Discover what represents leadership to you, your organization, and how it impacts what you do both as a leader and a follower. Everyone sees leadership from a unique perspective and this tool will help you see that visually and interactively! From elementary-school students involved in Cub Scouts to Fortune 500 CEOs, this beautiful and insightful card deck of 200 images will help you, your group, organization, company or team:

  • Interactively share and inspire a deeper understanding of leadership.
  • Build more meaningful interpretations of what leadership looks like.
  • See how your “mind’s eye” creates connections between people and ideas.
  • Adapt your vision to many individual and organizational learning opportunities.
  • Bring together and compare multiple perspectives of leadership.

All images representatively build on both research-based theories and the real-world realities of leadership.

...many amazing ways that one can use your (very cool) cards, and I am in the process of adapting them for some of the workshops that I facilitate. The photos, from purely an aesthetic perspective, are extraordinary. The astonishing palette of colors, coupled with the compositional attributes, make Looking@Leadership a treat for the eyes.Michael Kumer

The Looking@Leadership card deck offered a simple, yet very effective conversation starting point to brainstorm ideas around what leadership means to different people.  It was an excellent way of getting everyone in the group engaged without putting anyone 'on the spot' and it also helped with the ability to be creative in the process.mcgohan_brabender_50x50

I have had the unique pleasure of knowing Fran Kick for over 25 years. During that time I have seen him successfully motivate students, managers, and sales professionals from all walks of life. His interactive strategy connects with people, tapping into their inner motivation to excel. The result is a positive influence on future attitude and job performance, through a habit-forming way of approaching life. His professionalism and ability to relate with people is unmatched. No matter what line of business you are in, Fran Kick's Looking@Leadership series is a much needed 'kick' to unleash employee talents and potential. Whether a group of 15 or 1000, I have seen Fran personally have an effect and change lives from high school students to seasoned Vice Presidents. I would recommend this hidden gem to anyone of my business connections.Steve Milano
