Getting and keep ourselves and others motivated at work is essential.

Now, more than ever. Distributed teams and working from home became the norm for many. The question is, how can we stay motivated?

This is an issue that game designers seem to have cracked a long time ago.
In this session, we will dive into the fundamentals of gamifying and how it can be used in the workplace.

Together with Ya-kai Chou, TEDx speaker, Gamification pioneer, and author of the bestseller “Actionable Gamification” – we will have a look at the OCTALYSIS framework and get an introduction what practices we can apply to help ourselves and others stay motivated – despite our new work from home lifestyle.
