Executive Challenge is a multiplayer business simulation designed to develop leadership skills and business acumen.
Participants play specific roles leading simulated companies. Each participant contributes to the success or failure of the business by making decisions and completing tasks as an individual, meaning every participant is actively involved in the process. Engaging the entire team underscores the need for a sound strategy and ensures that every participant understands his or her role in the execution of that strategy.
During the simulation, teams operate in a competitive marketplace. As pressures mount, participants’ true behaviors emerge, providing rich opportunities for experimentation, self-reflection, self-correction, and feedback. The impact of these evaluations is enhanced by debriefs led by experienced facilitators.
Executive Challenge was designed to address real-world leadership issues by letting participants experience real-world challenges. The Executive Challenge experience causes participants to lower their guard, giving individuals the opportunity to examine their own behavior, make observations about team dynamics, and absorb facilitators’ analyses. This environment leads to meaningful change in mindset and behavior.
