The Elevator Game

The Elevator

Would you like to excel at your job? Why don’t you give this game a try?

The Elevator is a game which offers an easy structured simulation with a wide range of realistic dilemmas that may occur in modern organizations. The student begins the game, and consequently his/her career from an entry level position at a fictitious company which should be the company of your dreams.
Students will have to face different situations, ethical issues and they will have to make their own decisions and see how their performance leads them to climb the hierarchy at work or not. An excellent performance could mean that a top management position could be reached in the organization and why not become the CEO of the company. Is this one of your challenges?
Many students have already played the game an it fosters the class discussion on the Organizational Behaviour courses of our Master Programmes. Furthermore, we have also launched a Facebook app so everybody is free to play The Elevator.

One of our outstanding visitor teachers in Leadership, Mark Fritz, has collected his “daily thoughts” for IE Business School in this weekly newsletter Food For Thought

With more of 25 years of international experience in Management, Prof. Fritz  is also the author of Time to Get Started, a compilation of the best of his Daily Thoughts and  of The Truth About Getting Things Done, 42 Truths that combines the best from both time management and motivation books, and provides you with practical ideas and insights that enable you to take action from today





Personal Development

“I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.”  Abraham Lincoln

Learning Every Day

You are never too old to stop learning, and we should all look to learn

something new every day. I had read a number of years ago that a great

question to ask your children each night is: “What did you learn at school


 Let’s ask the question of ourselves: What have I learned today? 

Leadership Development

“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you.” Max DePree

Thank You

Saying “Thank You” is important for leaders. Thank you shows that you

appreciated what your people have done. That appreciation helps your people to develop pride in their work, and pride is one of the best motivators of performance.

Thank you – two words with magical powers.

Team & Organisational Development

“No matter what accomplishments you make, somebody helped you.”  Althea Gibson

Team – it’s all about Helping each other

You can spot a successful team in minutes. It’s the team with members that

are always trying to help each other, and you see it in the behaviours of

everyone. They are asking each other questions and sharing ideas with each

other all the time.

How much have you helped your team members this past week?

Something for Fun

“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” Groucho Marx

Is accounting really boring?-By William Brighenti

I’ve noticed on Twitter a bunch of tweets from younger people complaining that accounting is boring. This may very well be true for those who are not accountants. Non-accountants include those individuals who once loved accounting until they took intermediate accounting in college and then switched their major to marketing, a much less challenging discipline. I suspect that they are the main culprits spreading this libelous fiction on Twitter (and, by implication, that CPAs are nerds, but that is an entirely different libelous fiction, for which we in class action intend to sue).
There are two schools of thought as to why some individuals, when stroking a debit or a credit, experience ecstasy and others vomit before suffering a cardiac arrest. Studies assert that CPAs love accounting because of the presence of a gene that non-CPAs lack. They based their findings on a series of tests of 100 CPAs, who both sweated and salivated while debiting and crediting. On the other hand, the Freudianists argue that there is no such gene; rather, they argue one’s love or hatred of accounting stems from early childhood experiences, basing their argument on Freud’s theory found in his “Pleasure Principle”, which asserts that anyone experiencing ecstasy while reading tomes of FASBs, GAASs, Regs, Codes, etc., must have experienced in early childhood both the Electra and the Oedipal complexes. As we all know, Freud himself was a very confused, sad, miserable human being, which explains why he was such an excellent accountant.
Initially I believed that Pleasure Principle theory accounted for my love life in college. Women I dated in college lapsed into comas, never to be heard from again. Frankly, I found that behavior strange, if not downright rude. That phenomenon puzzled me for a very long while, thinking it was due to my cologne. But then one night while I was reading a passage from FASB 8 on a date at the drive-in, it occurred to me—after feeling a draft coming from the passenger side of the car as a result of its door being left wide open—that perhaps not everyone shared my passion for accounting. And I was right!
It was then that I came to the realization that our love or hatred for accounting stemmed not from any Freudian psychoanalytic theory but rather our genetic code. I reached the conclusion that either you’ve got the good genes or you don’t. If you’ve got the good genes, you definitely love accounting and would never, ever find it boring. If you don’t have the good genes, you will always find accounting and accountants boring.
