Benefits of Playfulness
There are many benefits to embracing playfulness in our lives and our workplaces. Playfulness allow us to shift from anxiety & worries to curiosity & passion, reducing stress, creating psychologically safer space for our teams, unleashing creativity and collaboration.
Teams that play together, stay together - playfulness helps with relationship building even in a remote or a hybrid workspace!
Play tickles our brains, engages our emotions, simultaneously exercising our creative and analytical muscles, and helping us connect the dots in the most innovative, unexpected ways.
How might your workplace, your development teams or your leadership teams look, feel and function differently with a little bit more playfulness in them? How might an experiment look like for you?
