Make discovery fun!
Play is awesome tool towards change and growth processes. Due to its light tone it takes the sting out of heavier issues, makes people more flexible and inventive. Play also makes you more physical aware and less mental. This means ideas you end up with are more grounded. Play should be applied more in meetings, game design, and certainly eduction.
