This unique scenario offers many opportunities to practice leadership skills in a highly challenging environment. The premise is that demonstrations of exceptional leadership tend to surface in extraordinary circumstances. The day to day is about managing rather than leading. This exercise is not day to day!

The exercise begins with a briefing via DVD. The briefing happens before dinner and provides an overview of the exercise, which involves recovering stolen property. Following dinner “specialist team training” in two smaller teams takes place. After this it will be up to the total team to plan, implement and review progress. The recovery involves entering a vault and removing security boxes without setting off any alarms! The vault is entered at night from above, via a rope raising and lowering system. The security boxes contain information used to track down and retrieve the ‘stolen property’.

The first phase of the exercise is highly structured with information, training, planning and time pressure focussing participants minds on retrieving the security boxes from the vault. The intensity and commitment of this phase is palpable.

Once the security boxes are retrieved the exercise becomes open ended, unstructured and ambiguous. There is no clear objective, way forward or pressure to complete. Following the adrenaline and focus of the first phase, the late hour, darkness, uncertainty, and weariness provide completely different challenges for individuals and the team. This is when true leadership is required. The unique elements of darkness, electronic sensors and alarms, aerial antics and achievement against the odds ensure the fun, frustrations and realisations are firmly anchored in the participants memory.
