Solutions that help build high performance teams

Businesses are meant to flourish! And if, for some reason they don’t, leaders need to pause and identify the gaps. A business may either run brilliantly or take years to meet the break-even point, but what’s essential is to not give up. Implementing a brilliant strategy and getting to build high performance teams is decisive to preventing any business from falling apart within its first few years or even in the long run. Gaps could be anything – from an unskilled workforce to faulty systems and processes, directionless leaders and taking uncalculated risks.

SimuRise Learning Solutions bridges these gaps by transforming talents and processes through the power of experiential learning, thus helping businesses prosper. Our competency development solutions leverage business simulations as proven, powerful and flexible tools for bringing about personal transformation and fostering leadership skills, business skills and management skills. These solutions help build high performance teams and are perfect for team building events, leadership training, retreats, management training and organizational development training.

Are your teams working in silos?
Are they averse to risk and don’t make decisions in given time?
Do you find your teams competing rather than collaborating?

Make your teams experience The Search for the Lost Dutchman’s Goldmine workshop and your teams will never be the same again.

The Search for the Lost Dutchman’s Goldmine is a half day powerful business simulation, which focuses on developing enabling behaviours in the areas of strategy, implementation, risk taking, decision making, trust on leadership and collaboration. This workshop is a great way to help build high performance teams.

In a simulated environment, the teams have to go to the mountains of Arizona to mine Gold and come back on a 20 day journey. Based on how good they are in implementing some key business skills, teams will be able to mine more Gold for the organization.

The behaviours which they display and demonstrate in a simulated environment is directly proportionate to the amount of gold or goals they will achieve for the organization.

“Motivating and leaves a lasting impression”

For several years I have used large-scale games and found them to be high impact, motivating, and leaving a lasting impression. The latest example and one of the better ones is “The Lost for The Dutchman’s Gold Mine.” We used it for an international sales meeting to reinforce the importance of planning and strategy in successful sales activities. The game allows a serious debrief that exposes the learning points and decisions taken by the groups and why some groups outperform others. It provides for lots of fun and interaction along the way and the instructions include guidelines on how to align the game to your organizational goals and event themes, and to align your debrief as well. This event had the highest rating of the conference and people still refer to it 18 months later when holding meetings / coaching on sales efficiency and productivity.

 “Getting people to act in alignment”

The key learning points about Dutchman relate to the issues involved in creating and sharing a vision and getting people to act in alignment. It is far easier to talk about working together and collaborating for shared goals and outcomes than it is to actually do that, and Dutchman demonstrates that really well. The beauty of the Dutchman game is not so much in the play but in the actual debrief and what “nuggets of gold” can actually be mined within the discussion and its application to your organization. Senior Leaders are not always the most open to training simulations but since we have done the activity, we are still talking about “aha’s” that we have uncovered and plan to apply in our strategy for the upcoming year. I can recommend this game to anyone dealing with senior managers or large groups of people. It is fun, but it is also very effective.

“Sharing ideas for ‘continuous’ continuous improvement”

Square Wheels has been easy to understand and has paved the way for my associates to share their ideas for continuous improvement and quality. Square Wheels has also helped my company begin to take down the barriers to effective communication, not to mention it is fun!

“Motivating and leaves a lasting impression”

Using the cartoons, I was able to express what tends to be a very emotional message in such a way that everyone understood and became willing to participate in a problem-solving discussion. By the end of the session, the entire group was communicating and moving in the same direction with common goals.

The FreshBiz Experience is the perfect game-based training, designed to completely transform the work culture: from teamwork and creativity, to leadership and smart business practices.

WHAT HAPPENS AT A FRESHBIZ WORKSHOP?

3 hours of immersive experience
After a 20 minute intro with game instructions, participants “head out” on a 90 minute immersive adventure of playing the FreshBiz board game. The goal is for them to win the game, and to do so, they’ll need to collaborate, come up with creative ideas and solutions, spot opportunities, smartly manage their resources, and make things happen.

The Debriefing
AHA moments include participants realizing that they could have played collaboratively rather than automatically playing competitively because of old habits, beliefs, and ego or participants finding themselves stuck in the game because they were blind to the all their non-monetary resources.

Taking it to your Business & Life
The workshop concludes with taking a deeper look at the game dimensions and how they specifically relate to life and business, breaking down old beliefs and ideas, and then presenting new game-changing ways to think and act in business.
After taking tens of thousands of people through this specific workshop, we can tell you that it definitely has the power to completely shift how people think, communicate, and act. So let’s play!

“Ten years in 3 hours”

Ten years of lectures about teamwork didn’t accomplish what this workshop did for us in three hours. It’s amazing to see how the experience gets under your skin and changes you.

“Fresh perspective”

We got a fresh new perspective on sales and leadership. We learned how to build an innovation-based culture, and most important, we got out of our comfort zones.
