The Only Sensible Way to Run a Company
Featuring Steve Baker, with lessons from Jack Stack
- Are you struggling to engage and empower your employees?
- Do your Millennials have you perplexed and bewildered?
- Do you have the right key business metrics in place to get results and keep people accountable?
Come and join us for The Great Game of Business and learn how to:
- Build a winning team that drives business results
- Create a line of sight between team actions and your company's strategic goals
- Encourage employees to work together so that everyone succeeds!
The Great Game's approach to running a company was developed to help close one of the biggest gaps in business: the gap between managers and employees. What lies at the heart of The Game is a very simple proposition: The best, most efficient, most profitable way to operate a business is to give everybody in the company a voice in saying how the company is run and a stake in the financial outcome, good or bad.
Our real business is education. We teach people about business and give employees the knowledge and tools to help them understand:
- What winning means in business
- How to track, measure and improve performance and
- How to share in a self-funding stake in the outcome…to win or lose as a team.
Our ultimate goal is to create a “business of business people” who think, act and feel like owners. Open-book management is one of the key components of our approach, though it is only a portion of our overall process.
RSVP ASAP as this event has sold out the last several years!
And – as always – if you know someone that may be interested in learning more about us or could benefit from this discussion, please bring them along. I look forward to seeing you on November 3rd!
