Play Matters for Well-Being

As companies come back together for the first time, they have lots to cover. But we’re finding more leaders paying attention to their team’s need to feel refreshed, connected, and uplifted. That’s where we come in.

Paul recently performed his interactive keynote, Play Matters, three days in a row for a company that divided its team up to accommodate social distancing safe practices. After a morning of business topics and lunch, Paul reminded them that although it often drops to the bottom of our to-do list, play is critical for whole-person well-being. 

While giving a juggling lesson and taking them through Flop Ball exercises (giving them a chance to actually play during the session), he weaves in research about the benefits of play for physical, intellectual, emotional, and social well-being.

The play session was a hit with a diverse audience of new and experienced employees made up of office, technical, and construction staff ranging in age from 20-60 years old. Here’s just a few of their survey responses:

~ "Paul did an amazing job and I will be hoping that we get to see him again. I have been bragging to all of my friends and family that he was simply amazing!"

~ "The smiles on everyone's face made my day!"

~ "This presentation reminded me that it's important to take a bit of time to step back, laugh, and enjoy some lighthearted play."
