Business, Politics and Education are all INFINITE games (Very long term). To play this game the following are required
- A Just Cause
- Courageous Leadership
- Trusting Team
- A worthy Rival
- A Flexible Play-book
In the infinite game there are no winners and no losers, just those in the game and those that drop out because they cannot keep playing.
If ONE of these is missing there will be a slide into a FINITE game (short term – Winner/Loser).
Simon Sinek explains the how to stay in the infinite game – It is fairly obvious in today’s Geopolitical landscape which Politicians are confused over which game they are in – so not succeeding in either. Plus they are missing a few (all?) of the requirements to even be in the infinite game! I have included a shorter version (2nd click) if time is a constraint .
