Weekly Show Prep – 7/23/18

It’s not a phoner. It’s a discussion. This week’s CreativeCardio.com showprep digs into the way stories and questions can shape discussions.

Each week we share showprep ideas from the ninjas at CreativeCardio.com. Think about how you build a discussion between listeners. We’re not just asking our listeners to call us, we’re hosting a discussion that we’re including them into!  You can share a personal story, then ask a question, but it’s even better to make statements that warrant a response! Ask thought provoking questions that invite your listeners to share a story. Invite them to be a part of your discussion.

Here’s a few discussion starters you can craft this week:

Ever had your intuition suggest you should bail on a trip last minute? Tell me how God protected you from a real disaster?

BE HONEST! Has someone in your family actually thrown something out of the car in sheer anger?

What happened when you were a kid when dad actually “pulled this car over?”

When your whole family is traveling in a car together, what does the soundtrack sound like?

Your parents may or may not know this happened when you were home alone as a kid_______!

What song do you immediately think of when you think of some of your best summertime memories? What year from your childhood did you have your best summer memories?

Who has the best grilling tips this summer? Why do you feel so intimidated to BBQ in front of other people? Here’s a couple dry calls to get a discussion  going:


What’s the most meaningful wedding you’ve ever attended? What made it so special/memorable/unorganized?

Every been part of an unorganized wedding that turned out to be super fun?

Who had someone show up at their wedding that wasn’t suppose to be there?

What’s the longest flight you’ve ever taken? When you fly overseas, do you prefer one LONG flight or a couple shorter ones with some time on the ground in-between?

The Build-A-Bear ‘pay your age’ promotion went a little crazy with thousands waiting in lines for hours to save a few buck. What’s your experience of standing in line for a LONG time for something that was TOTALLY WORTH IT?

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
