information sharing exercise which examines leadership, team-working, and communication skills. Team members have to share information to solve a problem. Suitable for up to 4 teams of 4, 5, or 6 delegates, the simulation takes around 60 minutes to run, and that includes time for a debrief and feedback.
Who is it for?
