The Rocky Mountain Leadership program held in Breckenridge Colorado gathers leaders from government services in Colorado and several other states across the nation. These leaders come together for a very interactive week-long session. I was invited to join them for the last day of the session to map a summary of their experiences. My invitation started the evening before, which was a night with Thomas Jefferson! A professional from Williamsburg VA, our past president stayed in role the whole night sharing the wisdom from our burgeoning government. I captured some key points he brought forth, and hopefully the essence of his image.
During the week, the program manager stayed in touch with me on a daily basis providing the essence of the day’s content along with some pictures. From the thumb ball opening exercise to shaping the path as an effective leader, I was able to visually summarize their daily activities. On the last day – the day I attended, I integrated the content of the final presenter, which tied into the previous topics very well.
The outcome is a graphic recording and a high level overview of their key topics, serving as a reminder of the areas on which these government leaders could focus their behaviors. This map was reproduced, and each participant received a smaller copy to remember and continually focus on the key essentials of their experience.
