Leadership Games

Reinforce learning with interactive games

While the use of leadership games as a learning method has increased, it isn't all fun and games for learners. Leadership games are an engaging way to reinforce learning, building on concepts and creating stickiness.

Use games in your learning mix to help leaders:

  • See the immediate impact of the use of critical interpersonal skills called Key Principles on their team's performance and level of engagement
  • Practice these important leadership skills and experience the consequences of their decisions in a safe learning environment
  • Strengthen and sustain essential skills that drive behavior change and business impact

Prior to playing these leadership games, learners need to be familiar with DDI's Key Principles by completing a course from the Interaction Management® system.

Is Empathy Boss?

This microgame is a fun, interactive way to brush up or practice your Empathy Key Principle skills. Listen to members of a team vent about their work world and see if you can respond with empathy. A streak of 10 correct responses certifies you as Empathy Master. But watch out! Missing a fact or a feeling earns you a strike and resets your streak to zero. Keep trying, build skill, earn badges, and discover if Empathy is really boss!


Resolve to Involve

This short, engaging microgame gives individuals an opportunity to practice the Involvement Key Principle. Players listen to coworkers talk about problems and issues they face in the workplace. They learn that involvement is a way to generate more ideas and to show others that their input is valued.

Zapp! Zone: Jane’s Dilemma

This animated game provides leaders with an opportunity to practice and refine their use of DDI’s Key Principles, a set of essential interaction and leadership skills proven to boost engagement, performance, and results.

Playing the game as Jane Mode, a frontline leader assumes her role with a newly formed team made up of different personality types. Jane interacts with her direct-report game characters by choosing among responses that demonstrate the five Key Principles.

This leadership game features multiple levels, and learners must pass each level before advancing to the next. A learner can replay levels to achieve a higher score.
