Play Your Life: The Speed Coaching Game
The French Way To Happiness and Success: 5 steps in 50 minutes flat with a playful tool.
« Play Your Life »- is a revolutionary tool to practice coaching, and to facilitate personal and organizational growth toward happiness and success, in the fastest and effective way ever: 50 minutes flat! All you need is to trust the « Happy Life Cycle Process » and a game, actually a Speed Coaching Game – « Joue Ta Vie, the game that cares for you! » – suitable for adults and children (8+).
« Play your life » means : being actor of one’s life and willing to take a risk. Playing small doesn’t serve anybody. In fact, not taking a risk is the biggest risk we can take.
This original and playful approach is simultaneously fast, powerful and deeply meaningful simply combining the French focus on “being” with the American art of “doing”.
The actual version of the game and the process comes in English and French.
Play Your Life: The Book and the Readers
With her new book, Fatima is embarking on an international book tour and demonstration of her unique game which utilizes playful images and questions to lead players in discovering their own hopes, dreams and goals.
I love meeting the readers and hear their precious stories and feedback, because as a human family, we are meant to live, grow and perform together. I had a blast meeting Pascale Brady CPCC, PCC, MBA, The Challenge Coach© in Washington D.C., and look forward to what’s next with her and for “Joue Ta Vie” in the USA!
The Fundamentals of Happiness and Success in a Game
Joue Ta Vie® – Play Your life – is a playful application of Positive Psychology with a twist of western philosophy: it includes many fundamental concepts like the power of gratitude, positive emotions and positive relationships, flow, meaning, and accomplishment and uses them all through actions and experiments. The Happy Life cycle is a powerful model that also includes a touch of magic. The best practices are concentrated in it: Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, Non-violent Communication, Transactional Analysis, Systemic Therapy, NLP, Generative Coaching, Positive Psychology and Neurosciences.
Applications are endless: individual sessions, workshops, speed team building, mediation, group support, supervision ….
What does the look like and how it works?
Simple and bold at the same time, the process is game based.
The professional game kit comes with 5 tools which use the power of wording to encourage self-exploration, positive behaviors and growth. For example, with the help of the three decks of cards, players activate both sides of the brain, by-pass logic, and quickly get to what’s really essential.
Who Can Benefit From it?
Great for individuals, children 8+, parents, professionals and organizations.
Teachers, life and business coaches, trainers, therapists, psychologists, counselors, consultants, HR professionals, managers, group leaders use the speed coaching game to facilitate awareness and action, insights and growth.

It’s a fun and casual game that helped me get to the core of what was holding me back in taking some actions that I knew I should take, but I felt stuck. It’s thought-provoking yet casual and light-hearted. It inspired me to take action the next day and I’m moving forward toward my goals. I look forward to having the game handy the next time I want to gain clarity on a next step and engage in some great conversation with friends.
