What is Gamification?

Though I do not speak about it much last year I wrote a book and Gamification and business building called “Gamification for Business”.

Most of my writing now is about spiritual issues, and conscious business practices. It is part of the retreat we do at the Royal Victorian Bed and Breakfast and Spa in Stamford NY.

I spent the last few days at a holistic/new age conference. I was surprised at how many people are still using marketing models from the 1970s to promote their products.
There were multilevel marketers, psychics, chair massage therapists, stress management consultants and such. They all seemed to be struggling to get clients.
They need gamification!


Any businessperson can learn to use gamification; a combination of basic systems theory, decision science, positive psychology, motivational and inspirational tools and intuition to create, build, sustain and expand a successful business
The concept of gamification is inspired by what is called “game theory.” Game Theory is a discipline founded by John Von Neumann, a Hungarian-born American mathematician, scientific Renaissance man and polymath. Game Theory describes mathematical concepts (systems) that were designed to explain why and how individuals and organizations strategize, i.e. make decisions when one person (or more than one other person) might also affect the outcome of the decision. It is much more than just incentives, badges, and such.
I took John Von Neumann’s original concept, tweaked it a bit, and applied it to other disciplines to create Lewis Harrison’s Applied Game Theory (LHAGT), an approach that merges classic game theory, behavioral sociology with what is now called gamification. I then took this work and created a private executive and business coaching company and began offering private seminars to entrepreneurs who expressed an interest in my ideas. I have taken the elements from these seminars, and from them created this book. It is designed to help you maximize your business success at the lowest possible cost while serving the customer and the team members of your business.

The Greek philosopher Socrates stated that, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” I would rewrite this to say “The unexamined business is not worth having.”
If you are looking to take you business to the next level, if you are one of those individuals that is always asking questions, reading books on business success, and exploring personal development as a personal passion, then this book is for you.
