Follow Up Questions Is there a gap between how you should spend your energy and how you actually spend it? Are there some behaviors that are taking up too much of your leadership time? Are there some strategies that you can employ that would move you closer to your ideal distribution of behavior?
Some groups may want to calculate behavior totals to see how their peers are spending their energy. From the third column it is easy to move into a discussion about "ideal" leader distribution of energy. You may also use this same format with both meeting and team interaction.

They ask each other a set of questions provided by the facilitator and record the responses. Below are some leadership interview questions that I have used in this activity: How do you motivate your reports?
How do you keep your reports meaningfully informed? How do you recognize successful work? When the full group reconvenes, the facilitator asks participants to share leadership tips and strategies that they picked up in their interviews.
The facilitator may want to make a master list of these to pass out later. Have the group brainstorm for interview questions to be used in the interviews.
