The Leadership Metaphor Explorer Kit is a dynamic, interactive tool designed to stimulate creative, insightful conversations in and among groups about leadership.

The set, which includes a deck of 83 postcard-size cards illustrated with a rich variety of drawings and captions and a comprehensive facilitator's guide, is designed to help people understand how leadership plays out in their organizations, communities, and across boundaries.

This hands-on game uses metaphorical images and captions to open a dialogue about the three stages of dependent, independent, and interdependent leadership cultures. Individuals choose images that resonate with them and then participate in a group discussion about leadership in organizations.

A typical 30-90 minute session follows a five-step process:

  1. Prepare. Define the session's purpose and choose participants.
  2. Frame. Use specific questions to set up the conversation that the session is meant to provoke.
  3. Browse. Each participant chooses one or more cards in response to the specific framing questions put to the group.
  4. Reflect and Converse. The participants discuss their cards - why they chose them, differences and similarities, and so on.
  5. Extend. Carry the session results and conversion to other groups across the organization.

Kit includes:
Card deck: 83 cards, 4 in. x 6 in.
Facilitator's guide: 70 pages, paperback
