Can Virtual leaders really show the way forward in the future of real-world business leadership?

I’m doing a business dissertation on the above topic as I have become increasingly excited by the power of games technology particularly looking at massively multi-player online role playing games and how this can develop people’s skills with regards to leadership and teamwork and I am inspired by the thought of whether it is possible to harness this into our real life workplaces.

All results gathered from this blog will be purely used for my research purposes only.

There are many massively multiplayer online role playing games that get played worldwide by millions of people. To progress in this type of game requires the player to be highly skilled, have incredible determination and be a good team player or natural leader. But can the skills needed to progress in these online role playing games be adopted into the real life workplace. So can they provide opportunities for people to learn how to manage small groups, how to coordinate and cooperate with people and how to participate in sociable interaction with them.

Therefore it might be worth thinking about whether there is a potential of using games as a training or development tool for improving the ability of high performing teams and realising the potential of leaders.

Just think how ordinary people have grasped the power of technology as part of their social interaction and personal pleasure for entertainment and think how this will continue into the future. So perhaps this level of focus and skill could be transferred into the workplace.

Its thought provoking isn’t it? Can u think of applications where this could be used within your own workplace?
