CIRA Follow the Leader

Follow the Leader focuses on key leadership principles: respect, teamwork, problem solving, trust and communication.

The bulk of the book contains fun, inclusive, engaging and experiential activities. The real value of having leaders engage in these games is the debriefing times. 

Each activity has a list of suggested questions.  Most often, it is helpful to debrief immediately following the activity, but sometimes it may be better to do a couple of similar activities and discuss both together.
