The Five Word Challenge

I read a great article the other day from Fast Company called  Simple, Direct, Honest, Personal, And Blunt: How The 5-Word Performance Review Works Wonders  By: Camille Sweeney and Josh Gosfield  (Warning the CEO from Kayak.com, whom they interview, has a potty mouth)

I think this might be a cool tool to use with our youth ministries and teams. Why not let your team fill out a paper with five words about your leadership?  Why not let your students offer five words to describe their youth ministry?

The interesting point about using five words is it’s bluntness. Unlike a paragraph where you can couch your words or meanings, five words  sum up your feelings to the point.

So, what five words would you use to describe your youth ministry, your leadership, or your volunteer team?  Try using three positive words and two words that would denote changes that need to occur.

See you in the comments.
