Management failure is one of the leading reasons for a business to miss its business goals. Too often, new managers are thrust into a supervisory or managerial position with little or no training on what it means and what it takes to be a good manager. As a result, up to 50% of first-time managers fail within the first year. This is why Advantexe has developed the Fundamentals of Business Leadership (FBL) workshop and business simulation.
The Fundamentals of Business Leadership™ workshop provides new managers with the skills they need to grow into effective and influential leaders. This experience helps them successfully transition from being an individual contributor to a first-line manager and accelerates their development to becoming a manager of managers.
The curriculum for this program consists of business leadership content, practical exercises, group discussions and a business simulation. This combination provides a framework for participants to learn-by-doing and allows them to retain new concepts and information and immediately apply them in their current roles. Topics may include any of the following:
At the heart of the FBL workshop is a computer-based leadership simulation. The simulation allows learners to interact with a real-life storyline that unfolds based upon their decision-making. Learners weave their way through the simulation by making decisions, reacting to events, and interacting with virtual colleagues and employees. Each decision is scored against best practice behavior and extensive feedback is provided on each decision.

Advantexe has designed the FBL simulation to contain “on demand” learning content in the form of embedded 1-2 minute video content tutorials. So, in addition to classroom or live delivery, the simulation can also be used as a standalone individual self-paced development activity, a virtual team-based activity, or as an experiential team activity where there is little or no time for content sessions.
