02:05 – Permission to Play with Jeff Harry
This week we are granting permission to play! We are joined by our awesome friend, Jeff Harry who is an expert on all things play and one of the funnest humans ever. He chats with us about why it’s important to have fun, and how play can actually make you better at adulting. It’s one of the best interviews we’ve had and we can’t wait to make an IKEA sardines game happen.
GLAD GAME PICKS:
Jill: Let’s rearrange all the furniture like grown ups!
Sarah: Let’s get new furniture like grown ups!
Jeff: Let’s take a really cool class and some really cool collaboration!!
ABOUT OUT GUEST:
Jeff Harry believes that there’s nothing quite like watching a Senior Executive screaming with delight while skipping after a tiny LEGO® car.
As the VP of Fun at Play-Well TEKnologies, he and his team show kids and adults how to tap into their true selves-feel their happiest and most fulfilled – all by playing with tiny LEGO® pieces.
Jeff has worked with Google, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, Adobe, the NFL, Amazon and Facebook, helping their staff to infuse more play into the day-to-day. It turns out that giving people permission to be really silly helps them be more productive, learn faster and love their work.
His play work has been featured on AJ+, SoulPancake, the SF Chronicle and CNN.
Jeff understands that, while we spend most of our time pretending to be important, serious grown ups, when we can let go of that facade and just play, magic happens.
Fully embracing your own nerdy genius – whatever that is – gives you the power to make a difference and change lives.
