Management Tip: Make Work More Like a Game

According to the Harvard Business Review blog, there’s a tip today to nod our heads in agreement.

Have you ever felt like when you’re doing a great job and your team is collaborating, you’re all winning? Well, along the lines of winning, the piece advises managers to instill more fun and excitement into the job so essentially it feels like a game.

What does this mean exactly? Managers should provide a “sharply focused, urgent goal and a very tight deadline.” Let’s say there’s actually a long-term goal instead. Well, in that case, managers should break it down into smaller more immediate goals. ┬áIf there’s a deadline in three months, break it down into two-week intervals.

The piece adds the endeavor should encourage creativity and managers should “celebrate successes along the way.”
