ACTIVITIES TO BUILD CORPORATE LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT SKILLS

By Doug Bolger

The importance of corporate leadership development cannot be overemphasized. The corporate world is in a constant flux with challenges coming in from all angles. Managers can’t afford to be complacent in a work environment that demands rapid adaptation to different situations. Their leadership skills must continuously be enhanced to enable them to rise up to every challenge. The better they perform, the stronger the business will be. Top companies in the world realize the importance of proper leadership and so they regularly hold leadership development activities for their employees. Some examples of these activities include:

HISTORICAL SIMULATIONS

Do you remember real-life stories of epic adventures and tragic calamities? If you were present in those situations, no less than in the captain’s seat, what would you do to avert the disaster? Being immersed in such challenging circumstances inspires creative thinking and mental toughness. Trainees learn to come up with solutions under time pressure and work together as a team to conquer impossible odds.

PROJECT SIMULATIONS

Hitting closer to home, here participants are asked to implement a project that aims to change the ways in which things get done inside the company. This kind of corporate leadership development naturally triggers leader growth and business growth. To be great leaders, they must learn how to handle both the actual changes and the people’s response. Use this type of activity to enhance foresight, problem-solving skills, and communication skills.
