Playing helping mini-games
Incentivize people to tap into the resources that exist in their network in order to solve complex business problems. For example, one company Wayne works with used a mini-game to reward their people for increasing the company’s social media activity.
Goals were set, rewards were offered, but as many of them didn’t know how to share posts or tweets, the game prompted them to ask for help from each other. As a result, not only did their social posting grow, but their ability to ask each other for help also improved considerably.
What assistance do you need right now, and who can you ask who might be able to help?
