Black Bear - Facilitator Set

$ 187.75

Black Bear is part of HRDQ's Team Adventure Series, a collection of eight survival simulations designed for classroom training. The HRDQ Team Adventure Series starts with a suspense-filled scenario that challenges teams to work together to escape danger with only limited resources—and each other. While most people can rest assured knowing they’ll never encounter these life-threatening situations, they do experience the similar feelings of stress and conflict that accompany everyday organizational life.

Each two-hour workshop explores the concept of synergy and helps teams to develop vital group-process skills. A comprehensive Facilitator Guide that includes everything trainers need to lead the simulation and classroom training workshop, from comprehensive background information and expert rationale to a step-by-step workshop outline, alternative training designs, and a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation.
