That's Precisely What Results In: 6X increase in PROFIT GROWTH 2X increase in REVENUE GROWTH 3X the national average in EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT If you are truly ready to experience this kind of growth, perhaps you’re ready for The Great Game of Business®. Great Game™ educates your people in the rules of business, rallies them around a common goal, empowers them to see and improve the score, and engages them by giving them skin in the game. By presenting them with the opportunity to win as a team, it taps into the universal need to win and inspires teams to excel.
The principles of Great Game are time-tested to produce the results you see above. Not merely a revised compilation of the same old techniques used by other coaching and consulting firms, The Great Game of Business was born out of necessity… the necessity to win in order to preserve jobs. But the resulting business operating system—rooted in the notion of teams knowing what’s really going on and possessing the authority and responsibility to introduce change and hold a stake in the outcome—is much more than just a set of templates and guiding principles. Unlike other approaches that focus primarily on planning disciplines and the needs of management, ours is a transformational approach to business that not only has the ability to grow businesses, but also to shape the lives and fortunes of its practitioners from the bottom to the top of any organization.
Granted, Great Game is not for everyone. But for those business leaders who are looking for true transformation; who understand the upside of an engaged staff; who fantasize about a business life in which others share the burdens often reserved for owners and executive staff; who view prosperity as a journey, not just an outcome, Great Game may just be the Aha! moment you’ve been looking for. Have you read The Great Game of Business book? This best seller is certainly foundational and a great place to start.
