NEW Product: Leader vs Leader Cards

Leader-vs-leaderLeader vs Leader Cards
What makes a leader great?
This question is the starting place for Leader vs Leader. Using this deck of 64 historical leaders to facilitate conversations on leadership will give you plenty of material to work with.
By comparing two historical leaders to each other you encourage reflection and engagement.
One way to use Leader vs Leader in a group setting is to pair participants up and give each a Leader vs Leader card. The pairs engage in conversation about the traits, accomplishments and impact of each leader to determine who was the better leader of the two and why. You then bring everyone together to share the learning. Expect this to be a high energy activity with lots of learning.
If you are engaged in leadership development through facilitation, coaching, training or teaching, this would be a great tool for you.

A Little “Writing” Play

WritingplayIf you are in business for yourself you probably do a fair amount of writing. It can sometimes get routine. Try a creative writing exercise to loosen things up a bit.
Below are two writing prompts from FAME Cards, Writing prompts for the right and left brain
The prompts in the deck are divided into 4 types of prompt – Focus, Awareness, Momentum, Expression. I chose one from Focus and one from Expression.
From Focus: "Watch the sky and write one line."
From Expression: "Go to the closet, create a costume, and come out writing."
Have fun!
