The challenge in the game is for 4-6 players to discover the outcomes of leadership by working together to solve the maze.
In this game challenge, just like in our work life, all people involved must play a part to achieve the results. To achieve collective success, we need to agree on the direction (D) or goals of our shared work; we need alignment (A) so that our work is well coordinated; and we need the commitment (C) of each person to the success of the collective. We call these three (DAC) the outcomes of leadership.
The box contains the Road Trip™ instructions, debrief questions, Road Trip maze and map cards etc. plus the guidebook “Direction, Alignment, Commitment: Achieving better results through leadership.”
We used the DAC Road Trip with an intact senior team before going into detail on the DAC leadership framework. There were 8 people in the group so we had the CEO and one volunteer observe. For the observers, we asked them to take notes and listen and watch for things we had already discussed (e.g., MBTI preferences). The set up was minimal. The team was able to experience direction, alignment, and commitment (and at times lack thereof) which made the framework more real. The CEO was able to watch his team in action, listen (without taking action or stepping in), and reflect on what it was like to observe. Everyone was engaged and had fun.”
