We spend too much time at work to not have some fun being there.
Literal notes while listening to the episode.
The goal of a mini-game is get your team focused on hitting the critical number. They also call them drivers.
Struggles implementing the great game – getting people excited about it, both management and staff. Finding time to do it.
No question, just the first steps to get started getting the whole team involved in the business of your organization:
- Read the book
- Pray/Meditate/Ponder if you’re ready and next steps
- Search out others running the GGOB
First step in opening up the books: buy The Great Game of Business by Jack Stack. (not an affiliate link, they’re not allowed in Missouri – What’s Up With That!?)
