Gamification and leadership experience
Can applying game elements and principles to organisational change, leadership, training and work life help us to change in a way that is swift, fun and rewarding?
The need to learn fast, change fast, become more creative and be an inspiring leader is stronger than ever before. A gigantic challenge that, associated with the high complexity and lack of people’s engagement, causes way too many change projects to fail.
One of the most powerful drivers of engagement is intrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation happens when you do something simply because you like it and not because you are forced to do it or because you are bribed with rewards. By leveraging on intrinsic motivation, we could definitely increase the chances of success of our projects – but how?
Games like football, Candy Crush, Pokémon GO, Monopoly and chess are so widespread and popular because they trigger intrinsic motivation. That is why people of all ages can be absorbed in game activities for hours – even days.
Imagine the impact it would create if this motivational power could be transferred from something we most often experience in our free time into being an integrated part of our professional lives.
In today’s fast-changing business environment, leaders must reflect and adapt their leadership style to market requirements on an ongoing basis. Games can offer a fun and safe environment to simulate certain leadership challenges, practice various leadership approaches and prototype new leadership behaviour. Our experience shows that engagement and performance levels in leadership significantly increase after a gamified leadership meeting. Furthermore, leaders will be enabled to use these new tools of gamification with their teams and even make it part of daily business operations.
