A Playmaker is…

A Playmaker is not afraid of rejection or put-downs. We are brought up to believe that “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” but Playmakers know damn well that’s just a song we chant to children. Adults can be brutal.

When a Playmaker trips up, the first thing they do is check for damage. With their bones intact, they dust themselves off, ready to play again.

Over time, a Playmaker goes from leaping over muddy puddles on the way to work to crossing different worlds on the same office floor, bringing ideas and people together.

A Playmaker has the heart of a lion without needing to roar out loud. They hear the roar in their head when they are mad, sad or glad.

A Playmaker does one thing a day that scares them, all the while living and breathing the Playmaker Values. How will you scare yourself today?
