Shirley was introduced to the Bigger Game model six years ago and after the introduction and reading the book, Play Your Bigger Game, by Rick Tamlyn, she wanted to add this tool to help others learn and apply the Bigger Game concepts.  Shirley was certified as a trainer November 2014.

The Bigger Game was designed with the premise that life itself is one big game.  If life is a game, then why not play one that excites, fulfills and challenges you.   The Bigger Game was created to counteract the self-limiting, fear-based approach to life.  Michelangelo said, “The great danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low and hitting the mark.”  The Bigger Game is more than making a living, it’s about creating an impact.

Play the Bigger Game if you:

  • Want to have a more positive impact with your family, work, community or organization
  • Yearn for meaningful work that matters
  • Long to be more innovative
  • Seek to be more collaborative
  • Hunger for a change but aren’t sure what sort of change
  • Are looking for more than an “okay” life or a business-as-usual existence
  • Want to take responsibility and direct your destiny
  • Are ready to become a leader
  • Have had enough of sitting in the stands as an observer


Below is the 2-day training description.
