I had the privilege to perform and present with 3x Pro Bowler Todd Gurley from the Los Angeles Rams (middle) & Super Bowl Champ Malcolm Mitchell from the New England Patriots (right) in Atlanta a few weeks ago. We talked about the importance of making things enjoyable, even though they might be hard at first.
"Edu-tainment" is critical nowadays. What does this mean? It's the concept of "educating through entertainment".
What type of culture are you building within your team environment?
Are you having meetings where people need a few cups of coffee in order to stay awake while listening?
Or are you integrating an atmosphere where people are having fun while learning at the same time?
Play a quick game of Pictionary before you "officially" start your next meeting. It will get people in a fun mood right off the bat and you will see a dramatic shift of engagement when you have to start "talking business".
