Our Method

P.L.A.Y!
This is our secret sauce-our unique 5 step process shifts you to a more positive mindset. Everything we do with your employees flows through P.L.A.Y!

P=Plug-In

These sessions are all about YOU–we attune to your people so they can attune to each other emotionally, physically and mentally.  We listen, interact and morph in the moment uplifting and teaching them in the moment.  You can’t get that with recorded content.

L=Level the Playing Field

This is where our playful/mindful time comes in.  Yes, you can do both! Breathwork, shifting  energy inward and noticing your own body are key to feeling safe and confident enough to really Play! It’s where our motto, “From Safety we can find our Silly” was born!

A=Apply and Adapt

By now, everyone is in that state of FLOW that shifts thought processes. Through various modes of play, they’ll rise to the challenge, learn tips and tools and start SHIFTING mindsets, finding more positive ways to connect to others, pursue work demands and ease stress levels.

Y=Yes…AND

As the session closes, we allow time to process what we’ve done. More breathwork and conversation are done as we review our experience in play, assess current moods and brainstorm ways to keep this feeling throughout the week.  Personalized skill building play exercises will be given to help reinforce your team’s new superpowers!

Exclamation Point!!

Ending on a high note is key to keeping that playful, uplifting vibe going once we release people back into the “wilds” of  ‘new normal’ daily life! We celebrate breakthroughs, inventive ideas and other cool things that came out of our time together. We’ll ensure everyone is pumped up and ready to tackle what’s ahead, without needing to mainline afternoon caffeine!

The Science of Play

Sounds like an oxy-moron, doesn’t it? But it’s a thing. Really!  There have been many researchers with many different theories about Play.  From Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, (pronounced Me high/ Cheeks send me high), a Hungarian American psychologist and his outlook on Play and Flow to Dr. Stuart Brown, the founder of The National Institute of Play.

Purposeful
Play

 We base our business on Purposeful, Attuned Play. This is Playful Mind Project’s Secret Sauce! This means playing certain games and activities for certain reasons at certain times. There’s a method to the madness that informs and motivates. When employees are having fun, they learn better and are more open to changes that improve their productivity. Playing the right game at the right time is key to effectiveness!
