How to play?
All participants sit in a large circle.
A volunteer dares to stand up, draws an Leadersheep-Challenge-Card and shares a story how they showed an according act of leadership in the past.
[Timekeeping by facilitator or self organized: approximately 30 seconds of thinking, 90 seconds of sharing]
Others reflect about the story and the impact on their thoughts and insights about leadership. They are invited to sketch and write a Leadersheep-Appreciation-Card. Taking turns, they step up to the voluntary speaker and give appreciative feedback while handing over the card.
Group is asked if this example helped them progress as a team and (non-verbally) decides on moving their seats accordingly towards the middle of their circle.
Next volunteer draws a Leadersheep-Challenge-Card.
