Setting the Table for The Toaster
Have you ever wondered what level of “being ready” is truly required to be successful. Before every game if you asked your players, “are you ready?” you’ll get a “yes” every time. Unfortunately, it may not always be true. Oftentimes, players think they’re ready, but are they ready enough?
Leaders pride themselves on being prepared, being engaged and being ready at the level required to be successful.
During the Toaster exercise your players will be challenged to evaluate their level of readiness, stay engaged and develop the skill of quick-thinking.
