It is a dynamic and simulation-based workshop during which participants are immersed in a real situation requiring them to react instantly. It initiates an efficient process of change in the approach to communication and cooperation in situations of limited informational resources and facing difficult decisions.
The workshop program enables to develop competencies in two areas of influencing: influencing the system and influencing people. It is based on a leadership model described by McKinsey experts, which suggests that the achievement of organizational goals requires from leaders two sets of competencies:
- Strategic and system thinking – to build an efficient and operational organization system,
- Self-awareness – to influence efficiently people working within the system.
HEXGame is a metaphor for a large organization. Players participate in a strongly engaging experience of country management. They have very limited resources with restricted access. They have to negotiate on different authority levels and deal with local crises as well as social discontent. In a situation of obstructed communication they have to manage the country rationally and they need to fulfill their leadership role.
