In a TNT –Time-Numbers-Technology – driven and distracted workplace, stress and conflict are up and attention levels are down. Learn how the Stress Doc’s “Higher Power Humor” can positively impact your culture: productivity, cooperation, and morale. When humor springs from the head and heart, that is, comes from a place of Emotional Intelligence, then humor has the potential to be much more than just a good joke. And this is especially true if a dynamic communicator/leader knows how to play with and strategically connect Emotional Intelligence (EQ) with the Stress Doc’s new concept of “Humor Intelligence” (HQ).
Are you ready to explore the seriously silly, radiant realm of Higher Power Humor ™?
If so, let Mark Gorkin, LICSW, the Stress Doc ™, acclaimed author, speaker, webinar presenter, organizational consultant, and clinical therapist provide you with step-by-step guidance for employing “hands on humor” tools and techniques. Through the Stress Doc’s Get FIT – FUN-Interactive-Thought-provoking – substance and style, you will learn to: a) captivate and inspire an audience — large or small, b) disarm “stress carriers” and touchy conflict situations, c) become a more authentic — fearless and vulnerable — and trust-building role model, and, most importantly, d) understand (and practice) the differences among healing, humbling, and hostile humor; harness the power of self-effacing yet affirming humor.
Seek the Higher Power of Stress Doc Humor… May the Farce Be with You!
This topic is for all levels of employees and management. Increasingly, we understand that the keys to organizational productivity, motivation, and morale involve more than Digital Intelligence. We’ve come to recognize emotional intelligence and stress management, and the importance of awareness and communication.
And now, the Stress Doc is taking this creative consciousness/communication skill set to a new level through Humor Intelligence (HQ) that builds on Emotional Intelligence (EQ). EQ x HQ Synergy, especially for a leader using Self-Effacing Humor, will help grab people’s attention, sustain their engagement, and boost, if not inspire, their belief, commitment, and motivation.
In a world whose pace, uncertainty, and diversity can foster stress and conflict, the ability to playfully yet purposefully see the absurdity in situations, to laugh gently at our own (and with others) flaws and foibles is a hallmark of “Emotional Intelligence". Emotional intelligence in the workplace is a gift that we can bring to solving problems, reducing stress and conflict, reducing false status differences, and helping foster team cohesion and camaraderie.
This emotional intelligence training will benefit all levels of employers and leaders in the organization as it strengthens and provides creative thinking, communication tools and techniques, humor and intelligence.
The Stress Doc will also present “How To” exercises that participants will be able to take back and apply in their companies and organizations.
