SPEECH TITLE AND DESCRIPTIONLemons to Laughter
What can the Lemons to Laughter program do for your organization?
• Improved company morale
• Increased productivity
• Better workplace culture
Studies show that fewer than 45% of Americans actually enjoy their work; a decrease of 4% from one year ago. Although the reasons seem vast and varied, there is no disputing that workplace satisfaction is on the decline and has been for the last decade. Tim Gabrielson is changing that; one organization at-a-time.
We hear it on the news, we see it all around us; our economy is struggling, unemployment rates are on the rise, the value of our dollar is on the decline. There are ample reasons for the foul mood we find ourselves in; which follows us into the workplace. Add a challenging project or ill-fated bottom line to the mix and, well, it’s no surprise that our surly dispositions act as contagions until the whole organization is one unhappy, unhealthy, lack-luster environment.
Tim’s unique presentation Lemons to Laughter is one part mind-bending magic, one part hilarious comedy, and one part life-changing message. Simply put; Tim guides the audience through the paradigm shift necessary to position your organization in that ever shrinking minority; one with fully engaged and satisfied staff. Employees will be entertained along the way to embracing intentional decisions to:
the events causing conflict in your life. We all have them. Some of us let them consume us and maintain a constant state of stress; never fully realizing the gifts life has to offer.
your thinking and age-old thought processes. Habits are hard to break; especially bad ones. Dwelling on the negative keeps us from even recognizing the positive in all aspects of life.
to revamp your psyche and respond versus react to all situations creating magical moments in day-to-day interactions that result in only one thing: happiness.
Happiness is a choice. We’re all faced with limitless choices each and every day and any one of them can have either outstanding or catastrophic results. Tim’s presentation provides audience members with a clear decision for results that yield the best life has to offer; both physically and emotionally. He demonstrates how changing one’s outlook in any situation can have a positive impact on all those around with the greatest impact on you. Whether at the workplace or home, Tim’s message has a universal approach to making the best of any situation. Physicians now confirm what we already knew; laughter is good medicine. Tim shows the audience how to infuse laughter into any situation and provides a step-by-step approach to improving one’s life. When a single person makes an intentional effort to change the dynamics at work, it will have a positive ripple effect on everyone in your organization.
Happy employee results include:
• Higher productivity
• Better communication
• The ability to find more creative solutions.
• Improved connections with clients and co-workers
• A fully engaged organization
Ultimately, this leads to an improved work environment resulting in a culture of employee satisfaction and more engaged customers; both internal and external. Bonus – it’s just more fun.
