One of the simulations that we did during the leadership module was the hotel management simulation. In that simulation, we had to run a hotel business. First of all there was a selection of leaders among all the group members in each group and then we were given the task to choose the best possible site for a hotel according to the availability of facilities. We had to look at all the departments like the finance, marketing, HR etc. The role of leader was to involve all the team members and take them along during all the decision making process. They were asked to lead in whatever leadership style they wanted to or maybe we can say their own leadership style.

It was a really good exercise since it felt like handling a real life problem within some real company because everyone was given some role like HR manager, marketing manager etc. The most important thing is that, whenever you are in a team as a follower you get to learn a lot through your leader and his behavior and style as a leader. So, there was a lot to learn and we also got to know quite more about the hotel industry.

All of these exercises will help us in our future carriers because the problems were real life and we also had to come up with practical solutions. It all seemed like a real life environment.
