The Intelligence Of Grit Podcast

Jan 12, 2021

Dear Grown-up,

How often do you take time to play?

As someone who rarely takes time for fun, my conversation with Jeff Harry was a much needed eye-opener on how we can use play to be more productive and have more joy! On this episode, Jeff and I talked about how to ‘Rediscover Your Play”.  Not only did Jeff give strategies on how to play, he also provided real-world examples of how play can positively impact our GRIT, creativity, and relationships!  After having this conversation, I’m more determined than ever to incorporate more play into my daily life.  

About Jeff:

Jeff is an international speaker who has presented at conferences such as INBOUND, SXSW, and Australia’s Pausefest, showing audiences how major issues in the workplace can be solved using play.  He shows individuals and companies how to tap into their true selves, to feel their happiest and most fulfilled — all by playing. 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.

Key G.R.I.T points you’ll learn from this episode:
