Why Simulation-Based Training Enhances Leadership Skills

If you want to hone a skill or excel at something, learning by doing is a must.

While hands-on experience is essential for developing leadership skills, gaining that type of valuable experience doesn’t just need to happen at the office or in the boardroom. Simulation-based training is another way to enhance leadership skills, and professionals interested in sustainability and green business practices can find that type of training in an online program at UVM.

The UVM Leading Sustainable Innovation Professional Certificate is an eight-week online leadership program designed for those interested in incorporating environmental sustainability into their business decisions.

"What I found most transformative was to experience such well-functioning teams. Although the program is entirely online, the simulation is built in a way that makes it virtually impossible to not work as a team, and the more integrated we became, the better the outcomes round after round. Contents are excellent and carefully curated, and the platform provides multiple opportunities for reflection, peer-to-peer discussions and self-assessments. Even if one has background in Sustainability, LSI will add knowledge and prime hands on experience on how to apply Sustainability concepts as part of the decision making process in a real-life scenario, with real-life complexities, constraints, and stakeholder management."

"Insightful! Productive! The heart of the LSI program is the team-based business simulation which fosters a rich learning experience. The simulation facilitates opportunities to practice relevant course content and critical skills, like strategy alignment or triple bottom line management or systems thinking. The program helped me approach business strategy with a wider lens; with an eye toward looking for system interconnections."
