New Games Leadership Workshop with Founder Dale Le Fevre

New Games are (physical) cooperative games where everybody wins!

This is an amazing opportunity for educators, group leaders and facilitators to learn New Games by playing them! Guest facilitator, Dale Le Fevre, is one of the originators of New Games, teaching since 1975, over 1000 courses in 34 countries. He is the author of three New Games books and has produced five videos.

Dale invites you to rediscover play! New Games are simply fun, so expect playful interaction with your peers of all ages, sizes, abilities, and genders, for any subject area, or work situation! Learn more

Here’s what you will learn:

  • Over 30 New Games
  • How to lead the games,
  • When to use which ones, and
  • How to create your own New Games.

New Games can be used to re-energize your team and are excellent ice breakers. This hands-on two-day session explores how games can be used for team building, such as improving communication & conflict resolution.
