, How it Works    

Step inside the Play on Purpose platform and see all of these great features in action! Our 2-minute behind the scenes tour will show you how our filters help you quickly find the right exercise for your group and our resources instantly up-level your facilitation.

The Professional Development Tool that lets you learn anytime, anywhere, at a fraction of the cost.

Learning from videos is better

It’s hard to learn new games by reading them on paper! It’s nearly impossible to tell how people will respond, how to clearly model the instructions, and how to anticipate the potential pitfalls.  By watching the video you get the living felt sense of being in the room.

Find what you need quickly

Searching for videos of games on YouTube is often a long and frustrating process, sorting through exercises that are not relevant or appropriate for your group or context. Our easy search filters sort through the library to give you what you need quickly.

Online learning saves you time and money

It’s expensive and time consuming to take in-person workshops, hoping you might pick up a useful game or two. With this video library all the games are always at your fingertips for a minimal investment.

Where can you use these games?

You can use these activities to accelerate connection, learning and impact at any live virtual or in-person event, such as:

offsites

conferences

summits

retreats

workshops

trainings

meetings

brainstorming sessions

Leverage the Power of Play
Why Play?

More than an activity, play is a mindset that encourages curiosity and adaptability.

A culture of play creates a safe environment for creativity and innovation to flourish.

When play is practiced with intention, it can be a profound vehicle for accelerating growth, learning and development.

Research shows that experiential play:

Induces a “flow” state, ideal for creativity and the learning of new skills

Lights up the whole brain and creates new neural path ways that literally make you smarter

Strengthens collaboration, builds creative problem-solving skills, and helps your team to overcome challenges quickly and easily.

Origins of Play on Purpose

Over the years, I had become the person people called when they needed an infusion of meaningful play in their events. After hundreds of these one-on-one consultations, I decided to launch this library of videos as a way of making these impactful exercises available to more people like you!

The Play On Purpose library is the culmination of 20 years of researching, learning, and developing playful methods for engaging groups. I have used these exercises with tens of thousands of people around the world, and I am confident that they can work their magic on any group.

Play on Purpose - Group Session

Each exercise is a precious gem that can be themed and re-interpreted in a million ways to deliver the experience that your group needs right now. I hope you find these tools useful in your practice, and that you continue to experiment with them and make them your own.

Play on!
