Clients that integrate our participatory approach get better results from their leaders. Our approach has taken years to learn and perfect. It leverages a distinctive interactive case study format that places your leaders at the center of an unfolding story and invites them to guide the characters in the story to a better resolution. The result is a highly interactive experience where your leaders don't just acquire insights. They are challenged to apply those in both the case study and their own unfolding story. The experience includes:
Live professional actors portray scenes that reflect the challenges in everyday leadership, business, and culture.
Participants ask candid questions of characters to gain a more nuanced understanding of the character outside the sometimes political context of team meetings. Characters reveal mindsets, concerns, desires, biases, doubts, fears, and other realities.
Participants coach characters to more positive behaviors and choices to find solutions - after which the actors spontaneously enact the suggestions of the participants. This creates an unscripted yet structured experience, just like our everyday interactions in ‘real life.’
Participants also engage in the experience through various discussion formats (i.e. at tables) to share observations, insights, and application.
One of our professional facilitators guides the experience and expertly weaves together the interaction, leadership content, and your own message for a cohesive, impactful experience.
High-impact leadership content is weaved into the experience to provide the tools, context, and framework to apply the case study experience.
The actors and coaching the actors was so impactful.
