Rob Pincus sits down with scenario-based training expert Ken Murray to discuss guidelines for role players. Role players’ responses must be well-scripted, and they must overcome their ego in order to help the students. Their job is not to win but to present challenges that the students must overcome. They also need to be involved in the feedback process to further help students. Some great trainers make poor role players because they can’t do anything that is tactically unsound.
