Playing With Numbers Talk

A Symphony of Data and Play: Unleashing Human Potential

At the heart of your organization isn’t just data; it’s people. It’s about capturing the human spirit through data, crafting a psychologically safe workspace brimming with positivity, engagement, and collaboration. This is where vibrant work thrives. Playing With Numbers is not just a workshop; it’s a transformative experience that intertwines the precision of data communication with the joy of positive psychology and play.



  • Karla Starr’s Turbo Training: Dive deep into the art of data storytelling. Discover how misinterpreted data leads to workplace woes and learn the secrets to conveying complex data with clarity and impact.

  • A Holistic View: Gain a comprehensive understanding of both quantitative and qualitative data. We’ll guide you on integrating these insights to paint a complete picture of your organization.


  • Jeff Harry’s Playful Perspectives: Explore the chasm between employer and employee, uncovering ways to bridge the gap. We’ll identify critical organizational issues and introduce strategies to heal workplace divisions, fostering a culture where managers and employees support one another’s best work.



Why should data and play walk hand in hand? Imagine a Venn diagram where data represents the mind’s clarity and play embodies the heart’s joy. At the intersection lies innovation, engagement, and a thriving workplace culture. This section of our proposal is dedicated to illustrating this harmony, offering a clear visual that connects the dots between data and play.

How customizable is the content of the workshop to address specific challenges or goals within our organization? Are there opportunities for participants to bring in their own data or workplace scenarios for a more tailored learning experience?

YES! The workshop is fully customizable. After teaching data communications to organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies to tiny non-profits for years, I have a full set of modules ready to work directly with your group’s data. This is available in the package.

What methods or techniques will you employ during the workshop to ensure high levels of engagement from all participants, especially in a virtual setting? How do you plan to keep the energy levels up and ensure that the concepts are being absorbed and can be practically applied?

In virtual settings, a meeting assistant will be on the Zoom call to monitor the chat function. I monitor each room during breakout sessions to answer individual questions. For introverts and workers who prefer more time, the deluxe package gives workshop participants the option of scheduling individual follow-up sessions.

Beyond the post-event follow-ups mentioned, what additional support or resources are available to ensure the long-term implementation of the strategies discussed during the data storytelling workshop? Do you offer ongoing consulting or access to further learning materials?

Yes! Each organization will receive access to a private, password-protected webpage, with links to the workbook and additional learning materials: PDFs of academic articles, links to helpful websites, and ChatGPT prompts to turbo-charge your data communication skills.
