Impact5: The Business of Leadership Game®

During this interactive business simulation, your teams are challenged with a series of decisions. Critical thinking skills are tested as they determine the short- and long-term impacts those decisions will have on their organization, customers, and financial results.

Focused on Five Leadership Accountabilities

Achieve measurable results aligned with organizational goals.

Champion change to drive innovation, creativity, and growth.

Influence the business across organizational boundaries.

Engage, develop, and leverage diverse talent.

Take action to become an effective, resilient, and trusted leader.

The Experience

Learners take the role of managing a department and working closely with reports and leadership peers for two simulated years. They must digest volumes of information coming at them, simulating a typical leader’s inbox, make decisions based on that information and their interpretation of situations, and analyze the consequences of their decisions in the long- and short-term future.

Gaming elements increase interactivity, provide a method of visually tracking results on a game board, and add an element of competition.

The Impact5 classroom-based simulation, used within a leadership development curriculum or as part of a leadership event or initiative, helps ensure your managers are ready to guide teams toward the right financial, customer, and operational results.
