Activities/Exercises Ideas for Leadership Training Program

We are implementing a new leadership training program for our managers and supervisors with there being 4 different modules that make up the training. Each module has a computer-based presentation that incorporates knowledge checks along the way. The first module is about communication basics, active learning, motivating yourself and others, dealing with difficult people, and teamwork. We want to enhance the training in addition to the computer training with follow-up discussions and role playing type activities. I did come up with several leadership games, activities, and/or exercises that demonstrate these principles; however, I didn't get the excitement/commitment by upper management that I was hoping for. It appears they're looking for ideas for participants to demonstrate their understanding/skills in the workplace in their current roles. I'm a little bit at a loss of how to do that with communication aside from role playing scenarios and/or managers and supervisors actively practice what they learn when on the job. The downside to that is that you aren't always going to have a manager or trainer available for every conversation to evaluate it. You could have managers and supervisors document their conversations and what they learned and/or would do differently. However, that puts a lot of faith in the supervisors and managers to do it, which can be difficult in a manufacturing environment. Any suggestions on how to approach this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
