The Game of Work
Charles Coonradt is the author of the book The Game of Work. Coonradt had an epiphany one day when he watched how engaged and excited people were when playing basketball on a work break. His thought was why couldn’t this same model be applied to work? Coonradt created a methodology for increasing productivity through making work a game. He incorporated important lessons from sports and games, complete with feedback, scorekeeping, goal setting, coaching, choice, and accountability.
Coonradt talks with Brad Baldwin about the creation of his business — also called The Game of Work, entrepreneurship, and a new book released in July 2007, The Better People Leader.
