As managers progress through their careers, they will experience occasions that prove to be critical in shaping them as a leader. In the Ashridge Future Leaders Experience, participants practise some of these critical events in order to be able to recognise and deal with them when they appear for real. Megan Reitz shows how simulations such as this accelerate the learning of a leader-in-waiting.
