Overcoming the Challenge


How do you engage, energize, and unite exhausted and depleted employees to deliver extraordinary results?


1. Science behind our method

Championing our best selves becomes a challenge when our brains are depleted. Although our brain constitutes only 2% of our body weight, it consumes 20% of our daily energy reserves.

Exhaustion impairs our brain's executive function—a collection of mental skills including working memory, flexible thinking, and self-control. These skills are crucial for learning, working, and daily life management. The impaired executive function makes it difficult to focus, follow directions, and regulate emotions.


Research reveals that specific hormones are released during various situations. For instance, when mammals connect, our brain releases oxytocin, fostering trust, rapport, and bonding. This surge in dopamine enhances motivation, creativity, ingenuity, and goal orientation.


Connecting with story characters prompts the release of oxytocin, known as the "bonding" hormone. Stories cultivate emotion and togetherness, creating deeper connections. Stories make us feel part of something larger than ourselves.



Engaging narratives capture attention and enhance message absorption compared to plain facts and figures.


Imagination enhances brain function, generating ideas through various senses, with visualization playing a pivotal role. Imagination boosts brainpower, encouraging unconventional thinking, especially when immersed in a story.


Positive, Defining, and Lasting Impact


Our method merges the benefits of storytelling and role-playing techniques, fostering a positive, defining, and enduring connection among participants.


In a fictional realm, participants describe character actions through speech. Their choices shape quest outcomes based on formal rules. Within these rules, freedom to improvise empowers creativity, directing quests to integrate culture and objectives.


Actions impacting the story release dopamine when possibilities emerge, while successful outcomes boost serotonin, enhancing belief, confidence, and well-being.
