Game-based Learning in Leadership

The only way to learn leadership is practicing. Game-based learning methodology (GBL) is particularly suitable for learning how to manage teams due to their eminently practical approach.

Pacific is designed by applying the extensive experience of Gamelearn in game-based learning methodology and includes a full simulator in which you have to lead a team of 5 people with different personalities to overcome all the problems they will face.


Game-based learning in leadership and simulation comes together into Pacific to create an effective and entertaining leadership course.

Serious Games on People Management

Leadership courses usually explain how to be a leader and how to manage teams theoretically. Sometimes teach group dynamics or motivational techniques. But this is not actually learn how to lead.

The problem is even worst when we talk about leadership and team management courses in e-learning. In Gamelearn we consider it impossible to teach what leadership means only theoretically. It has to be practised.

So far there was not any Serious Game in Leadership and Team Management, although many companies have already implemented courses in serious game format where elements of gamification , game-based learning and e-learning that turned learning into a practical and motivating experience and adding elements to let the students to practise the skills learned.

Leadership Qualities

When ask someone to define the ideal leader qualities many would emphasize traits such as intelligence, tenacity, determination and vision, qualities traditionally associated with leadership. These skills, along with the emotional intelligence, are qualities desirable for the good leader , but they insufficient by themselves.

Often we leave out of the list more subtle management skills such as communication, the ability to be sympathetic and understand our team motivations, personal affinity or empathy that make a manager become a good leader. Of course, there must be a certain degree of analytical and technical skills to lead a team successfully.

All of these are leadership qualities that can be developed by practicing. A certain amount of theoretical knowledge is necesary to be a leader, but the only way to become a good leader is through practice.

Types of Leadership

Traditionally it has been said that there are many styles of leadership as people, but that is not true .

However , great leaders are aware of their own style and know they must adapt it to the needs of their teams, so they make the effort to understand how it affects the people they are managing and modify it to make it more effective.

Leadership styles must be flexible for individual team members to communicate, and keep them inspired and motivated .
