How Train Heist works
Deeply engage your team
Your team will be so engaged they won’t know where the hour went! Using the perfect mix of intriguing scenario, mini wins, achievable challenge and inter-team competition, Train Heist will pull your whole team into the mystery and fun of the experience.
Match the simulation to your outcomes
There is so much to unpack with Train Heist, you will be chatting about it for weeks! The experience provides a rich tapestry of learning you can pull from with ease to match the outcomes you are looking for. This can be done via a structured debrief or casual conversations throughout the office.
Extend the learnings with add-ons
Using personality profiling, you can provide deep insight into the personal and group dynamics that arise through the simulation. Ask us about adding a DISC discovery session or use your own L&D team or provider to delve as deep as you wish.
Made for flexibility
All Train Heist needs to run is a room, tables, chairs and a projector. This makes it incredibly flexible to fit right in with your event and schedule. Don’t get lulled into thinking it’s simple though. The magic is discovering the complexity and depth of the experience.
