Get Outta Your Head!

Play-Based Indoor Workshop

Big kids still wanna play and have fun. In our fast-paced, performance-driven, high-tech world, we seem to have forgotten this and nowhere more so than in the business environment. While it may seem a bit contradictory, in a high tech world, the best response is one of high touch. And sometimes we need to get out of our heads for ideas to flow and for us to connect better with each other.

Every employee, whether part of management or otherwise, lives with a never ending “to do list”. To motivate them to perform better and to improve their level of enthusiasm and commitment, we need to remember that teams are not just made up of human doings but human beings. And, much like children, they need to be “parented” by management in order to decrease the “fear factor”, increase the “I can factor”, affirm the “survivor factor” and abolish the “weakest link factor”. They also yearn to become heroes in their own life stories, which includes the chapter that is being written in their place of work right now.

Professional speaker and author, Nikki Bush, is a master of fun and always full of bright ideas. She has a creative solution for your Women’s Day event this year that will be fun, unforgettable and novel.

Her dynamic, interactive Get Outta Your Head workshop is suitable for groups from 15 to 150 people it is guaranteed to have your audience rocking in no time at all as they rediscover the power of play, laughter and connection.

In a fast-paced, performance-driven, high-tech world, busyness transcends everything. Stopping, being, feeling and connecting are falling by the wayside. In the process women are becoming human doings and forgetting what it feels like to be human beings.

For effective productivity and more meaningful engagement in the workplace, everyone is desperately seeking ways to reconnect with self and others, to bring our humanity back into the room with all its wisdom and creativity. Nikki Bush can help you do just that.

Nikki will guide your audience through a number of powerful play-based processes/activities with facilitated conversation that will result in aha moments/profound personal realizations around:

  • relating
  • communicating
  • connecting
  • collaborating
  • co-operating
  • creating (new ideas or ways of thinking about something)
  • leveling the playing fields between employees
  • breaking down barriers between people
  • performance and productivity
  • engagement

This workshop can run for 1 – 3 hours depending on your requirements. It can be done in the workplace or off-site. You just need flexible seating at tables for your group with a bit of extra space around the room for some processes that may require floor space.
