Embrace Risk, Manage Change, and Laugh Often

Discover how laughter and humor can work to your advantage when dealing with the seemingly unfunny business of balancing risk and managing change. Learn how flexibility and responsiveness are critical qualities for thriving in a world of ever-accelerating change.

This fun, innovative seminar also explores how the successful use of humor can reduce stress, build morale, and help you lead others through difficult times of change. You will also discover the importance of maintaining a positive attitude and clarifying values when facing change – or when simply pursuing a happier, more satisfying life. Embrace Risk, Manage Change, and Laugh Often also shows you how to develop the skills of a successful problem-solver by using creativity, humor, and divergent thinking.

Use these powerful skills to make positive changes within your organization or within yourself. You will leave this seminar viewing change as a positive challenge rather than something to avoid.

Laughter - The Secret Weapon of Great Leaders

Today’s leadership challenges can make Hannibal’s trip over the Alps seem like a romp in the park. The conflicting pressures of lightning-speed technological advancement, a diverse and multicultural workforce that craves flexibility, and an unpredictable, often unfathomable global economy can leave even the best managers feeling buffeted like dinghies in a hurricane. What’s so funny about that?

Today’s great leaders recognize that yesterday’s leadership styles no longer work. The carrot-and-stick management model is as antiquated as carbon paper and the rotary phone. We must find new ways of leading. Predictability is no longer an option, but with humor you can still build credibility, which is a required quality for becoming an incredible leader! In this presentation, you’ll learn how to use positive and appropriate humor to build a sense of commonalty among a diverse workforce, to illuminate problems and spark creativity. You’ll learn how to establish a rapport that diffuses the tension and stress that can develop in any workplace.

You’ll discover how to use humor to boost energy and productivity, while empowering your staff to actually enjoy their jobs! They may soon be saying TGIM – Thank Goodness It’s Monday!

Hey, That's Not What I Meant!

Even in this technology-driven age, the ability to communicate, and to achieve the desired results, is at the essence of every organization. Effective communication is the driving force behind all changes in attitudes, beliefs, and ultimately behavior. 

Miscommunication, which can cause minor glitches at best and major errors at worst, can flourish in today’s intense and diverse environments. Learn to conquer that negativity. . . with shared laughter. Successful communication can only take place when we understand how our perceptions, attitudes, and values affect how we are viewed by others. Using that knowledge, we can enhance our ability to communicate effectively with all those we encounter. Learn the dynamics of empowering responsibility with all communication.

Discover how to use non-manipulative persuasion and positive humor to cement meaning and increase message retention. With a clear understanding of and appreciation for the mechanics of humor, it’s possible to significantly out-produce, out-perform, and advance beyond the competition. . . and have fun doing it!

Every Day Is a Gift - That's Why They Call It - The Present

We can cherish or regret our yesterdays, we can dream or fear our tomorrows, but we can only live our todays. The one thing we truly have control over is the moment we’re in now. By relearning the child-like skill of living in the present, we’ll renew our joy in life and remember to be grateful for all we have. In that sense,

the here-and-now present truly is a present – an unexpected gift to be carefully unwrapped and savored. Worry – that insidious destroyer of joy, is a byproduct of stress. It’s also a negative investment in the future. Worry robs us of the ability to enjoy the moment and build our reserves of happiness for when we need to call upon it.

In this session, we’ll use humor to alter our perceptions. We’ll discover how to focus on the now and enjoy the moment, and so boost creativity and enhance our physical and emotional well-being, while we banish energy-sapping stress. We’ll explore the proven therapeutic benefits of laughter, which provides an internal aerobic workout while releasing stress-reducing and pain-busting chemicals into the body.
