What actually comprises and makes a good leader? What could people as outwardly different as Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos―all very unarguably great leaders―have in common?
While there’s no single trick to turn someone into an ideal leader magically, leadership training games can help empower prospective managers and hence, improve their leadership skills.
Good and effective leadership is the genuine ability to motivate, inspire, engage and build respect with others. Leadership training games is always available but they only do so much in terms of practicality and overall effectiveness. Leadership, like many other soft topics which are classed as critical skills, is an extremely tough nut to crack. There is only so much theory that you can learn about a soft skill before you actually need to go ahead bite the bullet and head out to the real world to practice your newly-found knowledge.
Therein lies the challenge: to practice leadership skills, you need people to lead and these people (be it lower management or freelance employees) may not be immediately available to you. And to top it off, if you turn out to be a poor or ineffective leader, you risk widespread damage amongst the entire team. This entire enigma is easily solved by implementing games for leadership training within your organization.
According to Finkelstein in an article in the Harvard Business Review:
“One big surprise was the extent to which these star managers emphasize ongoing, intensive one-on-one tutoring of their direct reports, either in person or virtually, in the course of daily work. Cognitive psychologists, teachers, and educational consultants have long recognized the value of such personalized instruction: It fosters not just competence or compliance but mastery of skills and independence of thought and action.”
This approach stands in stark contrast to the more traditional approaches towards employee management and development practices.
A prominent example, in particular, has emerged that show how gamification and game-based training platforms are being leveraged to develop future leaders. The well-known consulting firm Deloitte, gamification and game-based training are being used to both engage leaders in training and have them experience what it means to be a leader.
