How True Play Transforms the Way We Live, Love and Lead

Does creating change seem like a constant uphill struggle? Are you blocked by relentless resistance? Do you feel lost and alone in your efforts to create positive change?

It turns out change need not be full of pain and suffering. What’s more, the pain can be managed and the suffering is purely optional. According to child development experts, play is the most effective and efficient way of enabling children to learn, lead, collaborate and be at their best. It turns out this also holds true for adults, especially when it comes to organisational change, based on Portia’s 20 years of working and playing with adults in organisations large and small.

In this highly interactive talk, you will experience the catalysing power of play and gain an understanding of how play can convert seemingly relentless resistance to change into joyful anticipation of growth instead. You will learn and experience the benefits of play firsthand and, by being re-acquainted with the knowledge of play, explore what being a playful leader means to you.

Through a pawful of tried and tested exercises from play science, neuroscience, psychology and  coaching, you will develop a greater appreciation of how to enable transformational change for you and others - beginning with yourself.

Play your cards right and you will increase not only your EQ but expand your Play IQ, the foundation of all intelligences according to the latest Play Science theory. No humans or monkeys were harmed in the creation of this session. Bananas not included.
