|Get them talking
||What’s your motto? If you had to choose a phrase or quote that summed up how you work / live, what would it be?
|Keep them talking
||Do you know anyone who has a motto – or a “thing” they say all the time?
Why is it be useful to have a motto? What’s the upside? Is there a downside?
Many military units have motto’s – what would you want your team’s motto to be?
What could you do to keep your motto “front and center” – is there a place you could write or display it?
|Points to consider
||This seems like a strange question – who has a “motto” for Pete’s sake – but most folks have a handful of slogans, quotes or bible verses that guide their daily actions.
We spend so much time talking about who needs to do what by when– it’s useful to take a moment and talk about why we do things, or how we think things should be done. That’s the intention of this question.
Getting people to think about a “motto” helps shift them from a reactive / victim mindset to one where they are personally responsible and intentional.
||Reasons you need a personal motto.
