Drawing a Pig
Following from yesterday's post, an exercise we did during Pauline's session was drawing a pig.
I'm going to give you a few moments to find a piece of paper, and take a pen or pencil to it now.
This is a fun little exercise to show how your drawing might represent your leadership style.
If you draw your pig at the top of the page, you're likely optimistic and positive. The middle page is more factual or realistic, and if your swine is at the bottom of the page, oh my, you're a pessimist.
If your big is facing left, you're likely friendly and traditional. If it looks straight ahead, well, you're a direct kinda guy. Facing right means you're probably innovative (and perhaps left-handed).
Now, how much detail does your pig possess? More detail equals analytical, cautious, and suspicious tendencies. Broad strokes are a sign for emotions and risk-taking.
Size also matters: the bigger you've drawn the ears, the better a listener you probably are. And those with big tails have great sex lives, apparently.*
*Use this exercise with your teams at your own peril! We had a lot of fun with it though.
