Leadership On The Move 


What is SIMSOC?

“SIMSOC” (Simulated Society) is a simulation of real life society. LOTM believes people learn more by participating and interacting. Participants are given the opportunity to create their own community, along with the issues and challenges it takes to create and sustain one.

SIMSOC is was originally used by universities and other groups to teach various aspects of sociology, political science, and communications skills.

What are simulation games?

Simulation games provide a stimulating group environment designed to introduce ideas, concepts, and principles related to society.

The cooperation and compromise which occurs in most simulations can be used to establish an atmosphere of experiential learning while providing a common experience for illustrating ideas, focusing questions, and examining points of view.

What does the program include?

SIMSOC stands for Simulated Society, and that is what the simulation is all about… “simulating a society.” SIMSOC helps participants gain insight into the multi-faceted complexities of maintaining a “society.” During the activity participants are placed in a situation where communication, trust, problem-solving, and face-to-face interactions are a must! SIMSOC is an excellent teaching tool for those who need to truly “experience” the complexities of working with the broad spectrum of needs, wants, and desires through a diverse group of people. The simulation requires a minimum of 24 participants and a full day (6-8 hours) to truly maximize the learning experience.

  • Dick and Lura have facilitated over 500 groups--mostly community leadership programs, through this socioeconomic activity. Participants create their own society and gain significant value that enhances their personal leadership experience.
