“Reality TV: Outwit — Outplay — Outlast is todays Stanford Prison Experiment.”
“Survivor” isn’t really about enduring life on a deserted beach, “The Bachelor” isn’t about marriage, & ”The Amazing Race” leaves little time to appreciate any amazing cultures. These ruthless racing, singing & cooking shows are this generation’s ‘Stanford Prison Experiment’. They are not team building neither do they build any sustainable collaboration. The fake reality of ‘Team Building’ disguised in the concept of a “competitive race” and often trumpeted through the genre of contemporary Reality TV needs to be challenged. Corporate teams need to look at the alternatives and unpack the real concept of collaboration, so it becomes a constructive, more meaningful, and actionable metaphor that enables sustainable innovation.
