I have to admit I struggled with this, even though I knew it was more of an ice-breaker activity and not something that was SUPER IMPORTANT (in the grand scheme of things anyway).
At length, I decided on the following:
- My Progressive shirt of the day (since I always wear Progressive attire that was an easy one to say that representing Progressive is who I am and what is important to me).
- The following two pictured items (they really do go together!):
|This is a birthday (or Father's Day) card that|
Ben (6 or 7 at the time) made for me.
I LOVE how he spelled "special."
And the above pictures are the "re-created" version
of that same card by my team at work.
(From the same year, for Boss' Day)
I just didn't have any idea what to choose as the ONE best item to represent the importance of my family and how THEY are who I am. But I was happy with what I landed on because it went over well (everyone chuckled) and gave me a chance to speak about my TWO "families" - the eternal one (Karen and the kids) and the work one.
