"An incredibly eye-opening, intense and deeply reflective leadership experience. Insiderisk makes us go straight to the core of who we are, what values we live by, how we take decisions.
This is a truly transformational simulation that brings about the most honest and truthful exchanges amongst participants and with oneself.
Every leader should experience it."
Chief Revenue Officer
“InsideRisk delivers a unique and intense experience where genuine leadership is exposed and tested (through our own values and collaborative skills rather than our expertise).
We have learned a lot and will apply these learnings in our day-to-day job. Highly recommended.”
Group People Experience
“One of the most impactful learning experiences I have ever had. The ‘game changing’ ideas are spot on and leave you wanting to deploy them immediately.”
"Best training I have experienced. The technology has been seamless. The scenario allows for you to put yourself in the shoes of the person and react according to instinct AND once given further keys, lesson and information to rethink your initial reactions."
Mareen A. Hüffmeier
"We wanted to provide our participants with a growth experience, something to help them clarify their own leadership thinking and provide them with a framework for the dilemmas all leaders eventually face.
I feel that InsideRisk fully succeeded in reaching that goal."
