Revenue Accelerator with Jessica Creane
A play is a fictional work that can be viewed or heard at a theater, television, or the radio. Plays are intriguing because they can be interpreted in numerous ways. Jessica Creane uses Play to investigate complicated climate change, ethics, chaos, and team dynamics. In this episode of The Revenue Accelerator Podcast, Jessica describes her tactics for executing these plays that influence everyone personally.
All about Plays
Play is sometimes ignored as an essential part of the process. Having fun, especially in business, is sometimes considered taboo or harmful. Nobody has fun doing what they like. We play games because we don't know what's ahead. It has a beautiful aspect of mystery about it. It's disconcerting when we're in that environment, which is similar to the real world. Sometimes, the stakes are slight, but the risk is high.
Life as a simulation
We play various roles in our lives, and we sometimes embrace them, and sometimes we don't. However, knowing the advantage and restrictions of the parts we're playing at any particular time allows us to make more robust and intriguing decisions within those roles.
Roles frequently imply permanency, as if you are this rather than trying it on. It is an experiment, you get to make choices within this framework, and you may exit at any time. There are all of these other roles you can try on, and you can merge them. Thus, there is this sensation of having to be someone or achieving a definite mark, but everything is continually altering in reality.
Variations of Games
There is a common fallacy that games always have win states, which implies constantly losing states. And it doesn't have to be that way; there are plenty of games that don't function that way. There are games that we play for the sake of playing. We play to keep playing, to find a new way to be playful to engage, learn, and change. Games give us a transformative space. Be comfortable enough with the unknown of what comes next, be excited about it, and trust ourselves and the people we're with to find our way.
It's always beneficial to be open and honest, to have another set of eyes. Ask yourself, "What are the guidelines you're now following?" Do you agree with them? Do you want to follow this set of rules? There will always be integration and bridging space in that area. There's an issue of how to open the door for those kinds of dialogues, work culture, what a product will be, and how that product will communicate with others. It's advantageous when you're developing or changing the rules by which a group operates.
If you nerd out on analytics, there are sophisticated and basic solutions that are incredibly fascinating for many people. The most straightforward approach is to start a single experiment. Choose one character that you play in life and build a list of gaming roles for yourself.
