Leadership Experiences

We design scenarios that teach the basics of leadership. Participants learn valuable leader skills and then immediately put them into practice in challenging scenarios. In this way, they build new skills while leading their teams to accomplish their assigned mission. The learning is reinforced with an After Action Review, which is an effective technique to use to learn lessons from projects and operations, and then apply them to future endeavors.
