Group games are fabulous, but you don't always have ten people to hand ready to spend 15 minutes laughing with you. Secret games are great for lifting energy, giving you focus and improving the flavour of what you do at work.
Here's a game you can play alone, with a colleague who can keep their mouth shut or with a friend in another location. It's great to have someone to share the joy with!
Go ahead, make my day better!
1. Pick a person at work and set a day to play. For the whole day, each time you come across this person, listen to every word they say to you with your full presence and attention, whether they're chatting about the weather or speaking their mind about an important project. Before you speak to them, take a long, deep, luxurious breath. Every time.
2. Notice how you feel as you play this game. Notice any differences in how they behave towards you. Share what happened with someone else. If you like, you can post your comments here.
