The World of Sabrina Simulation.
This computer driven simulation is designed for younger women (and men) to encourage their thinking about the potential choices in challenging situations. Peer debate encourages them to see that there are many options, each with its own consequences for career advancement, workload and impact. It’s dynamic, highly engaging, fun and oriented towards peer discussion. There is a 2-hour virtual version and a 6-hour face-to-face version.
The need for this tool
High potential women in their mid-career are leaving organizations at higher rates than their male counterparts. We find that the main reason is frustration with their career progress which occurs either because of a lack of discussion about next steps or a barrier to progress.
These women note the challenges in getting promoted, gaining visibility, navigating boundaries between work and personal life, negotiating pay and managing some relationships, to name a few. Advance preparation for these challenges, before they occur and before missteps impact reputation, will leave women less frustrated and more likely to stay longer. The World of Sabrina Simulation is designed to do just that – provide insight on options before the challenges become obstacles.
What is it?
The World of Sabrina simulation is a competitive, classroom-based experience in which women encounter challenging situations, debate alternatives and see the consequences. There are no “right” answers just ones with different consequences.
Small teams debate the options, reach a consensus decision and compete with other teams for the best outcomes in stakeholder management, progression readiness and business impact. The scenarios each team encounters are based on years of experience teaching and coaching senior women. The simulation is computer-based business.
