The heart of the Mars Surface Rover activity is found in the leadership roles. These roles were specifically designed to demonstrate the typical leadership approaches. The specific behaviors were derived from the six sets of skills, including Communication, Thinking, Administration, Influence, Interpersonal, and Change Management.
A major part of leadership is communication (Anderson & Robertson, 1985). Questions are used to encourage, support, clarify, explore and interpret information. Active listening by leaders supports the employees, which facilitates better overall functioning.
Mars Surface Rover is a leadership experience where new or experienced leaders learn the concept and benefits of collaborative leadership. Using K’NEX® pieces to construct a Rover, the simulation focuses on the vital skills of communication, decision-making, influence, change management and more.
