Today’s workforce faces unprecedented change and stress. Study after study shows that resilience is the single most important trait that employees can develop to be successful. Learn how the surprising idea of using the science behind games can increase resilience, motivation, creativity, teamwork, and optimism. It’s no wonder that half of Americans regularly play games – and more than 2/3 of CEOs admitted to playing games at work because it made them feel more productive.
Our second session features Jane McGonigal, PhD, of the Institute of the Future; New York best selling author of Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World and SuperBetter: The Power of Living Gamefully. Jane is an award winning game designer and inventor of SuperBetter which has helped nearly a million people adopt a gameful mindset to tackle real-life challenges and increase their resilience.
Join us to learn how to harness the power of play and achieve epic wins, both inside and outside of the workplace.
