WHY PLAY MATTERS
OF OUR MINDS
At Make Work Play we are on a mission to harness the power of play to create happy, healthy, collaborative teams. Because we believe it’s easier to get the hard work done when you’re having fun.
Play creates optimism, helps us comprehend complexity and make connections. It fosters empathy, increases the plasticity of our minds and leads to mastery.
With this in mind we offer playful workshops and coaching that draw on improvisation, storytelling, imagery, embodiment and nature. We create a container where you can get the work done without it feeling like work.
And we send people away feeling connected, motivated and clear about the road ahead.
