Ferguson participant

I enjoyed the constant changing environment with the people we were managing. I also loved the strategy that was involved in figuring out who to assign to which tasks, who to coach and who to recognize.

FCCI participant

The way in which you keep us involved during our time was amazing. The simulation was real world and what I thought would work, did not. Going back and regrouping to get different results was wonderful.

GE participant

I liked the way we learned something new in between each round; it gave us enough time to absorb all the information, and learn some incremental lessons as we progressed.
