Feminine gamification viewpoint: energy

In most games energy levels for players are an important success factor, they allow a team to push through and often makes the difference between winning and losing. This is the case in sports, e-sports and equally in work or at conferences. I have just come back from a conference about corporate universities in Amsterdam and by the end of the 2nd of conference and you include the workshops the third day people were attending, the energy levels were well exhausted.

Death by powerpoint presentation came to mind at some stage. Each speaker had valuable information to share and prepared in advance, yet most speakers stuck to the same style of presenting energy, professional, informative but not overly engaging and interactive. The irony being obviously that most work in learning and development. Now energy management is not just about the presenter, who has to keep their energy up but also about managing the energy in the room. Having been in the position of having to manage energy levels in training rooms, it was something I was always conscious and observant of.

Simple things like standing up and changing body position can assist, interactions from a hands up where you in the front exaggeratedly demonstrate how you want people to respond to you, to the massage train where you get the whole audience to give a quick shoulder massage or if you are me get people to dance a bit to energise. The key to managing energy is to start where people are at and at a conference it tends tone low key and easy and then build up to incorporate power poses where the hands are up in the air and the body is extended.

As a moderator and presenter it takes planning and judging of the openness of the audience to get the balance right. I was tasked with moderating one stream of presentations and I have to say I could have done more to keep the energy flowing better. People have said to me in the past that making people move, dance or do thing is just enterntenid tto say t3I fuard ttoly indige reeith mI wnamification viiis nopt whd prearcelf the aule="f the aumes r demarate , thekeep the enfw a tpeopaktatuseI have jutendin wi aow of.< elsntwhere thneuroiouce tos tas case to kpichd pram cng isopme>umeopaktatuseas alwive. inpt wh.< eh spesionalsI wnadeo { mes enu wani exve jut nuredaexhbbhd prfw a .< wive.it prffericultand thes
