Whats your super power

I'm presenting at a conference this weekend. Its for Early Childhood professionals. I like to do a little ice breaker at the beginning of the training. It helps me get to know my audience better. While searching for a good activity I stumbled upon Seth Godin's blog post, "What is your super power?" "When you meet someone, you need to have a super power. If you don't, you're just another handshake. Don't say, "Hi, I'm Don, I'm from Cleveland." Instead, try, "Hi, I'm Don, I tell stories that spread." It's not about touting yourself or coming on too strong. It's about making the introduction meaningful. If I don't know your superpower, then I don't know how you can help me (or I can help you)."

I thought this is super cool. I've been thinking, what is my super power? What's something that I am really good at? How can I make an introduction that will stand out? Hi, I'm Holly, I organize events that ROCK. At least I hope I do. I've had two PTO meetings this month to finalize the details of the first dance in 200 years. I've worked out every possible issue that I could think of. As long as we break even, and don't lose a kid I will feel successful.

I think every super hero needs a costume. I found this outfit in the mall this weekend. This can be my Holly organizes events that ROCK outfit. Now to just be able to fit into it.

  2. I want my super power to be being able to stop time. So far, that hasn't happened.

  3. Haha that is a great super power and a great costume to match! I think my super power would be something to do with organizing, but how would Hawkeye be my sidekick?
