“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct.”
— Carl Jung

Lumination is a highly interactive coaching and development tool. Designed as a board game, it may be played with between 2 – 6 players and can be facilitated or used as a standalone game. It may also be used as a tool for one to one coaching.

See Leadership Coach Kish Modasia share her experience of using Lumination with a client


Each player begins Lumination by identifying a question they have about life, work or career. On throwing the dice players move their counter around the Lumination board. The game works through coaching style questions and interaction between players, which are prompted by cards selected during play. Insights and actions are shared throughout the game.

Unlike most games Lumination is not about winning or losing. Each player addresses their own question as part of a shared learning experience.

Who can play?

Anyone who wants to gain clarity on an individual issue, much as someone would bring an issue to a coaching session or action learning set.

If you are a coach, coach trainer or L&D specialist, you can use Lumination to generate a rich learning experience for your clients, trainees or staff. Lumination is ideal for team away days and to support the development of coaching skills as part of coach training, accreditation and supervision.

It can also be used as an experiential introduction to coaching and as a tool for ongoing coaching support.
