CEO to CEO: Game Theory Pt. 2

CEO to CEO: Game Theory Pt. 2

In Game Theory Part I, we talked about how and why every challenge in life constitutes “a game.”  Seeing the problem as a game reminds us that there are rules which apply, there are strategies and tactics to winning, skill is developed through intelligent practice, good practice lies within the context of grasping the fundamentals and their applicable functions, winning is consistently achievable through application of skill and resources within the appropriate scope and setting, and—perhaps most of all—we approach the challenge with hope and joy because games are fun!

CEO to CEO: Interviewing BCBAs
