From solo players to teams using gamification and positive psychology!
Are your employees not motivated to do their work? Is the performance of your team stagnating, even though they have the skills you were looking for? Does your team seem to not be able to work as…a team?
What if the answer lies in considering the character strengths in your team instead of only assessing their technical competences? What if there was a method to identify and match the people in your team in a way that guarantees they can work together? And what if you could take that even further by developing a playful environment for your team to be happy and motivated to come to work every day, boosting their productivity from within?!
Tap into the secrets of positive psychology and gamification by working with experts in optimal human functioning, motivation and growth and transform your working environment into a playground where teams thrive!
Positive Psychology is a “scientifically-rooted approach, helping individuals, groups and communities increase well-being, enhance and apply strengths, improve performance and achieve valued goals”.
Gamification stands for “applying game-design elements and game principles in non-game contexts”. My colleague Antonis Triantafyllakis has been studying and using gamification in the field of learning and development for the past two years. With a background that combines over a decade of experience in youth work with design, stage performance and IT, he can ensure a holistic, playful and impactful approach to training, easily adaptable to your needs. He founded MYTRAINER to combine his passion for experiential learning and gamification, and assist people to develop skills for the 21st century.
