Team simulations are excellent "Behavioural observatories" where realistic and habitual behaviour quickly shows up in participants and in their teams.

This provides facilitators with a rich range of stimuli which they can both observe and proactively intervene in key leadership performance areas such as the 7 below:

  1. Working in Teams
  2. Individual Styles
  3. Simulation Briefings & Updates
  4. Facilitation & Role Plays
  5. Balanced Scorecards
  6. System Dynamics
  7. Experiential Learning
