simulations and scenarios
Simulations and scenarios are effective tools for practising, measuring and improving performance – for both leadership development and team development. They achieve this by placing individuals in unfamiliar situations and measuring the quality of decision-making. Applications include leadership development, skills development, team development and assessment of individual decision-making.
Business simulations and challenges develop knowledge and skills critical to the business in areas such as coaching, project management, business turnarounds and handling customer complaints. They also enable participants to learn and practise the skills which make teams function more effectively.
Survival simulations develop effective team working and problem solving. They are engaging exercises which require teams to negotiate a survival strategy by prioritising available resources. By measuring individual and team decision-making, it can be shown that teams achieve better results than individuals.
Business and survival simulations are normally run in conjunction with the Group Styles Inventory.
Management scenarios enable executive decision making to be tested consistently, fairly and objectively. They can be used for selection, development and evaluating potential. A range of comparison groups is available, enabling a relevant measure of performance to be gauged according to candidates’ experience and level of seniority.
leadership and team development
Simulations enable leaders to hone their skills and interact with their teams more effectively in a non-threatening environment. From a team development perspective, participants enjoy simulations but they also have a serious side including developing interpersonal skills, improving communication and enhancing the behaviours associated with a constructive culture.
