Some Teams We Have Played With!

Tough Times Don't Last. Tough Teams Do.


The modern workplace is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. The way teams respond to these factors often determine their success.

Great teams are resilient. They thrive through change and adversity and bounce back from difficult and challenging experiences. The good news is resilience can be learned, nurtured and developed.

The Resilience PLAYshop is the ultimate modern-skill building workshop! Through it's immersive games and content, teams will learn to avoid common mindset traps & become solution-focused with a CAN-DO attitude. This PLAYshop will increase confidence, energy & morale to ensure team success!

For Teams That Are:

  • Client - facing (sales, etc) or leadership-driven
  • Undergoing massive change or growth
  • Under constant stress or pressures

Used By Teams To:

  • Learn strategies to thrive through negativity & adversity
  • Become solution-oriented, adaptive to change and comfortable with uncertainty
  • Cultivate a positive culture of focus, energy and engagement

We use the power of PLAY to teach 'modern day business skills' with a focus on workplace wellness.

How It Works:

PLAYshops are fun, experiential & highly impactful! This team building workshop can take place right in your office or at any locally scheduled event, conference, retreat, etc. All materials provided and teams of 8-200+ can be accommodated. There are 3 components to creating a high performance, resilient team that adapts well to change:

1. Group Games

Fun and interactive games that are designed to get teams to break down barriers and learn about themselves and the group at large.

2. Positive Psychology

The research behind what makes life worth living and aims to discover and promote the factors that allow individuals and groups to thrive.

3. ‘Art-ivities’

Fun experiential activities to bring it all together.  Don't worry….no artistic abilities necessary!
