadership or service through leadership. The program can be repeated to help you earn your age level Leadership Award pin or your community service bar in Girl Scouting. You must have completed your Service Bar through the Cookie Captain Program to participate. You will have the option to choose a service or leadership project that has been done in years past (running an event) or create your own project (making a video to help train Cookie Captains for the next year) to earn your award. Both of these options required a certain number hours of logged leadership or service activities. All projects must be approved by the Product Program Team.
  3. 3. Goals of This Training: This training will give you a better understanding of some common leadership skills and styles. This will set you up for success when you step into a leadership role during your projects. You will learn more about the program, set goals and plan your project during this training. If you have any questions about the training or the projects that you can do, ask your trainer or e-mail

  7. 7. Here’s a visual of the progression
  8. 8. Leadership vs Service Hours If you are trying to earn your Leadership Award pin, you have to log leadership hours. These are different than service hours because you have to take on an active leadership role. What’s an “active leadership role?” Well – Scouts earning leadership hours should take part in every aspect of the project that they are doing. If you are thinking about planning an event, you should: talk to your Service Unit Director about holding an event, help find a location, reserve the event kit, go through the kit and see what other supplies you will need, help set up, run either the whole event (like a Cookie Captain Training) or part of it (a specific booth at a Cookie Rally,) help clean up and return the kit back to Council. To complete leadership hours, you will need to set goals and see a project all the way through from start to finish.
  9. 9. How to Keep Track Of Your Hours Both Service and Leadership CEOs will use this hour card to keep track of their hours. All hours need to be dated and signed off on by an adult who is present at the time hours were completed. (Your parents cannot sign off on your hours.) Please make sure to provide a phone number so that the Product Program team can get in touch with the adult.
  10. 10. To Mentor or Not to Mentor? Cadettes can mentor during their leadership hours but they cannot mentor for more than half of their required hours. Cadettes must take on a leadership role if they are helping with events. They must either help to plan the event, run a booth or a game or do a presentation for those in attendance. Seniors/Ambassadors who are trying to earn their Community Service Bar for Contributions to Girl Scouting can mentor for their full 25 hours of service. Seniors/Ambassadors who are trying to earn their Leadership Award Pins cannot get more than half their hours from mentoring. Scouts trying to earn their Burgundy Bar cannot mentor for more than 5 hours.

Run a Cookie Captain Training Produce a video on Cookie Captains Run an event like Operation Cookie Pack or a Cookie Rally Run Corporate Sales Run a cookie publicity campaign Organize a Cookie Drive for your favorite charity Organize the booth locations for your service unit Create your own project!
  12. 12. The Seven Qualities of a Good Leader Anyone, anywhere can be called on to leader. Good leaders all share the some of same qualities. They can: Shape visions and goals Help groups make decisions and achieve goals Resolve Conflicts Motivate Others Attract, support and defend the work of a group Collaborate with other groups Delegate tasks and responsibilities
  13. 13. Why the Seven Qualities are Important to YouAs a Cookie CEO, you are being called on to lead. You serve as an example to younger girls of what it means to be a Girl Scout. Through the Cookie CEO program, you have the opportunity to learn more about yourself, your own leadership style and how to work well with others to motivate and support them to achieve a common goal.
  14. 14. Goal Setting As a Cookie CEO, it is important to set S.M.A.R.T. goals to help you ensure success with both your cookie sales and your project! S.M.A.R.T Goals are: S – Specific M – Measureable A – Attainable R – Realistic T - Timely
  15. 15. S The “S” in S.M.A.R.T. Goals stands for “Specific”. Specific is the “What,” Where” and “Why?” of Setting smart goals. Think about specific goals when planning your project. What are you going to do? Host an event? Run a training for Cookie Captains? Make a Video? Where are you going to do your event? In your hometown? In another town within your service unit? Why is your project important? Will it make your service unit better? Will you learn something from doing it?
  16. 16. MM stands for measureable. People have said, if you can’t measure it – you can’t manage it. Imagine trying to put together an event and not asking people to RSVP to let you know they were coming. What would happen if you had 600 show up? What would happen if you had 3 people show up? Do little things like as for an RSVP, so you know how many people are coming to make your goal easier to see.
  17. 17. A The “A” stands for Attainable. This is important in goal setting because you want to stretch your limits but set yourself up for success. Plan on your goal stretching you beyond what you would normally do but something that you can realistically accomplish in 25 or 30 hours. For example: Set a goal to make a 5 minute movie in 25 hours is attainable. This gives you time to plan, film your movie and edit. If you are trying to film a 2 and a ½ hour movie, you wouldn’t have time to write the script and film, let alone finish the whole movie.
  18. 18. R “R” stands for realistic. If you think about it, do you think it’s possible to get all of your service or leadership hours in a week? Is it possible to sell 10,000 cookies by yourself door to door? This is where the “R” in SMART comes in. Set goals that you know you can achieve, but keep the bar high. You’ll feel better about your project if you have done something that pushed you to try new things.
  19. 19. T “T” stands for timely Timely goals are important. We all know how easy it to is to say we are going to do something and then start putting it off and putting it off. Then suddenly, its due tomorrow! For your goal to happen, its important to keep your timeline in mind. Remember when hours cards are due (April 1st ) and plan your time line accordingly. Remember to keep the rest of your life in mind too. It can be hard to find the time to do service hours if you have a huge test coming up.
  20. 20. Communication – More Important Than You Think Once you have set a SMART Goal, it’s important to communicate what you are going to go effectively. During the later sessions, communication will be covered in greater detail. But here are three keys. 1 – Listen to more than what you are saying. 2 – Clarify what you are trying to say 3 – Don’t assume anything.
  21. 21. Leadership Styles Everyone has different leadership styles. Some people are outgoing and love to talk in front of groups. Others would prefer to hang out in the background and run things behind the scenes. Both of these styles are important can make signaficant contributions to projects. This is something that will explore in one of the training sessions.
