RECHARGE HR - LEAD - November 12, 2015
Anyone can perform well when everything goes right. The real test of you and your organization is how you react when things go wrong – and they will! These make-or-break moments are the "Dings!" of life. Handle them well and you come out looking like a rock star. Handle them poorly and you can end up adding unnecessary stress, difficulty, and complication to your life.
This hilarious and energetic program will show you how to stop fearing and hating change and how to use the power of improv comedy to improvise, adapt, and innovate – no matter what happens!
If things go 100% as planned for you every time, then you can skip this session; otherwise, attend and learn how to reflexively respond to the unexpected in a way that reduces stress, improves productivity, and gives you the skills to manage change.
By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
1 – Reduce stress and increase productivity by focusing on what they can control and letting go of the rest
2 – Find opportunities within unexpected setbacks to get ahead, rather than behind, when things change or go wrong.
3 – Become leaders and innovators by creating meaningful change instead of just responding to it.
Avish Parashar is an energetic and humorous speaker who uses his 20+ years of experience performing, teaching, and studying improv comedy to show organizations and individuals how to deal with the unexpected quickly, effectively, and with a sense of humor. Avish is the author of, Improvise to Success!, and the Amazon best-seller, Say 'Yes, And!'. He has also created dozens of other products on applying improv skills to business and life. Weaving together humorous stories, jokes, audience interaction, and improv comedy games, Avish keeps the audience engaged while imparting a key lesson: Planning is Important, but Improvising is Essential! No matter how well you plan, things will go wrong, surprises will arise, and the Universe will throw you a curveball. Your success and sanity are directly related to how you respond these challenges. By the end of one of Avish's presentations you will have key tools to flow with all that life throws at you. Avish has spoken to the very creative (actors and directors), the very uncreative (accountants), the very casual (college students), and the very business-like (sales professionals). The end result is always the same - smiles, laughs, and a new way of looking at life and business.
