September POWerful Word – LEADERSHIP – Week 4

As a leader, we have to make a lot of choices each day– what to do, what to say, when to work and when to play. It can be hard
to make good choices. How do we know when we are making the right choice (i.e. listen to gut, talk to mentor)? There are ways to make choosing easier. (1) Weighing pros & Cons: Does anyone know what that means (i.e. good vs bad of a each choice). If “Joe” had to pick a team for a game in class. He can either choose the most athletic person or his best friend first. What are the pros and cons each choice? Have you used pros/cons? (2) What IF? You can play the “what if” game to make a choice. So, you need a high mark on a test. What if I study? What if I don’t? What other “what if” questions could you ask for a choice you want to make? (3) Put it to a vote! How could a team vote help make a choice? When would you use it?
