Black Bear - Participant Guide

$ 18.75

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.
