A playful mindset is one that is relaxed, creative, imaginative and in-flow. It eschews consequences and strict goals in favor of exploration and adventure.

As we grow into managers and leaders, we often become so bogged down with our responsibilities that our inherent playfulness gets damped down or completely disappears.

When this happens. we may fool ourselves into thinking that we've put playful things aside to make room for greater impact and value. In fact, just the opposite is true - we've closed the door on the source of our learning, creativity and joy.

This highly interactive training is a first step to reintegrating and celebrating your ability to play. As a leader, this will unlock you and your team to do your best work and have a blast while you do it.

In this workshop, you will...

  • Learn about the value of play and its role as an invaluable part of work.
  • Discover how creativity emerges from play.
  • Understand the relationship between play and execution.
  • Learn our tried-and-tested, small-group games that stimulate creativity, team cohesion and psychological safety.
  • Explore two main practices of effective, playful leaders.
  • Have the opportunity to ask detailed questions about the application of these ideas to your work.

It hasn't been 24hrs since your workshop, and I've already used the phrase "let's play with this idea" several times in order to defuse resistance to seemingly impractical ideas 😎. Thank you so much for reminding us how to be creative at work, and that it's ok to be playful with ideas 🥳

I learnt about really listening to others to cue my responses. I learnt about speaking as a team. I learnt how to use the "yes and phrase". Which I love! The session would best be described as really exciting learning in a totally fun manner.
