This chapter highlights the use of a leadership artefacts activity as an ice-breaker exercise for newly formed groups. We have used this approach to great effect with learners engaged on programmes designed to create sustainable and responsible leadership within organisations. The nature and role of artefacts in leadership lived experience is examined. The revelations for participants of how personal artefacts can catalyse reflective insight into leadership practice is explored. We hope the chapter will serve as good practice and that it will be of interest to practitioners in customising and applying it to other leadership development programmes.
