Welcome to the virtual cracker barrel, Doakley.
It will be hard to change an "easy" Troop. Easy, as in it's "easy" to let the adults do it.
Check with your Council and District folks. Commissioners, etc. Is there a NAYLT course available for your boys? You can ask about that in your WB course, too.
! What a ticket....
When you are the SM, Officially, get together with your CC and COR and talk to them about your vision of what a Scout Troop should be. Get their support.
Then, talk to the Council and District Training folks (assuming you have some. You did take SLS and IOLS, yes? ) and ask about the Troop Boy Leader Training course that YOU can give your PLs and SPL. It should be available to you thru the Council. That is how you make the boys BELIEVE that they can do what you are asking, allowing them to do.
One of my favorite anecdotes concerns the PLC I sat in on one time. The newby SPL was mulling over the calendar the SM had suggested and the PLs were looking at. The SM kept asking "what do YOU think?" Finally, the SPL said, incredulously, "you mean, I can make THAT decision?" The SM said "DUH...." and the meeting progressed . It was a good troop for the next year.
So: Take your training, train your Scouts, lead by example, go to Round Table, ignore your own Scoutson (as appropriate) and gently remind your other adult leaders that "No Adult should Do What A Scout Can Do."
