Followup is the key to improving teamwork and results – a poem

The Jeep causes teams to creep. But discovery of a Turbocharger allows that jeep to go twice as fast / twice as far. Turbos are best practices that enable people to dramatically improve performance results, so we include them in The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine as a resource that teams can choose to share if they want to. Sometimes they do, which builds overall results, and sometimes they don’t, which seemingly allows them a competitive advantage.

Our goal is to generate discussion about possibilities.

LD Jeep causes creep Turbo poem and followup question

So, we use this illustration as a vehicle to stimulate discussion about the choices that people are making after playing the game and returning to their workplaces.

Followup is one of the keys to generating behavioral change and long-term improvement.


For the FUN of It!
