The Fun Theory

The Fun Theory is a Volkswagen initiative dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or for something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better.

LeaderShape Comments

Along with over 15,500,000 others, John Knights of LeaderShape has watched this video:

Here he shares his views with you on its value for leaders:

  1. I want to tell you WHAT TO DO because that is how my default brain works but, even if I line-manage you, I know this approach probably won’t work and you may decide to ignore me.
  2. Instead of TELLING anyone to do anything, let’s make it fun! This brilliant video shows people choosing to do something they would not otherwise do – changing their behaviour – because they’ve been given a different framework to employ.
  3. It’s a creative approach, tapping into natural curiosity and inquisitiveness, so promoting learning. Neuroscience shows that the brain supports this and knowing how the brain learns is a key stage toward becoming a Transpersonal (beyond the ego…) Leader.
  4. Can leaders use their imagination to fire up the imaginations of others? Same old inputs, same old outputs. So, what can you do to change the culture, or motivate teams and staff for a particular project or for the longer term?
  5. The video demonstrates the power of PULL over PUSH.

We can show you how to use your leadership skills to get more from your people. You might want to give it a go, sometime!
John Knights
Chairman, LeaderShape
