The ability to understand and build consensus with your stakeholders is the only way to get lasting solutions to problems. Without buy-in, your piece of work is likely to fail or prove costly in both time and effort. This simulation workshop will provide you with the invaluable experience, tools and techniques to build collaborative solutions to problems and overcome resistance to: getting results, decision-making, and change.
This course requires some pre-course reading.
Simulated learning blends immersive 'virtual' gaming with face-to-face tuition to create a 'real-life' learning experience.
Teams of three attendees play the same 'risk-free' scenario (a true ‘level playing field’) which you don’t get in the workplace, so attendees can really get a handle on which specific skills they need to improve, and get help with improving them from our highly-skilled facilitators who add-value and embed learning by sharing their real-life experiences.
The Simulation is based on Academic Research that models human behavioural systems and has high validity - attendees cannot ‘game’ the simulation or ‘fix’ the results. It is a computer based, realistic scenario, playing (and scored) against simulated characters, with their own personalities, beliefs and traits. These stakeholders play back at you, changing their behaviour, based on what you do (using Higher Order Artificial Intelligence). There’s a ‘perfect’ score, based on objectives and a 'perfect' outcome, with attendees assessed on how near the ‘perfect’ answer they get.
The one-day Managing Stakeholders simulation brings to life the universal leadership challenge of gaining buy-in and approval across a range of interested parties with often different and conflicting interests. Building your knowledge in the ‘soft’ skills of project management as well as testing your ‘hard’ project skills. It simulates many of the issues associated with corporate responsibility, including how to define the ultimate success criteria of projects and the value of reputation. Teams of three people go through the experience together, allowing them to verbalise, reflect and learn from the decisions they make and their results.
