We did a "get to know you" activity on Friday that involved our shoes. My assistant director told me to pack a pair of shoes I love. Problem: I love all of my shoes. No joke. So, the decision was challenging. However, I decided to bring my most recent pair of loved shoes; the Jimmy Choo's. But of course. I think everyone guessed they were mine.
We did another activity which spanned the length of our retreat, and that was to make a collage for each person of things that made you think of them. Mine looked like this at the end of the retreat:
The small one's say: "now that's positivenergy" & "staying on track when no one is looking over your shoulder"
I am not always gentle nor calm, nor am I always positive, but I'm thankful that that's the way I'm perceived.
I'm also thankful to be a part of the leadership team where I work and hope to leave a footprint worth following.
