In business, there are often fears of litigation, protecting one’s intellectual property, closely guarding those rule changes that everyone once freely shared as kids with their playmates. Playground running has been replaced by bright fluorescent lights and safety protocols around the office. Comfortable, loose-fitting clothing replaced by tailored slacks, shirts, and suits, and business shoes. The once free reign everyone had to call out changes and suggestions have been replaced by a suggestion form on the company’s intranet, and the decision to go home when you felt like is now frowned upon in many business positions audience members may find themselves in, finding peers shaking their heads and making comments about a lack of work ethic under their breath.
Enter Deryck Richardson! Folks, if you’re looking for a guest to change the game and offer some brand new, disrupting concepts in business success and employee satisfaction, look no further than our next guest, Deryck Richardson! His new business playbook, “Go Play: The Ultimate Road Map to Winning the Game of Life” (ISBN 978-1628656794 by Authors Place Press Available on Kindle Unlimited and $19.95 as a Paperback) is an inspiring book on motivation and mindset. As a child, the audience was likely taught to “Go Play!” Think about that! No instructions are needed to figure out how to get this done. Games are made up on-the-fly, new rules can be added at any time to change the way things are if games become stale, and everyone works as teams to achieve objectives and have a lot of fun doing it! So then, why, as adults, do we make things so difficult?
