Does your business feel chaotic – like you’re always putting out fires? Experience something greater

The Great Game of Business is a growth system designed to build healthier companies, better businesses, and better lives. We use streamlined processes to get workforce cultures engaged with company’s financial goals. Over the past 40 years we’ve learned the best way to grow a business is to educate everyone in the business on what’s most vital to the company’s success and how each person in the organization can play a role in reaching that success.

Become Immersed in The Great Game of Business by going to the place where it all began.

Immerse yourself in the Great Game of Business with this three-day, hands-on experience in Springfield, MO, featuring a look inside the Living Lab (SRC) and other Great Game practitioners. Through interactive people tours, employee and executive panels, a live Huddle (company-wide meeting where employees forecast financials), educational sessions, and pre- and post-workshop collaboration meetings, you will SEE and FEEL the power of The Game.

As a workshop participant, you will be assigned a Mentor to guide you through the experience, and will gain a host of connections and resources along the way, as well as actionable takeaways to immediately implement. Get a deep dive into the “Why” and highlights of “How” when you see the Game in action at the birthplace of open-book management.
