Research shows the industrial method of business & education and our desire to relentlessly motivate people is killing innovation and creativity in our workplaces. CEOs say they have more 'doers' than 'thinkers' and yet in business, we need to become both.

In this workshop, Melissa Browne and Rod Soper will show how you can support your people to move from rules-based, glass-half-full conformists to engaged, creative and critical thinkers. They'll discuss, share and play with the concept of building a successful organisation through a culture of purposeful play by looking at rules, stories, psychological safety, how to play, perfectionism and failure. 

You'll spend time playing during the workshop so you can discover for yourselves just why play with purpose is so important for a healthy, vibrant, successful organisation.The aim is for you to  walk away not just excited by a new concept but equipped with new tools so you can become the protagonist who starts a revolution through play in your organisation.

This event is perfect for leaders, managers, business owners, educators and creatives.
