Storytelling Playshop

How It Works

  • Intro

    The facilitator will welcome your team, explain how the group will learn (through mindfulness, facilitation, and engagement), and provide an overview of the FUNdamentals of Play Rules. The group will then partake in grounding exercises and quick icebreakers to warm up the mind and body.

  • Keep A Positive Mindset

    The group will explore the Top 10 positive Emotions, Negative Bias & Critical Positivity Ratio, and the Benefits of Positivity. This will be followed by a group discussion where individuals can apply personal experiences and applications. Sample Games: Emotional Name Swap, 7 Things, Trifecta, Story Builders

  • Thinking About The Audience

    The group will identify the capacities, concerns, and interests of your audience and how those differ from those of the speaker. Sample Games: Changing Places, Interesting Email, My Story, Twinsies/Reverse Twinsies, Interpretationz

  • Getting The Audience To Listen

    The group will work on telling people why and how they should listen to what you’re about to say. Until you tell people what is going to happen, they don’t know HOW to listen the way you would like them to. Sample Games: Story Half Life, Headlines, Swedish Storytelling, The Translator

  • Helping The Audience Understand

    The group will explore the speaker brain vs the audience brain and how to make storytelling “real” for the audience by using sense experience and relevant examples. Sample Games: 3 Corner Story (Narrative, Emotion, Detail), Rumors, TV Infomercials, OMG Random Object, Show & Tell

  • Closing Remarks

    The group recaps on the lessons learned and reflects on the major takeaways they can now apply to their everyday life.

Additional Materials Required

  • Zoom Video App


FUNdamentals of Play facilitates fun and experiential workshops (aka PLAYshops!) that focus on the main factors that allow teams to thrive: positivity, teamwork and creativity.

Using improv games, positive psychology and art-based activities, PLAYshops help teams enhance modern day business skills such as empathy, storytelling and failure.

"PLAYshops changed our team! Not only did everyone's performance improve, but they laugh more, work more as a team, help one another, and the gratitude that they show is beyond my expectations. The positivity in the office is undeniably the best its ever been! They don't fear obstacles now, they love the challenge and celebrate together playing games from PLAYshop when they have overcome them. I highly recommend Fundamentals of Play and especially Luis as a facilitator. Change the way your employees think and have some fun!"
