For the past few months we have been running a fun contest on our Facebook page. To enter, contestants had to answer 5 easy questions and then a daily winner was drawn from the entrants. Every winner received a deck of Do Lead cards, adapted from the book, that were intended to inspire leadership across all levels of an organization.
When one of our winners, Lisa Blair, received her deck of Do Lead cards in the mail, she decided to put them in to action right away and share her experience with us! Below are a few of the cards that she's shared so far. As you go through the images, think about what your answers would be to the questions.
Here is a picture of Lisa's team members sharing the card "What do you believe your core skill to be?"
This card reads "What do you take on that you should leave to others?" Lisa's team unanimously answered "technology."
Lisa's husband, the only bloke on a team of 14 women, is holding the "What drives you crazy?" card. When asked what his answer was, Lisa replied, "If I suggest one more opportunity to chat about how we're feeling, he'll blow a widget!" Well, that pretty much sums it up, doesn't it! :)
This card reads, "About what have you heard all that you ever want to know?" Lisa's answer was "legislation and red tape."
When Lisa drew the card "What type of environment juices you creatively?" she sent us this picture. That view definitely looks inviting!
Last but not least we share with you Lisa's answer to "What type of environment drains you creatively?" Lisa says, "I took your stupid card to the stupid market with lots (and lots) of stupid people and a stupid shopping list and it was horrid. And I forgot to buy most of the stupid things on the stupid list. I don't think I feel very creative in crowds." Ha! Looks like Lisa Blair knows exactly the kind of environment she needs to avoid if she wants to be creatively inspired.
Thanks so much for sharing your Do Lead journey with us Lisa Blair! We hope that the cards inspire leadership amongst all of your team members. To everyone else, download the first chapter of Do Lead for free here for leadership inspiration.
