Event Overview
Lead with Humor and Improvisation
(or How to Survive “Workplace-serious-itis”)
Fun at work? Humor at your desk? Improv in the Board Room? If marketing helps in telling your story and we are supposed to be functioning in teams to accomplish great things at work, why is work so serious? Finding your voice at work, and the humor in it, is so challenging for young leaders. Liysa Callsen will turn that serious journey through a silent world into stories, improv, audience participation, and tips that will give you a fresh perspective on your obstacles, teach you to use humor in life and in business, help you embrace diversity to form stronger teams, and enjoy the art of communicating beyond words.Participants will learn the principles of improvisation which will have a positive effect to advance your leadership skills. An excellent business tool that includes the following

  • Yes and…
  • Gifts to grow communication
  • How to avoid rejecting others; ”hearing” all ideas
  • Learn how to accept suggestions and not view them as criticism
  • Do’s and Don’ts to getting started
  • Practical, inexpensive and easy ideas to productivity with humor

This workshop is for young professionals who want to

  • Get more done while having more fun,
  • Create great team bonding,
  • Improve morale and productivity,
  • Develop their natural leadership abilities, and

Truly lead within their teams, divisions, departments, and organizations!

She is a member of AATH (Say it aloud; it’s fun!) – Association for Applied Therapeutic Humor where she continues to learn more about humor’s serious (?) side (such as why it is so important in business!).
