Does your job suck the life out of you? Has it become boring and “all work and no play?” What if your boss told you that you could play video games instead of preparing the tedious TPS report? Believe it or not…companies are allowing their employees to play games such as World of Warcraft, Everquest and Eve Online. Though these fantasy games are just that, in many ways they resemble the business landscape and open a window to the future of real-world business leadership. These games require strategic decision-making, team building and leadership in order to progress to the higher levels of play, which can translate to fit real-world corporate contexts. Dr. Tony O’Driscoll, Professor of the Practice of Business Administration at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, shares with Human Resources IQ how gaming can change how leaders function tomorrow and make them more effective today.
