What you will learn:
The BIG DEAL: The Spirit of Play
You can escape the industrial age perfection trap that makes it nearly impossible to try new things – a trap that has probably had you stuck for years. You will learn how to enjoy playing again and play better through game planning, skills practice, inner freedom and designing a winning environment. And naturally, you will do these things with everyone you coach!
Coaching Super Power: Game Design
Engagement is the currency of the new economy! It is the THING every company and every community is yearning for. When you can “design the game” in any endeavor and then coach your players to play better, you have the key to engagement in business and in life!
Key Distinction: Control vs. Influence
In the Industrial Age we were trained to minimize our activities to that which we could control. This way we can avoid mistakes and failure.
As we move into the Connected Age we realize that control is mostly an illusion. There are no “right answers” to most life situations. So the game is to give up the illusion of control and instead play for positive influence.
The definition of a game: any activity with an outcome that you can NOT control, but you can influence with your energy, creativity, strategy, skill and action.
Big Breakthrough: Make failure an option!
In the Industrial Age we were taught to avoid failure. Dictum’s like: “failure is not an option” and “do it right the first time or don’t do it at all”, ruled the day. While it is wise to avoid carelessness, if you play your day with the intention to avoid failure you have to keep your life really small. This is no way to live! When you are willing to fail, you are free to play; to create; to try new things; to go for bigger things; to take risks… to REALLY LIVE!
Learning how to learn from failure is essential to becoming a great player in any endeavor!
Learn and Practice the REAL Coaching Model
The REAL Coaching Model is at the core of the Play 2 Win Coaching Method.
You will learn how to co-create “Observation – Conversation” loops which are essential to the experience of coaching.
You will also learn how to design a game with your player based on the idea that the games of life are played by creating and relating.
You will learn how to find the right balance between support and challenge; and between expertise and judgment-free awareness.
Learn the human RACE coaching model!
The human RACE coaching model is a powerful framework that you can use ANY coaching situation and ANY coaching conversation.
RACE stands for:
R = Results
A = Action
C = Challenge
E = Evaluate what matters
A result is anything that you cannot control, BUT you can influence with your strategy, skill, energy and attitude. New and better results is typically what players desire most when they have a coach.
This is what the player will do in pursuit of the results they desire. Taking better actions (strategy) and getting better at actions (skill) is where you put a lot of your coaching attention.
A challenge is anything that stands in the way of the player creating the results they desire. Some challenges are external, some are internal. Every challenge is a learning opportunity. And in game design theory, the challenges are what make the game worth playing. The player / coach process is to re-frame every challenge as FUN!
Evaluate what matters
This is where the player and coach step back and evaluate what happened “in the game”. After observation, the coach and player step into life-changing conversations and learn from everything that happened and everything they wanted to happen but didn’t.

June M. Porter
I have had great success using the Play Two Win method with my clients. I have found it so much easier to use than other vague coaching concepts / techniques.
I am very happy, relieved and pleased that there is such a simple, straight forward method for getting started in coaching. I greatly enjoyed the discussion about coaching in the spirit of play. I also enjoyed discussing the difference between work and play and agree that most people don’t have enough joy in their day to day lives. I’m excited that coaching can address this!
I loved the discussion about the difference between project management and coaching especially using the play to win model. I assumed that coaching was helping people figure out their tasks! But now I see that it is about figuring out who they want to become!
I actually used this concept with one of my clients and we both had an “ah ha” moment which lead right into a BIG next step for her.
