Playing tabletop RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons or Pathfinder thankfully doesn't carry the same stigma it once did. That's great because as this TEDx talk explains, the game can do a lot to help you in real life.
As you grow your small business you will naturally want to recruit new people into your company. That changes the workplace dynamic and it can be a challenge to keep everybody motivated, especially when the going gets tough.

Last week, we visited Mission Escape Games (MEG) in Sydney to partake in a "puzzle game simulator". This involved finding and solving various clues to escape a series of locked, interconnected rooms in under an hour. While strongly geared towards entertainment, the game is also a valuable team-building exercise that can reveal a surprising amount about your employees or workmates. Who has the strongest leadership qualities? Who is the least capable of cooperating? Who is likely to crack under pressure? The answer is likely to be found in MEG's dimly-lit rooms.
