If you've read the book The Great Game of Business, you're probably asking yourself, "Is The Game for real? Can it really produce rapid financial results and lasting cultural change?"
The answer is YES; and for more than 30 years, we've been sharing our proven operating system for educating, empowering and engaging employees at all levels of the company with business people all around the world.
Companies that play The Great Game of Business invest in their associates to make sure everyone understands the language of business and what the numbers mean on the financial reports shared in Huddles. Additionally, they give their teams the tools to know how they impact the numbers. So why shouldn't employees play The Game in their home life?
If business is preparing for a downturn in the economy, organizations should be educating their employees on how to prepare to not only survive an economic downturn, but how to thrive in their personal life. If employees have financial peace in their personal life, they will make better decisions at work and be much more productive than employees who are stressed out about their finances.
BONUS: there will be an inline Train-the-Trainer thread throughout the workshop to give those tasked with teaching this topic the tools they need to present.
Cover these Topics:
Participants will leave the workshop with not only a plan on how to improve their finances, but also the inspiration to act on it!
The CEO Summit brings together the leaders of Great Game practitioners for inspiration, insights, and meaningful, problem-solving discussions.

Participants will learn how to apply the principles from Ann Rhoades' books, Built on Values; Creating an Enviable Culture that Outperforms the Competition.
This interactive workshop is designed to give participants the tools to develop a Values-Based Culture. Participants will leave with an action plan to create a “culture by design” for their organization.
Instruction, discussion and activities will focus on:
Critical leadership beliefs and characteristics are present in all great open-book leaders—leadership characteristics that support the leadership system and give it authenticity and momentum. If these characteristics are not present in your leaders of The Game, the system may not reach its full potential and may be at risk of failing.
Is leadership different in a Great Game organization?
40 years of experience says YES.
Leading in a Great Game organization requires you to reflect on not only your style of leadership but also on how you will develop others as your organization grows. It all begins with a genuine belief in people and in fostering mutual respect and trust.
Join Great Game Executive Trainer Michele Bridges for a half-day deep dive exploring how leadership is built, brick by brick. Discover how shared beliefs play into effective leadership, learn about the four main characteristics of successful Great Game leaders, and explore how to master Jack Stack’s Four Pillars of Leadership.
Key takeaways include exercises to evaluate your leadership environment, and a comprehensive guide to leadership development.
Communication is hard. It is not only important to know how you like to communicate, but crucial to understand how others like to communicate.
Have you ever wondered why you get along better with some coworkers than others? Are you wanting to understand those you work with better?
Today's consumers are savvy and sophisticated. They seek genuine interactions and reject any attempts at manipulation to meet sales quotas.
This won't be your traditional sales training workshop filled with tired closing tactics and out-of-touch ABC mentality. It's nearly 2024, and it's time we adapt our sales techniques to connect effectively with today's empowered consumers. The ever-changing economic landscape demands that we let go of strategies from three years ago, as they no longer hold true in today's dynamic market.
In this workshop, we'll emphasize treating customers as respected equals and engaging in authentic conversations. Say goodbye to the old notion of "closing" deals, and open your mind to the powerful concept of DPIs and understanding your unique Sales DNA. By adopting principles from the Great Game of Business, we'll bring excitement, meaning and maybe even a little fun to the sales process, making it enjoyable for both you and your customers.
