Someone is Waiting for YOU to Show Up

Was 2020 supposed to be “your year”? Of course, sometimes things don’t go the way we want them to, but 2020 has been a little much. A lot of what’s going on in the world right now can make us feel helpless and hopeless, but Jeff Harry has a message for you. How we respond in these situations can mean everything when it comes to what happens next.

In this conversation, Jeff talks about how powerful play really is. When we rediscover our play, we have a superpower that helps us become more resilient not only in the face of our personal struggles, but the struggles facing our country and the world.

So get ready to put away your expectations and start seeing the opportunities all around you. All you have to do is rediscover your play.

Meet Jeff Harry

 Jeff Harry 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.

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.  Jeff was selected by BambooHR & Engagedly as one of the Top 100 HR Influencers of 2020 for his organizational development work around dealing with toxic people in the workplace. His play work has most recently been featured in the NY Times article: How Do We Add More Play To Our Grown-Up Life – Even Now. He has also been featured on AJ+, SoulPancake, the SF Chronicle, and CNN.

While we spend most of our time pretending to be important, serious grownups, it’s when we let go of that facade and just play, that the real magic happens. Fully embracing your own nerdy genius — whatever that is — gives you the power to make a difference and change lives.  Jeff believes that we already have many of the answers we seek, and by simply unleashing our inner child, we can find our purpose and, in turn, help to create a better world.

“For everything to go perfectly, that means that you can only have one outcome? That means all of the unforeseen opportunities to connect are gone. All of those play moments are gone because you’re fixated on one choice.”

-Jeff Harry
