Game articles

Games are one of a set of social rituals which we repeatedly play out, often with dysfunctional ends. As with anything on this site, if you can understand them, you can respond rather than react to them.

Common games

There are many games that we play. Here are some common ones which it is useful to understand and manage.

And...

Games happen often in organizational situations and get played out on the political stage.

So what?

See the games being played and understand what's going on under the surface. Either play out the script or break it. You can also initiate and play games on purpose.
