In today's episode Judith Germain speaks to Rona Lewis about purposeful play and its role in increasing engagement and productivity in companies. Rona explains how play can tap into the inner child and promote positive psychology, innovative thinking, and psychological safety in the workplace.

They discus the concept of purposeful play and how it can be applied in training courses and the importance of building trust and psychological safety in teams through play and games. 

Judith and Rona discuss the importance of finding joy and fulfillment outside of work, and the importance of making the workplace more playful and how leaders can convince their managers to embrace this change. 

Rona Lewis champions the inner child, increasing psychological safety and improving innovative thinking. She is a Play Instigator and rallies company culture by engaging employees through customised programmes. She is also the co founder and CEO of Playful Mind Project.

Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It's about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn't just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It's also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.

How Influential Are you? Take the scorecard at and see.
