Overview: Game development leaders need to provide interaction and fun in order to engage game developers. How can you bring more interaction and fun to your leadership? By learning from those who build interaction and fun full-time: game designers. Learn how to 'gamify' your leadership so your colleagues have more fun, become more engaged, and tell more people what an awesome leader you are! Scott will explore questions such as: What are key human needs that games deliver well, and how can you do the same? What's a game-like way to get someone 'addicted' to your leadership? What do power-ups and badges have to do with people engaging with your goals? How does playing help learning? How can you 'gamify' your leadership even if you aren't a game designer?

Come to this session and walk away with the answersand a big smile on your face!
