"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

In his book, 'Unleashing Genius, with the World's Most Powerful Learning Systems', Dilip Mukerjea writes:

"The ancient Greeks had a word for the concept of 'education' ~ it was paideia.

One letter short, their concept for 'play' was paidia.

When play is infused into education, learning becomes fun and natural."

Dilip & I believe that when play is infused into the corporate landscape, learning becomes fun & natural too.

Interestingly, we have come across that 'play' often ignites creative sparks in the corporate landscape.

However, since our left-brained corporate culture frowns upon 'play' in the workplace, the big boys have coined an apt term, 'Serious Games', for it.

According to IBM, "one study found that a great lecture can improve learning by 17%, but serious games can improve learning by 108%!"
