The Secrets of Leading InterPlay is a multi-day workshop and a core component of the InterPlay Leader Training Program that leads to becoming a certified InterPlay leader. It is open to those who have completed or are in the process of completing the InterPlay Life Practice Program and have enrolled in the InterPlay Leader Training Program.

The Secrets of Leading provides an overview of the InterPlay® system and covers the underlying structure and philosophy of InterPlay. How are the forms taught? How do they work together? What is the ultimate outcome or effect of using InterPlay forms? How do you decide which forms to use at what times? How do you deal with people you find challenging? The workshop includes presentation, interaction, and play.
