This activity draws largely from the Native American traditions. The Medicine Wheel is an ancient symbol that expresses the concept of the four winds or the four directions. The Medicine Wheel also teaches about the four aspects of our nature: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Each of these must be equally developed in a healthy, well-balanced individual through the development and use of volition (the will). A balanced Leader will incorporate the strengths of each of the four directions to create a holistic approach.
This is a great exercise for building a collaborative work environment. Your team will learn about each others' leadership styles, and learn to work more efficiently with one another.
