    Navigating Difficult Conversations Through Play

    Does the idea of having challenging conversations make you cringe? It doesn't need to! Communication is a sandbox, and when you play in it, it can lead to building trust, establishing inclusivity, and creating psychologically safe spaces where people can thrive. If we don't talk, we can't learn, and ultimately relationships fracture. We will facilitate a series of experiential activities that will provide you with play-oriented tools to practice exploring language and tone, shifting perspectives, and questioning the stories in your head. Let us help you redirect the mental energy currently devoted to unhealthy coping mechanisms and channel it towards identifying the underlying obstacles getting in the way of understanding each other. Replace confusion with clarity by adjusting your communication habits that will help build a stronger, healthier future for us all.

    •  Learn play-oriented tools to practice exploring language & shift perspectives
    •  Address the underlying issues getting in the way of understanding each other
    •  Identify actionable strategies to have that difficult conversation you have been avoiding for far too long

    Jeff Harry combines positive psychology and play to heal workplaces, help teams build psychological safety and assist individuals in addressing their biggest challenges through embracing a play-oriented approach to work. Some of the topics he covers include how to dismantle toxic masculinity in the workplace, how to navigate the Great Resignation & uncertainty through play, how to deal with toxicity in the workplace, how to address the BS of office politics, how to tackle difficult conversations at work, how to play with your inner critic, and how to help your staff rediscover their flow.  For his work, Jeff was selected by BambooHR & Engagedly as one of the Top 100 HR Influencers.  His work has most recently been featured in the NY Times, Mashable, Upworthy, Shondaland, & Wired.  Jeff has worked with Google, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, Adobe, the NFL, Amazon, and Facebook, helping their staff to infuse more play into the day-to-day.
