The Characteristics of an Effective Leadership Game or Exercise

Following are the characteristics we look for when creating and developing our leadership games and exercises:
  • Grouped in teams or partners
  • Audience paced, not presenter paced (turn it on and it runs)
  • No to low material/props
  • Includes a competitive element
  • Physical movement
  • Challenging, but inclusive
  • 20 - 40 minutes in length
  • Simple and clear instructions
  • Full use of already existing resources in training room/building/campus
  • Safe and friendly
  • Appropriate music prepared

Print this list. Cross-reference it with your existing material and use it as a checklist during your next workshop or training session planning time.
