Gamification = Culture change
Gamification has the potential to shift the culture. It won’t happen overnight, but the key is to listen. Listen to your colleagues and build the gamification that supports the culture you want.
There is no ‘I’ in team.
Gamification is never about you, it is about the team. When envisioning a gamification, you think about what would interest your colleagues. How would you grab their interest? What do they need right now?
It is not for everyone.
Many people ask me, “What if no one plays along?” It is a great question! Listen Tiebreakers, gamification is not for everyone! I am not saying that everyone played my gamification. They didn’t; and, at first, I took it personally. Then, I realized, it is not for everyone. And, that is okay. My goal is always to reach at least one person. If I can do that, I call that a success.
