DARE TO GROW
“We should EXPECT THE BEST, and so live that the best may become a part of our experience.”
Why Does My Organization Need PlayShops?
Thriving in any organization depends upon the ability of its team members to flourish. Your organization succeeds when three things happen: team members envision new ideas, collaborative action occurs, and belief in prosperity endures. What better way to encourage a climate of positive thinking than through intentional play! An hour or two of laughing and playing together builds more camaraderie than a whole day of manager-led team building exercises. That’s why it makes perfect sense that many executives play golf.
Playing golf is “intentional play;” because the golfer sets a mental intention as to the direction and distance the ball must travel to go in the hole. The stronger the intention, the closer to the hole the ball arrives. Our Corporate PlayShops engage participants in setting and focusing on affirmative intentions until they are achieved. They enhance team creativity and camaraderie.
What follows is an OVERVIEW of available Corporate PlayShops. There is at least one that is perfect for your team. Or, we are happy to customize a PlayShop for you. All Corporate PlayShops are based on a minimum of six participants. Some also have maximums. For more detailed information, please visit our CORPORATE PLAYHOPS REGISTER page or feel free to contact us.
Smaller organizations may wish to consider our Individual PlayShops which are similar in nature.
What is Play?
Play is a state of consciousness that is profoundly delightful and temporarily transports us out of time and space. It is free of rules, mistakes, and evaluations and supports our creative thinking. Through play we express our innermost yearnings and talents.
While there are infinite forms of play, there are four that are specific to LifePlay House:
- MindPlay which is thinking to expand knowledge.
- HeartPlay which is sensing the world to heighten intuition.
- BodyPlay which is moving the body to amplify action.
- SoulPlay which is aligning with creative principles to empower our lives.
What Is the Difference Between a Workshop and PLAYSHOP?
A workshop is intense focus on a previously identified task or target. It engages the thoughts and imaginations of participants to achieve a specific goal. Participants direct their efforts toward working with ideas to achieve a predefined mission. In a workshop, the intention is predetermined.
A PlayShop has no predefined task or mission. It engages the imagination, the heart, the body, and the soul to consider all available possibilities for choices. Participants direct their energies toward playing with possibilities and choosing those that birth greater fulfillment and assure success. In a PlayShop, intentions are created by participants.
