Theory & Development

Contemporary business book authors recognize the value of facilitative leadership and are calling for a workplace revolution that will result in employees at every level being given the opportunity to take control of their work. This shift makes sense, after all, today’s employees are better educated, more knowledgeable and possess better interpersonal skills than ever before. In light of these changes, a move from traditional to facilitative leadership, though gradual, is necessary. During this process, the group and the leader pass through four stages: Settling In, Opening Up, Participating & Reflecting and Transforming. The Mars Surface Rover provides an interactive training experience that allows participants to move through each of these stages to see how facilitative leadership works.

Uses for the Product

The Mars Surface Rover – Leadership Edition learning experience is designed for individuals who need to develop an effective leadership style. Ideal for:
  • New leaders who want to incorporate facilitative leadership into their developing style.
  • Traditional leaders who are being retrained to move toward a more facilitative style of leadership.
  • Managers who oversee teams.
How it Works

The Mars Surface Rover – Leadership Edition is a hands-on activity in which participants work in teams to build an operating model of a vehicle that can travel on Mars. One leader is selected for each team and is furnished with a bag of parts, a price sheet for calculating the cost of the vehicle, and role sheets that instruct him/her on how to behave during the activity. The only criteria for the success of this vehicle are its cost and the speed.

During this two-hour session, teams’ first manufacture, calculate the cost, and race their vehicles. Next, team members evaluate their leaders and leaders reveal their role assignments. Program facilitators lead participants in a detailed discussion about the different types of leadership. The activity wraps up with an individual action planning exercise.
