  8. Pick two of the following activities:
    1. Share the results of the Responsibilities of a Shepherd activity you completed on Pages 22-24 of the workshop Participant Workbook with your Unit or family. Include any Aha! moments you’ve experienced in completing this activity. Leaders, it’s most common for participants to be surprised at how many responsibilities include the requirement of presence.
    2. Share the job description of a shepherd with real sheep from the “Leadership from the Shepherd’s Perspective” workbook with your Unit or family. Present how leading sheep is similar to leading people and, if doing this Patch with others, compare the shepherding of people to the shepherding of sheep.
    3. Interview a shepherd of real sheep and learn how and why they provide for the sheep, how and why they protect the sheep, and how and why they are present with the sheep. Share this information with your Unit or family.
    4. Using online or print reference material, research the behavior of sheep and determine the similarities between sheep and people. Create a Newscast reporting the findings of the research and present it to your Unit or your family in either a prerecorded or live format. This activity can be completed as a Unit.e. Share the “Woe To” passages from Pages 31-33 of the workshop Participant Workbook with your Unit or family. Discuss the consequences of shepherding poorly, using this activity as a devotional.
  9. From the Action Plan you created on Pages 38-39 of the workshop Participant Workbook, develop a plan of how to shepherd successfully in one specific area of your life, with assistance from your Unit or family.
  10. Using the information in the L column of the K-W-L chart you completed on Page 6 of the workshop Participant Workbook, teach what you’ve learned about shepherd leadership to your Unit or your family.
