Corporate Laughter Programs

 

Laughing for no reason (natural laughter does not require comedy or jokes):

 

Workplace stress has doubled since 1985.

Laughter-As Exercise/laughter therapy provides a fun and effective way to upgrade staff performance and even corporate performance.

Harvard Business Review tells us that managers who incorporate fun and levity into their management style earn more and get promoted faster than their contemporaries.

They also have greater influence on group decisions, cope better under pressure and exhibit superior communication and empathy skills.

Salespeople who incorporate fun and laughter into their sales technique sell more.

Teams who incorporate fun and laughter are far more efficient, communicate better, work to a common purpose, and make better use of each individual’s strengths.

By reducing stress levels and teaching better ways to cope with stress, laughter can boost the efficacy of all members of a corporation.

 

LAUGHTER FOR CONFERENCES, SEMINARS, MEETINGS & EVENTS

Event organizers want participants that are active, interested, energized, open to new ideas, and ready to make a great contribution.

In reality, participants often arrive stressed, negative and exhausted. They are removed from their comfort zone, feel their life has been hijacked by the instruction to attend, have had to travel or rush to complete other work to get there, and are generally stressed and out of sorts.

The effects of this stress mean they will have little to contribute as their cognitive abilities, empathy and communications skills, learning ability, innovation and creativity are reduced.

Their negative emotional state means they will tend to shoot down new ideas without consideration.

Starting your event with a laughter session positively transforms participants.

More and more companies are starting their meetings, seminars, conferences or events with laughter and reporting dynamically improved

participation and outcomes.

UPGRADE YOUR BUSINESS: ADOPT FUN & LAUGHTER AS A CORE VALUE

The Levity Effect, a new book by bestseller author Adrian Gostick and Scott Christopher, uses serious science to reveal the remarkable power of laughter and fun in business, and shows how many leading companies use levity to boost their bottom line.

Having fun while you work, or working at a company that values levity, helps to attract and retain the best employees, creates higher levels of employee engagement, sparks innovation and creativity, and contributes to overall success.

The authors show conclusively that laughter motivates employees and makes them more loyal - those who laugh at work stay longer, reducing high staff turnover costs.


THE BOTTOM LINE: laughter is good for business. US companies that rate high on fun and laughter show annual returns 237% higher than Standard &Poor 500 companies (14.16% return compared to 5.97% return for S&P 500).

 

Our programs are designed for companies that want to incorporate fun and laughter as a core value and reap the rewards.
 

A scientific study shows substantial increases in capabilities measured for 8 self-competencies, 3 relational competencies, and role competency (The Journal of Primary Prevention 2007).

These dramatic improvements showed participants changing from ‘average’ to ‘star employees’ having developed new capabilities to successfully cope with change and work under stress.

Improvements in social-emotional intelligence were retained after three months, indicating that changes were permanent.
