Too often we think of play as something reserved for children, or worse, for the lazy, idle, and irresponsible. But playfulness is serious business. It helps us connect to one another in an authentic way, recover from high-stress situations, enjoy our job more, and remain curious about the world around us.

In this two-hour session, we will:

• Consider the role of play in connecting with colleagues, clients, and customers

• Learn about the role of humour in building rapport and addressing conflict

• Practise using play to generate new ideas and solutions to pressing problems

• Learn ways to make our daily routine more adventurous and playful
