How hot would it be to have your own dragons, especially if you could take those fire-breathing beasts to work?
Who would dare question your judgment, your work ethic or your annoying inclination to notice gaps in strategic plans — while everyone else nodded "yes" — with massive flying reptiles at your side?
Ah, dragons. They were all I could think about after Lou Barreiro, the content and strategy manager at Chicago Creative Space, made an unexpected link between HBO's Game of Thrones and your typical office.
The popular series, which broke its own audience record with the season 5 premiere last Sunday, revolves around several Houses all vying to become the supreme rulers of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.
"The intricate storylines that have captivated audiences worldwide are complex narratives that in some cases, believe it or not, come down to culture. While we hope your company is nothing like Westeros, there are definitely a few workplace culture lessons to be learned," Barreiro wrote on the company blog.
