Let’s Get Serious About Play
Welcome to LightSwitch Consulting, a forward-thinking organization helping businesses and organizations like yours address team challenges through play. Yes, you read that right: playtime is for adults too and it’s the perfect tool for team building.
Team culture sets the tone for success. When staff are afraid of failure, this can lead to a lack of creativity and a tendency to play it safe. If the team dynamics don’t improve and staff struggle to connect authentically, retention can be at risk, leadership may lack the confidence to step into their role, and poor communication practices can take over. These problems may be at the root of what stops you from addressing more specific challenges.
But don’t worry! Solving problems doesn’t have to be so serious. LightSwitch Consulting can help you discover light-bulb moments through tailored, play-based workshops built on the principles of applied improvisation. Through interactive, fun games, deep personal and group discoveries can be activated. Within this creative and honest environment, collaboration thrives in a playful and inviting way that makes work more fun and authentic.
Leave egos at the door and create a safe space for authentic conversations to thrive.
Break down barriers and address root problems on an even-playing field, focusing on fun and reframing failure as a natural part of learning.
Learn to listen to your team members and validate their thoughts while asserting yours through applied improv games and exercises.
Hi, I’m Phil, entrepreneur and applied improvisation facilitator. As a former full-time firefighter, I understand the importance of a well-functioning team, and the consequences of a poor one. I have worked in environments governed by fear, where being authentic was not encouraged and team members would work to make themselves look good at the expense of others. From my work creating and hosting a live game show, I know how to facilitate a safe and supportive environment where participants become comfortable with being vulnerable and letting themselves play.
