Squid Game: Lessons Property Managers Can Learn from the Games

Editor's note: SPOILERS ahead. Don't read if you haven't finished Squid Game, or if you think you might want to watch in the future. 

Squid Game is an absolute global phenomenon. The South Korean series is on track to become the most streamed Netflix showever. And, rightfully so. It is timely, a parable to modern life and crazy entertaining. I, personally, like to think of Squid Game as the new Tiger King, in that everyone is totally obsessed with it, it feels very much like a product of the times, and I feel like an absolute lunatic when I try to describe the plot to my parents.

Property managers can learn a lot from Squid Game. 

Even though it might seem like Squid Game is an overnight sensation, Hwang Dong-hyuk wrote the show in 2009 and was rejected by studios for 10 years

So, believe in yourself, work hard and never give up.

Obviously.

But you can also learn a lot from the six games the contestants are forced to play.

Again, spoiler alert! Major spoilers below!

Here's what property managers can learn from the Squid Game games. 

Red Light Green Light: In this game of Red Light, Green Light, the first players run through, making light-hearted bets about who will get to the end first. Until the weird robot doll calls red light and snipers gun down the moving players. Lesson for property managers: Some tasks might seem embarrassingly simple or childish or "below you." But that doesn't mean you shouldn't take them seriously. For example, you might have residents constantly complaining about their upstairs making noise. You might have "more important" things to work on. But if the resident is constantly unhappy, they might move out. It doesn't matter if you don't think the issue is a big deal—it's your job to resolve it.

You've created a conundrum for me. Now I want to watch, but that means I can't read the rest of your post! Better go binge and come back.
