There's one reason why training simulations are a popular choice for team development training: they work. That's because they're an effective way to introduce the concept of synergy and help team members quickly develop vital group-process skills such as consensus decision making, problem solving, communication, and conflict resolution in a nonthreatening learning environment.
Each adventure simulation in HRDQ's Team Adventure Series
starts with a suspense-filled scenario that challenges teams to work together to escape danger with only limited resources - and each other. While most people can rest assured knowing they'll never encounter these survival situations, they do experience the similar feelings of stress and conflict that accompany everyday organizational life. The Marooned Scenario
Enjoying a daytime excursion while on a cruise in the South Pacific, a group of passengers sets out to explore a coral island and walk off their lunch. It doesn't take long before they discover a long stretch of undisturbed, inviting sand. So they decide to take a break - and they drift off to sleep. Two hours later, they awake just in time to see their cruise ship sail into the horizon. They're stranded! With only the possessions they were carrying and the clothes on their backs, the group is left to draft a survival plan.
