Paul Levy gives a great talk at Google based on examples from his book Goal Play. Anybody in a leadership role should watch this and I particularly like his example of normalisation of deviance.

I came across this very cool variant of Tetris which replaces the blocks with European countries. I think this is a great learning tool and was impressed with Schmitz’s ability.
