-Paul “Mitch” Mitchell, Leadership Coach, Author and Founder of the Human Enterprise
Play of Life® produces breakthroughs in any area where success and growth rely on individual insight and interpersonal dynamics by allowing people to present issues, concerns, feelings, dreams and goals three-dimensionally. People go beyond verbal descriptions and explanations to literally ‘see’ relationships and situations clearly, bypassing the neo-cortex - where language is located - to directly connect with the limbic system; that part of the brain that deals with emotions and memory.
By linking the limbic system, people fast-forward to the crux of the matter and experience those magical ‘aha’ moments. From there they have a stronger platform from which to name unwanted behaviours and roles with objectivity, and then to visualize and simulate new behaviours without heat or pressure on themselves. This is the cornerstone of the Play of Life® methodology. Put simply, the Play of Life® makes communication easier, and makes positive behavioural transformation faster.
Play of Life® is applied extensively in the fields of leadership, Life and Corporate coaching, psychotherapy, counselling, family dispute resolution and self-analysis.
