The Leader’s Mindset Exercise (30-45 minutes) People tend to get what they focus on, and in this enlightening activity participants identify what their key areas of focus have been, and how to utilize those traits to be more effective at leading their team during difficult times. Having a better mindset will allow your leaders to make better decisions and take better actions.

By understanding how we grow as individuals, leaders will be able to enlist the deepest aspirations in their team to bring them out of a challenge strong- er than ever.
Final Teamwork Challenge (20-30 minutes) This challenge continues to draw upon the team’s ability to bring together each person’s perspectives and combine them to create a successful outcome. The conversation afterwards reviews the whole brain thinking styles and how they helped the team find a solution.
