Summary of the Experience

The League of Stars is a unique modular simulation program that provides leaders with an engaging learning environment based on the elements of today’s complex and challenging business and organizational realities. Through a series of wondrous and creative simulated, interconnected worlds that are strangely similar to real life, participants are challenged to develop key managerial and leadership mindsets and to practice behaviors that will help them in one of the most important roles in the organization – leading from the middle.

Participants are plunged into an exhilarating galaxy 1,000 years in the future. They face challenges and choices designed to bring them face to face with their own abilities as leaders, managers and team members. Together, they strategize, plan, and act. They face the consequences of their choices – without the real-world consequences of failure – in a fun, imaginative and sometimes stressful experience. Participants take risks, enjoy, learn, and take a quantum leap forward in their own development. It is a learning experience they will never forget!

Debrief

Facilitated group debriefings after each mission (simulation experience) maximize the value of each of the five immersive experiences. The debriefings flow seamlessly into the larger workshops of a conference, training program or event. Participants draw key insights from their experiences, which are applicable to the real-world challenges they are facing and can be further leveraged in workshops built around deep exploration and discovery.
