White Paper: Playing Games with Leadership

White Paper: Playing Games with Leadership

Surveying today’s business environment reveals several key facts:

• Distributed leadership is lifeblood. Great companies are driven by great leadership, not just in the boardroom, but also at the front lines of the organization.

• Demographic chasm presents great risks. Businesses are facing a demographic time bomb—the retirement of baby boomers—that is beginning to affect the ranks of senior management at global corporations. New generations of leaders must be cultivated to replace retiring baby boomers.

• Traditional training has many shortcomings. Many leadership development efforts fail. While there are many reasons for this, the format of the training that participants receive is often key. A recent study revealed that management learning programs that use simulations provide significantly improved leadership competencies compared to those that use traditional learning methods.

This white paper will speak to how organizations can better use advances in simulation technology as part of their leadership development efforts.

Bring Ambiguity into Your Corporate Leadership Development

People (understandably) strive for symmetry in their work. We seek balance in our lives. Of course this idea carries over to how we plan our learning and development programs!

We think a lot about experiential learning at Abilitie. Clearly, we believe in its power -- learning through experience is at the core of each of our business simulation offerings. That said, experiential learning is not a learning tool that begins and ends with simulations. There are many ways that you can begin to incorporate experiential learning methods into your organizational development programs. In this post, I’ll outline what experiential learning is, why you should be capitalizing on it in your corporate learning, and how to incorporate it seamlessly into what you’re already doing.
