Role Play Exercises:

From Yucky to Productive!


We've all experienced them: those corporate , group, or industry training sessions that include those dreaded role-play exercises.  Just the mention of them tends to make the whole room groan, with the exception of the one or two odd balls that get excited about them.  For many years, Michael despised them as well, viewing them as mild forms of torture in the workplace.  It was around 10 years ago, during a corporate management training session role-play that Michael spoke up, took charge, and adjusted the parameters of that particular exercise. Immediately following, that training group adapted those changes to the remainder of that session and all training that followed. In this session, Michael will share that experience and show us how to get the most out of these, and yes: there will be some role play.  It'll be fun, I promise!

  • Benefits & Examples of effective role-play exercises
