Productive Leadership


Every playing experience is unique and personal. Players can learn new things in their own time and try out their newly acquired skills without fear of failure. The game offers an opportunity to select various challenging scenarios that are customised for the needs of your company.

Continuous feedback

Players receive feedback on the choices they make throughout the game. The feedback shows how their decisions as supervisors affect the company’s finances and wellness at work. At the end, players are given a report, which can be utilised in performance assessment, for example.



Productive Leadership is also a manual for the dissemination of good HR practices. The game is also a manual for supervisory work to simulate various situations and test the impacts of planned HR-related actions.


The Productive Leadership game can also be used by corporate management as a strategic tool for managing change. It is also a practical strategic tool for any HR manager wishing to assess the impacts of various HR-related actions on the company’s results.

The idea for Productive Leadership originated from the need to provide companies with a concrete tool to improve productivity. Research has shown that well-being at work and good HR practices have a positive correlation with the company’s financial success. The methods learned during the game allow you to achieve concrete improvements in your company’s productivity.

Companies and corporations

Good leadership is crucial for the competitiveness of a company. The high quality of the supervisors’ work and testing, along with increasing their understanding of the financial aspects of business, are familiar questions in any organisation. Productive Leadership meets these needs. The simulation includes various challenge scenarios, such as the financial downturn, growth and cash-flow scenarios that can be customised to meet the needs of your organisation.

Public sector

Productive Leadership is also well suited for public sector organisations. It includes a number of embedded tasks for various fields, such as social and healthcare services, that teach and test the player. The game serves as a manual for good HR practices. The simulation game can also be utilised as a tool to manage internal changes in organisations.


The Productive Leadership simulation game is the first digital game environment in the world to reliably simulate the relationship between well-being at work and productivity. It is basically a learning platform in game format. Although Productive Leadership is a game, it is firmly founded on rock-solid scientific research. The objectives of the game are to:

  • teach people to take challenges the right way;
  • improve the Quality of Working Life (QWL)

I found the digital game to develop leadership skills, which was presented to us during the course, extremely useful. I think working as a leader is highly responsible, challenging and hectic, and for this reason it is very handy to be able to practise leadership skills using the game. Since I don’t have experience of working as a leader, the game showed me what it entails in a concrete, easily understandable manner.

The game progressed well and I got carried away with it. The best part was encountering situations that I had not yet encountered in my career but which I will surely face sooner or later. I had the opportunity to prepare myself for them, and receive feedback from the choices made and decisions taken. In my opinion, the game gave me concrete tools to face various challenging situations.
