What Game of Thrones teaches us about business…

In our companies, most, if not all of us, are huge Game of Thrones fans. Everything from the marketing gimmicks to the content of the show can ignite a healthy conversation about what may or may not happen or what is right or wrong about the show.

One such conversation led to something very interesting, the discussion somehow veered from being about how Game of Thrones is the show to how there is a lot to learn and implement in our daily business and while running events.

A lot of points were raised out of which we manage to list down 5 things which we can relate to business:

Never Stop Learning

It can help you to constantly add value to your own skill before your clients.We live in a world packed with ideas and if you do not innovate, you won’t survive.

Keep your partners close

By creating a network and partnerships with people within the industry, it allows one to offer a far bigger plethora of services. Also playing by each other’s strengths can deliver the best results.

Always keep your word

Business is dynamic and unexpected expenses can raise the costs. Sticking to your word after you have already quoted, even if it means a small operational loss, can go a long way in establishing you as a trustworthy, reliable business and can help with client retention.

Remembering where it all began is very important, as that is the foundation which the entire business is built upon.

Be Ruthless 

There is no prize for second place in business, you either close a contract or you do not. Either way within the boundaries of orderly and ethical conduct, nothing you do to swing the deal your way can be held against you.

It is fun to relate what we do to the points we have mentioned above if for nothing else, just the energy it helps add to the work environment and how much our people relate to it.
