People have different ideas about what fun is. Yet, all organizations know that feeling part of a team is fun. A state of openness and connection is fun, whether you are an introvert or extrovert, a CEO, or a certified nurse assistant. Everyone loves the “Aha” moments when solutions to a problem come into view. The Intelligence of Fun unlocks the keys to seeing solutions to problems as fun – being solution-minded and not problem-focused.


The point is that working within a culture of playfulness and the Intelligence of Fun is proven to increase productivity, motivation, creativity, new learning, and staff engagement. It affects everything … from the bottom line up.
