/clap well done. You may say that people do that all the time in WOW – and your right they do – I wonder if anyone has done a survey on the real life jobs for Raiding Guild GM’s / or Raid Leaders
Are they Management – and if they aren’t should they be? They have been hiding their skillz!
Not all GM’s/Raid Leaders are great raid leaders but in the real world results are what counts. Do they get the Job done.
If the boss is down Yes –
But can they do it next time.. Thats the Farm test..
If you Google words such as Management – Gaming – Leadership Skills – Online you not only will you find articles on how Businesses are now looking at Role Playing games and activitys to increase Skills and Training of Staff – You will also find Articles like this Wired 14.04 How Stephen Gillett got his job – Yes I know the article is from 2006 – but its still applicable – Accidental Learning
on a related Note: I have a Magic Macro that Wins BG’s in AB – Its a basic g1 to GM ect.. ect.. but I have it tool barred in AB – and I spam it once if there is time, and if I get a positive response, will do it again for the people who have logged in since and then we are off.. My action is a simple leadership / organisation task and it improves the chances of a Win – Yes they are generic commands, but it focus’s resources – and more often it acheives at least an intial 3 cap result – and then the fun begins..
