No, in fact, less is more. Those who claim not to be funny are often the funniest to others. Humor is best derived from seeing the truth and understanding how it lands with others. Think Sam Eagle, Oscar the Grouch or your mother in law. When we get the next Chris Rock or Sarah Silverman in these sessions, we sometimes need to do 'regression' training to tame this. So, consider yourself lucky if you are not this. People crave everyday laughter to build long-term bonds, get stuff done and relieve tension. That's what we offer.
Absolutely, it's a mandate. Like with most trainings and immersions, they don't land well if they don't tackle current challenges and attributes in your workplace. We would never send an eccentric used car salesman away with jokes about working in a chocolate factory, although maybe that solves the mystery of why Willy Wonka dressed like that. That's the point of our included assessment in all offerings. We review the plan with you before starting and adjust as needed. If you are not happy, we are not happy.
We have been management consultants that have been leading and inspiring organizations since 1998. (Don't do the math!) We have over 13,000+ hours effecting positive and mostly humorous change with executives, founders, new recruits, sales teams and computer programmers. We have worked with Fortune 5 companies to small to medium sized businesses and one banana stand. Our industry experience ranges from oil and gas to the government to tech-startups to manufacturing. We've worked with Type A and Z to passive-aggressives to pretty much all tested-personality types. We have an art with reading a room or audience and adapting with agility to keep people engaged.
1. Do not bring your laptop. We need participants fully engaged. Almost all humor requires attention whether you are the consumer or deliverer of the joke.
2. Bring concentration, or your best effort at it. See point 1.
3. Bring openness to new optics for a situation, person, process or idea.
4. Bring pictures of your cat. We want to see them. This is just a personal request.
If you have questions about our programs, feel free to send us a message. We will get back to you as soon as we stop debating which way the toilet paper roll should face.
