At the core of every business is people, and the people in your organization can make or break your plans. At The Great Game of Business® first and foremost we believe that it begins with the genuine belief in people and in fostering mutual respect and trust. Great Game™ companies believe:
Why is this important? Great Game™ companies are on a collaborative mission to change 10 million lives in 10 years by closing the gap between the haves and have-nots.
Regardless if you have been in business six months or 30 years, everywhere you look there is a business operating system vying for your attention. There are systems for leadership, systems for planning, systems for employee management, systems to help you with your finances...the opportunities are endless. It is probably safe to say that you have tried at least one in your business career. Giving you a list of reasons The Great Game of Business® is different and pointing out that Great Game replaces all those other operating systems may help you understand the excitement we see every day from companies practicing The Great Game of Business as their primary operating system, but why do that when we can show you!
“The Great Game of Business helps me to understand everyone's role in the business and ways I can make an impact. When one of the Goodall Homes values is teaching everyone to be a business owner, I feel like the use of GGOB makes me feel like I am being invested in and continuously growing as an employee. Understanding how the business functions motivates me to excel or persevere in different market climates in order for the business to succeed.”
~ Ariel Scharpen, Architecture Coordinator
“GGOB has made our company more of a family company. We have completely changed direction and it has made our employees more engaged and more eager to help SuperSuds grow.”
~ Mary Tuggle, General Manager
“It has made working a lot of fun and the learning of new things and functions is great.”
~ Chris Manetta, Service Tech
“Communication at work makes my life outside of work much clearer in terms of separating both. If you work for a company that is not communication friendly, you will wonder outside of work hours if what you're doing matters, or if your opinion counts. By Malco utilizing The Great Game of Business, it makes it easier for all associates to understand their role and feel better that we're all in this together and we do count.”
~ Scott Friese, Graphic Designer
We get it! The Great Game of Business is not for everyone. It takes a mindset of systemic change to make an impactful shift in business. Without the buy-in from everyone, it is hard to turn around an ocean liner.
"If you're skeptical about The Great Game of Business, welcome to the club. I myself was one of the biggest disbelievers in the beginning. There is a story in the book, The Great Game of Business: The Only Sensible Way to Run a Company, about an hourly worker, a young lady, whose introduction to The Game resulted in the elimination of her job as well as the demise of a product line. That young lady was me, Denise Bredfelt, former Director of Research and Transmission Rebuilder for SRC, and I have been known to be less than quiet and mild-mannered when things don't go the way I want. If you think SRC didn't have their hands full teaching me The Game, think again!
Is it hype? As a converted disbeliever who has played The Game from hourly to managerial ranks over the years, it's hype to the point to get you interested. After that, IT REALLY WORKS!
In fact, The Game touches everyone in a different way. There are many stories at SRC about what changed the disbelievers into believers, one by one. It would be difficult to find two people who were swayed by the same circumstances, And yet, overall, The Game serves to unite us as a corporation, sometimes against foes many times larger, allowing us to survive in this wild economy. At the same time, The Game gives us the means to challenge ourselves internally and create friendly competitions between departments. Along the way, we even have fun, and there is laughter in the halls."
~ Denise Bredfelt, The Original Doubter
