Each week on The Stretched Blog, we ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.
This week’s question is somewhat inspired by my experience with Servefest this week. Make your answer fun or serious. Let’s here some great ideas!
Question: If you were king or queen for the day, what rule, law, or policy would you decree?
My Answer: This question could go in all kinds of different directions which could be a little scary. Here’s my answer which is not meant to side with one side or the other of the political spectrum. I would create a reward system of some type for businesses which promote community involvement. There is so much power available in the companies of the world. Look at what happened with the Extreme Makeover Home Edition where Sears, CVS, Siemens, and several other sponsors worked together to build homes for families in need. If companies were serious about providing resources (including manpower and material resources) to help the community, it would be amazing to see what would happen in the land. As I’m learning this week, it wouldn’t only impact the recipient; it would also help those in the companies (the employees) at they worked together to make a difference. And that is what I would do if I were king for the day.
There you have it – my answer. Now, it’s your turn. Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment. I look forward to reading your response!
