GAMIFICATION FAQS

What is Gamification?
NOUN   Pronunciation:  \gā-mə-fə-ˈkā-shən\

Gamification is about motivational design and is the process of using game mechanics and game thinking in non-gaming contexts to engage users and to solve problems.

Gamification is founded in the fundamentals of human psychology and behavioral science, and rests on three primary factors: motivation, ability level and triggers.

Gamification is not about simply rewarding points and badges, but rather understanding and influencing the human behaviors which companies want to encourage among their employees and customers. Gamification includes a robust set of game mechanics including chance, competition, collaboration, knowledge sharing, badges, points, leaderboards, status, achievement, exploration, teamwork and so much more.

Just for Women

Having risen to the top in a male dominated field, Monica thinks back often to the advice she received from her dad when she was in 7th grade, “BE DIFFERENT!” My dad called that SIZZLE and would always tell me, “Find your sizzle in life and develop it. Your sizzle gives you strength and sets you apart from the rest. Don’t listen to anyone who says you need to change to fit into their preconceived mold — go in and give it all you’ve got, and make a difference.”

Throughout her career, Monica has proven that hard work, determination, intelligence and (sometimes) thick-skin can help women rise to the top – and they can even do it while having a family. As a result, she has earned widespread respect not just for her accomplishments as a woman, but for her accomplishments, period.

Monica continues to make a difference and speaks to women’s groups frequently. Her quick-wit and sense of humor shine through as she, with compassion and confidence, shares her message that women can compete and perform on the same level as the big boys.
