Posted by Hopeton on December 5, 2008

Kevin Carroll, author of The Red Rubber Ball at Work: Elevate Your RRB@Work_CoverGame Through the Hidden Power of Play, discussed how to apply the same skills we used as kids when we played to promote innovation, results, teamwork, leadership, and curiosity in the workplace on the December 8 edition of Economic Perspectives.  To listen to the interview click here.

According to Carroll, activities we played in our childhood were far from frivolous time, but rather were productive (even if as kids we did not realize it). Activities we called soccer, marbles, doubledutch, and tag were also excersizes in resourcesfullness, planning, strategy, design, decision making, creativity, and risk taking.
