A highly interactive and experiential 1-day programme designed to challenge future leaders and build leadership capability.
The biggest obstacle for aspiring leaders is a lack of experience. Working with in-house L&D teams on their leadership programmes, we realised that there is a need for a space in which to put leadership skills to the test; where participants can go ahead and fail, learning from their mistakes in a safe and supportive environment.
The Leadership Challenge was born out of this need, to serve as a platform for putting leadership training into practice. It works perfectly as the culmination of a leadership programme, not only because it brings all aspects of the learning journey to life, but also because it provides a shared and memorable experience for the group due to its theatricality and sense of celebration. Not that it’s an easy ride….
In essence a business simulation, the Leadership Challenge consists of a series of dynamic tasks with shifting expectations and unexpected deadlines; recreating the uncertainties and changeability of working life. Set against the backdrop of the VUCA world – volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous – the experience reveals who stays calm under pressure, who works with and through others, and who separates the important from the seemingly urgent.
Participants will need to use their feedback skills to reflect on team members’ performance and consider personal goals for their ongoing leadership development.
