Activity: Challenge the Process 3–2–1
3/21/2016 12:00 AM ,
To help student leaders understand the importance of identifying past experiences where they overcame challenges while listing key lessons that can be applied to any future challenge.
Ideal for any size group of 4–60 high school or college students, or adults in a work setting.
10–30 minutes (depending on group size).
Materials and Equipment
Best for round tables with chairs, but any setup can be used.
This activity is an excellent way to change the environment of the class, to use emotion songs that will reach participants with a subliminal message and help put them in a more contemplative mood to then explore the Practice of Challenge the Process—either during or after the presentation of the material.
This activity relates to Challenge the Process as it helps aspiring leaders consider the notion of risk and to help them learn from their own past experiences.
Part of being a great leader is knowing when to take risk. It is also about understanding that by taking risk you could tap into great opportunities and achieve great results.
So many people are afraid to Challenge the Process because they are afraid of failure. But when we look back and really appreciate what we did that helped us make it through the tough times, we can really move forward to break through that brick wall—to achieve great results and lead people to their personal bests.
As a follow on to this activity, ask the group to discuss the following:
