    It also demonstrates that one is not stuck to being either a follower or leader but it can be a choice we make to be what is needed, either follower, observer or leader and that each role can learn from our experiences and is of importance towards reaching a common goal.

    Using the silent version variant is also fantastic as other forms of assistance or support or communication can emerge and this too can produce some wonderful conversations and thoughts about how the group adapts to meet challenges.

      David, you point to a number of really useful observations to make with a group when you invite them to reflect on their experience. There is so much more to leadership than just being the person with the loudest voice 🙂

    Love the maze… so useful in demonstrations concepts around leadership and learning from experience. This is a go to with groups when exploring the themes around leadership and what leadership looks like and the styles available.

    It also allows the group to look and value the role of the follower as well which at times is not as valued as much.
