Look under your thumb and share!

The Be a Leader Thumball gets the conversation going about what skills great leaders possess, and guides players through a bit of introspection as they consider their own leadership strengths or opportunities for improvement.

This ball contains 32 panels including both reflective and forward-thinking prompts! Players share their reaction to whatever prompt lies beneath their thumb.


In this unique Leadership Thumball, find a full range of conversation starters, including:

  • Leadership traits that I have or aspire to have in myself and my team
  • Ways to motivate, inspire, and recognize employee contributions
  • Methods for dealing with disagreement, decision making, and mistakes
  • Reflections on challenges, frustrations, delegation, and impatience
  • Approaches to promote growth and learning
  • Techniques to get buy-in, promote diversity, and share feedback

[NOTE: Silver Series Conversation Prompts are available as Thumballs, UNZiP-IT! Pocket & Deck, and Virtual/Remote PPT.]


Some seem to be born leaders; others must work at it. No matter who you are, you'll be a better leader if you take time to reflect on past experiences, discuss future goals, and identify ways to engage your group. The Be a Leader Thumball is a discussion tool to help you develop key leadership qualities and identify specific ways to communicate your vision, spread enthusiasm, build your team's esteem, seek broad perspectives, and more.

Be flexible

Expect to adapt your use of this tool to the needs and experience of your group. Some may be able to give quick or pat answers to a prompt; others might want to take some time to discuss or brainstorm best practices; still others might benefit from delving into a conversation about the implied leadership quality in order to discuss why it's important. If a player finds a prompt particularly difficult, invite them to take a PASS, ASK A FRIEND, or request a DISCUSSION about why it matters.


  • Discuss similarities or differences in replies.
  • Have everyone respond to the same prompt.
  • Discuss the long-term implications of various actions.
