When coaching it can often be challenging to craft an approach for a team that will be engaging, fun and that will successfully instil the learning we hope to provide. We believe that one of the best ways to achieve this is through gaming and experiential learning.
Games and metaphors are an excellent way to simulate challenges and scenarios we face everyday at work in a safe, controlled and meaningful way. What better way to learn than actually gaining an experience by playing with some lego, jenga or throwing some balls around. As Benjamin Franklin once said “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
#play14 is a community of people who are passionate about using games professionally. We all come from different backgrounds, from Agile to the Arts but we all have one thing in common - a love of games as a means to educate, enlighten and coach. And event like #play14 allows us to meet several times a year in cities across the world to share games, knowledge and network and the best part is that we take all these learnings back home and re-use within our own teams.
