“When you introduce the fun factor into aspects of business it’s a brilliant move.”
Most people typically don’t think of play in the context of business. After all, the two terms are seemingly at opposite ends of the spectrum. Play is fun and joyful. And business, well, business is supposed to be drab and serious. Or is it?
My guest today believes play – and its close cousins fun and games – is a critical component of business. Business and play are not mutually exclusive. In fact, in this new age of business, play is vital to the success of organizations.
On today’s edition of the Grow My Revenue podcast, I speak with Simcha Gluck, the co-founder of FreshBiz, a training and development company that uses game-based learning to improve the performance of organizations around the world.
Simcha and I talk about the biggest mistakes companies make when it comes to employee engagement and development; how fun and games can be leveraged in business to create tangible results; and why companies should encourage their employees to think like entrepreneurs.
