Employees at RTI International learned new skills while refreshing mind and body at our Invigoration Station yesterday. As you might imagine, we don’t have the traditional health fair booth - people expect to see massage therapists and chiropractors, but not skill toys!
We love watching the initial reactions to our interactive station from “oh yay - this looks like fun” to the skeptical look of people wondering why there’s a table of “kid stuff” or those with the “I’m too uncoordinated” mindset. We quickly adapt our method of engagement to meet people where they are and help shift mindset when needed. For example, one RTI employee started out doubtful, but after playing with the kendama told me “Wow, I really had to focus on it which made me forget about everything else I was worrying about. I feel better now.” Success!
