Accelerate your team to great.
Getting the best performance from your key people requires more than traditional procedure-based training. When the environment and challenges can change quickly, you need the ability to assess evidence, solve problems and execute plans with speed and confidence - in other words, strategic thinking.
gameAhead™ combines findings from the latest research with our experience and expertise to create a thought-provoking and enjoyable workshop that will immediately build problem-solving and strategic skills. Its unique hands-on, game-based approach ensures attendees truly engage with the material and each other, building team spirit and friendly competition along the way.
The one-day workshop can be taken as a standalone unit or as a gateway into our Productivity Program, where we work with you to expand upon the performance areas you want to grow within your organisation. It also makes a excellent element for a staff “away day”.
How gameAhead Works
Extra gameAhead™ Workshops
gameAhead™ Kings and Queens
Chess has been used successfully in company resilience programs and its depth, history and culture make it worth fostering in your organisation. Our workshop teaches this classic game with a fresh, modern presentation that requires no prior knowledge.
The workshop includes our exclusive Chesscards, an add-on to either standard or simplified chess that can add another dimension to evenly matched opponents or allow the less experienced player to enjoy a competitive game with the office expert. More than just introducing randomness, Chesscards actually increase the scope for strategic thinking and have been carefully designed to build awareness of concepts useful in the "pure" game.
Workshop price includes one set of cards; contact us for extra set deals.
gameAhead™ Think in Waves
Being able to reflect on your own strategies - metacognition - is a key skill in problem-solving and continuous personal development. This interactive workshop uses a mixture of puzzles and two-player games to teach the “Think in Waves” technique, ending with a thought-provoking look into an ancient but unfamiliar game.
gameAhead™ Stick or Twist?
The ability to correctly assess and make judgements of risk and probability is a key skill for almost any position, whether it involves workplace safety or sales opportunity. Using examples from classic games and exercises from psychological research, this workshop will empower participants to recognise and rise above common errors and biases.
