The Leadership Reality guides managers in becoming leaders.  With today’s world of fewer resources to accomplish the work and individuals lacking skills and experience needed for success, The Leadership Reality provides critical development tools.  Tying real-world situations to the complexities of experiential learning, The Leadership Reality challenges an individual for leadership, for responsibility, for taking risks, and for decision-making.

Scenarios such as team meetings, employee situations, conflicts in communication styles and needs, community obligations, and company requirements contribute to the reality of the simulation and the ongoing decision-making process.
