It's no secret that to be competitive and innovative, your company has to be a great place people WANT to work at. It's getting harder. Creativity and Innovation live at the intersection of courage, trust & connection. These look a lot like humor. No, it's not about telling jokes at the water-cooler. It's cool, HR 😁 While leading tech product & marketing teams by day and working as a comedian by night for 20+ years, I learned: ---The biggest laughs come from trust and connection. ---Laughter builds community. ---The biggest standing ovations come when courage filled the air. When connection was strongest, so was innovation. I got curious: Is this how I get my team to create better storytelling, customer service, productivity? That led me to start my business, write my book, "Stop Boring Me!" about comedy principles for innovation, and, today, advise global teams & senior leaders on braver culture. Trust, connection and courage lead to innovation, stories, comms. Humor & laughter open that door. Leaders, ready for you & your teams to be braver? Let's talk!
