Most leadership training initiatives fail to produce leaders, and few participants undergo a transformation in their learning regarding some important topics such as gender equality and diversity. Dealing with the core values of leadership, it is logical to believe that some of these values should be addressed early in life, while others may be gained or enhanced through courses, exercises, programs, etc. Empowering families, women, and children, as the smallest unit in society, is the most important mechanism to guarantee a sound and steady increasing of welfare and to provide opportunities for the young generation, irrespective of gender and diversity, to learn the needed skills and to enhance their hidden competencies. Simulation exercises may be an effective instrument to enhance individual and group knowledge, skills, and competencies in both youths and adults.
