Leadership Live Simulation

Using innovation to bring leadership impact to life

Overview

How would you like to have the type of leaders that inspire and motivate their teams, and deliver great business results each and every time?

Effective leadership is not just about theory – more importantly it’s about putting what you’ve learned into practice.

We recognize the importance of creating a bridge between leadership concepts and their practical application for ongoing results.

So, what if your leaders could test out new behaviors in a safe, yet life-like environment, where they could learn from their mistakes without exposing your organization to any risk?

Built on some of the most advanced developments in gamification technology, Leadership Live is our new adaptive virtual simulation. It allows your leaders to experience first-hand the impact their actions and behaviors have on the environment they create for their teams to do their best work.


How it works

Leadership Live

Leadership Live is designed to be delivered as part of a facilitated program. It can exist as a stand-alone experience, or be incorporated into broader development. Leaders take part either as individuals or in small groups, and the simulation can be accessed via tablet and laptop.

The participant takes control of a virtual team and is required to make real-time decisions and judgements, with characters whose behaviors change over time. The simulation is adaptive, which means that everything the leader does (and doesn’t do), and every decision they make has an impact. All of these independent variables lead to an endless number of possible combinations so even the smallest decision can have a big impact – just like in real life!

The simulation features a range of avatars representing the leader’s direct reports and key stakeholders, providing a life-like experience that is both fun and engaging. It tests their ability to work through the team to complete the task on time and within budget.

Once the simulation is complete, the facilitator works with each leader to evaluate their overall performance. The rich data produced by the simulation not only provides you with a way to track the progress your leaders have made, but also to identify trends in leadership behavior. This helps your business identify potential areas for further exploration in order to maximize the impact of your leaders.

Complementary services

Leadership Styles and Climate assessment: Our Leadership Styles and Climate diagnostics are unique, industry leading and globally benchmarked online feedback surveys that measure how leaders behave and the impact they have on team performance. We suggest assessing your leaders before they take part in the simulation. That way they can draw on their personalized feedback as they go, providing the perfect opportunity to increase their leadership impact.

Activate Styles and Climate app: Our Activate Styles and Climate app helps support leaders over the medium to longer term. With daily tips and feedback, it’s like a ‘coach in your pocket’, helping each individual complete their own personalized development plan.

Your Leadership Experience: Our newest leadership development program incorporates all of these tools and techniques, plus more! It’s been designed for middle and frontline managers based on current and future trends in leadership development, global research and more than 70 years of leadership development experience.
