Storytelling.... Do We Really Want This Much Emotion in the Workplace?

We are wired to think in stories. A story is a connection of cause and effect. We think in narratives all day long, no matter if it is about buying a new laptop, thinking of the rapidly approaching project deadline, or dinner with our kids, we make up stories in our heads for every action and conversation.

The gamification of learning is more than just building games into learning. It is a systematic process of using strategies that are based on the principles of good game design. A well-designed and well-implemented training and development program promotes engagement, meaning, mastery, and autonomy.

Training should not be just about delivering facts. Studies show that learners comprehend and retain more through stories. Storytelling in training allows us to connect to the learner on an emotional level.

And that is what this program is about -Let’s play!

You don’t have to start with a blank page. Use one of the story writing models in the The Gamification Starter Kit - Level 2 is a FREE Sample Lesson, a public domain story, or try Rory’s Story Cubes for a whole new twist on story writing.
