                                                              Play develops imagination, dexterity, physical and emotional strength. Seen as a key part of childhood development the benefits of play don’t stop as we become an adult. The processes of play and being playful can continue to develop us and make us stronger through our entire lives. In 1967, Brian Sutton-Smith demonstrated that study participants who were given a task to imagine various purposes for an object were likely to come up with considerably more ideas than their peers if they were allowed to play and tinker with the object first. In the workplace an approach to play extends possibilities, brings teams together and offers new perspectives to problem solving. How will adding a little more play into your life change how you do things?
