Games enable teams to rehearse skills in communication, leadership & problem solving. Creativity isn’t a natural talent; it’s a skill that must be practiced. Stretching your imagination is difficult to do with deadlines and consequences; games help to exercise your innovation.
Games allow people to test audacious ideas in a risk-free environment. Problems that are difficult to overcome in real life become a fun challenge in a game scenario. Games give your team the tools they need to switch their mindset when a problem seems insurmountable.
Games help to create a culture of trust and joviality. Members of a close-knit team bring their problems to one another early and deal with them in a positive way, rather than letting them fester. When people are committed to teamwork, the workplace operates more smoothly, problems are resolved more quickly, conflict is less likely to turn toxic, and output is greater.
Workplace culture is one of the top 3 reasons employees choose a new job. Keep your staff engaged and maintain your reputation as a great place to work.
