FreshBiz shakes up SherlockTech
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you put all your management and staff in the same room and asked them to play Monopoly against each other? If you think it would be like putting Habanero chillies and Wasabi into a blender and garnishing it with dynamite – you’d be right!
Led by Clare Merlo of Merlo Coaching, the management and staff of SherlockTech were locked in the back room of a North Miami Beach restaurant to face off against each other in a few rounds of the thought provoking coaching game FreshBiz.
“As our team continues to grow we are always on the lookout for alternative ‘Team Building’ activities–we chose to book a Game-based workshop led by Clare.” said Alex Funkhouser, President SherlockTech.
“Clare suggested we focus on ‘Entrepreneurial Thinking’ guided by the entertaining FreshBiz board game.”
The FreshBiz game is a great tool for developing and highlighting entrepreneurial thinking. S. Earle E2Marketing

What is gamification? Why is it important?
According to Brian Burke* of Gartner, Inc., when designed correctly, gamification has proven to be very successful in engaging people and motivating them to change behaviors, develop skills or solve problems. Leveraging some of the features used in real games, gamification can turn many other types of activities into games.
Gamification is currently being used at the following companies: Nike built the Nike+ platform to engage fitness enthusiasts to take their workouts to the next level. Khan Academy uses gamification to enhance the learning experience for students. Quirky uses gamification to crowdsource ideas from inventors for product development.
FreshBiz workshops however are different, they operate at a different level. Playing an actual game, participants begin to understand how they operate, how they show up in their everyday lives. Through this realization, change can occur. People start to think more broadly, taking advantages of their opportunities in an experiential, positive way.
