We are highly selective with admitting new members (~20% admit rate), so fully completed profile questions will get priority. What is your full name and LinkedIn profile URL?

Jennifer (Jen) McElrath Having seen the waste of talent, lack of satisfaction and unhappiness in organizations, often due to ineffective communication and recognition, I want to make it easier for people to engage and reach their goals. I want to make autonomy, mastery and purpose more transparent, as motivators. I want people to realize that it is often through helping each other that we reach our goals.

What is the nature of your interest in designing experiences for personal habit development?

No answer yet

Can you share a 5-minute personal story about a successful habit practice that's lasted longer than 100 days? If so, please give us just a quick synopsis!

One Fortune 500 customer is in their 2nd year using Reciprocity to increase exercise consistency and intensity. Last year in one eight-week program participants increased activity levels over that of five prior years. Participants stated that the app raised the bar. Plus, the drop off in participation was eliminated. This year there is a 19% increase in the number participating.

Which (if any) relevant guest speaker(s) could you contact to speak at a future meetup with whom you already have a personal relationship?

Without asking first, I cannot provide names; however, there are relevant people in my network.

Which specific host locations (if any) could you contact to host/sponsor a future meetup?

Ha! As a startup with a small Mission office, our real estate is not up to hosting a speaking event. Our rooftop deck could hold twenty for a beer and wine event (weather permitting).


Seek to transform individuals and organizations through the shared pursuit of their values and goals. Offering a gamified enterprise platform for employee engagement and team performance, as Chief Business Officer and Co-founder of Reciprocity.
