There are 77 [email protected]® Cards consisting of the key words and phrases that form the essential components of Higher Ground Leadership®, each with a specific theme that will guide you in planning, decision-making, or sparking a fresh way of looking at things, and each with gorgeous artwork by renowned artist David Rankine, and a message or answer for you. Examples of the words used are authenticity, courage, empathy, humility, integrity, legacy, purpose, respect, service, and trust, which are representative of the words that are lived by inspiring leaders. Their purpose is to help each of us to invite spirit into our work and life.
There are two sets of cards—a large set in a velvet bag for regular use, and a much smaller set for traveling. Each card is decorated with a unique design and original artwork by David Rankine, featuring a different word and art for every card. Also included is a gorgeous velvet-covered book containing an original companion text for each of the 77 words written by Lance Secretan, and a verse written by Marie Knapp which can serve as a guide for using the [email protected]® Cards.
These cards can be used in many ways. For example, they are an excellent way to initiate inspired introductions during team building retreats and workshops. Or, use them during everyday meetings—during a challenging conversation about budgets or the strategic plan, when nerves are being strained and the energy is tense. Or simply select one at the beginning of each day and use the inspiring message to guide you through the rest of your day. Meeting facilitators can periodically take a time-out and ask someone to select a [email protected]® Card and then invite the group to discuss what the word means and how it informs the current discussion. The tone of the dialogue immediately—and always—transforms.
