    Level 2 Gamification Certification

    Blended Virtual Course Offering!

    April 10 - May 18


    Learn from the #1 rated Gamification Guru Monica Cornetti and become a better, higher-rated, and considerably more effective trainer, teacher, instructional designer, or human resource professional!

You will explore AND apply game mechanics (such as points, levels, challenges, rewards, chance, collaboration) linked to core human desires such as power, status, relationships, autonomy, progress, mastery, and purpose.

    By the end of this 12-hour certification program, through our proven reverse engineering process, you will be able to map the Sententia Gamification Design Framework to a case study, assess best practices, and demonstrate applied competence in the application of gamification strategy design to a talent development case study.

    It’s likely this looks NOTHING LIKE the world you are in!

    Once upon a time, learners:

    1.  Attended full-week workshops.
    2. They had others who backed them up so they could be fully focused on the learning.
    3. When they returned, their boss and team expected them to be competent in the new things learned, and...
    4. They were expected to apply what they learned immediately.

    If you get a chance to go to an all day workshop away from the office, you are constantly interrupted by work during the day thanks to email and other media, and you are twice as overwhelmed when you return the next day. The likelihood that performance will change is becoming less and less.

    If you’re a person who believes that our duty is to help people perform better and make more impact at work, this realization is tough to accept. It’s time to step up, revisit how we deliver performance change and rise to the opportunity to truly improve productivity and engagement. 

    Join Lou as she shares ideas, rubrics and tactics to move into the next evolution of learning and development.

    Organizations that teach their employees the skills to hold crucial conversations experience results!

    Top-rated leaders routinely employ skills that turn diverse thought into synergy and synergy into results by mastering crucial conversations. In short, when the stakes are high, opinions differ, and emotions run strong, the best individuals, teams, and organizations: 

    • Speak up and encourage others to do the same—no matter the topic, power difference, or sensitivity of the subject. 

    • Create an environment where people share their best ideas, make wise decisions, and then act on those decisions with conviction. 

    • Speak persuasively, and not abrasively. 

    Based on the award-winning training program, Crucial Conversations, and the bestselling book of the same title, this program will guide you through the steps to mastering crucial conversations to achieve alignment, agreement, and execution.

    Join us to learn how its done having one crucial conversation at a time.

    Our Presenter: Stephen Childs

    Steve spent eighteen years of his professional career
    in the pharmaceutical industry. He started as a sales rep and was promoted through the ranks to run one of the marketing divisions, then one of the sales divisions, and eventually to the leadership development team. 
    In 2009, Steve started his own consulting company specializing in leadership development and began working with VitalSmarts. He has worked with groups as small as 3 and as large as 2,500—ranging from the boardroom to the production line.Regardless of audience size, Steve’s goal is to engage the audience in an active learning process to increase retention and post-learning application. He believes intentional application is the primary purpose of a training session, and if we don’t convert the learning in the classroom to our professional and personal lives, we have wasted time and money. Facilitating this successful transition is one of Steve’s areas of expertise. Helping people grow, develop, and become better leaders and better people is one of the primary drivers in his life.
