Applied positive psychology, 

laughter and joy


Recent studies out of Harvard found that happy employees are successful employees, not the other way around...joy increases employee productivity and satisfaction.


“A mind that is stretched by new experiences can never go back to its old dimensions.”  

  Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.                


Joy is not just a mood. It’s a way of life and a work ethic. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive. This isn’t just an empty mantra. This discovery has been repeatedly born out by rigorous research in psychology and neuroscience, management studies, and the bottom lines of organizations around the globe


In the human design, we are hardwired for joy from birth to old age.  


When you observe children engaged in imaginary play, ​they are in an elevated brain state. They are unafraid to take risks and make mistakes. That’s part of the JOY of learning, creativity, discovery and innovation. As adults, we need to re-learn how to do this, to replicate and cultivate this optimal “child-like” learning state.​ 


In this workshop prepare to laugh, laugh, laugh your way to accelerated learning, good health, good communications, good will and good fun!  



What you will learn:


  • Align with a positive attitude and learn new tools for increasing true enduring joy

  • Develop a deeper self awareness and understand how to use your signature strengths to your advantage

  • Laugh, laugh, laugh and laugh some more!!! Breathe, relax and reduce stress.

  • Uncover limiting beliefs that inhibit your success and rewire new positive thought patterns that increase effectiveness and productivity

  • Build authentic connections and better team synergy through laughter and joy

  • Positively impact others and build positive relationships that lead to win-win

  • Learn to create an optimal learning environment and “happy” work culture that supports creativity, innovation and visioning


innovation and creativity

Innovation and Creativity:  Strategies for Breakthrough Insights


The significant challenges we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.  - Albert Einstein


We think of innovation as using the imagination to create something new in the world. Creativity comes into play wherever you have the opportunity to generate new ideas, solutions, or approaches. And we believe everyone should have access to that resource.

In any industry or organic system, innovation is synonymous with evolution and growth, renewed health, increased bottom line, and dynamic relationships.  Without movement forward, energy becomes stagnant, markets collapse, goals remain unrealized and relationships fall apart.  Joy Breaks Barriers Innovation and Creativity Workshops will provide tools that reinvigorate well being, create a culture of trust, open the doorway into new perceptions, new solutions and "aha" insights. 

What you will learn:


• Learn a seven stage process of creative development and illuminate your vision and goals

• Integrate 7th Sense Strategies for breakthrough techniques to coach yourself and others to “Aha!”moments

• Develop the tools to explore your own creative process: observation, quieting the internal critic, generating ideas, insight, action

• Learn techniques to eliminate limiting beliefs and expand boundaries of what’s possible

• Introduce innovative strategies for discovering new uncontested markets

• Discover your innate cognitive processes of divergent and convergent thinking

• Maximize the connection between courage and creative thinking

• Apply tools and techniques to real problems, challenges and opportunities

• Practices and guidelines that create an innovative work environment


global diversity training and teambuilding 

If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together…

An African proverb 

What unites us is far greater than what divides us  

---US President John F. Kennedy

The world economy is exploding. During the past decade, attention to diversity has grown exponentially in the U.S. and in organizations around the globe. The exigencies of an increasingly multiethnic, multicultural, bi-gender and LGBT labor force have led more and more corporations, governmental, nonprofit agencies, and educational institutions to realize the need to bridge cultural differences and build awareness.

As humans, we are essentially social creatures, and so, the quality and nature of our partnerships are the most definitive measure of our success. Building authentic relationships are the cornerstone of any solid, enduring model of building strong teams and modeling impactful leadership.

The goal of our Joy Breaks Barriers Global Diversity Training and Teambuilding workshop is to build teams that honor the unique identities of individual differences and maximize cooperation, collaboration and productivity.

  • Understand the subtle ways stereotypes and bias influences our perceptions and contribute to discrimination

  • Reinforce the ability to communicate cross culturally in both listening and speaking - learn about the different cues of Chinese and African language styles

  • Deal more effectively with conflict and problem solving  

  • Develop a deeper self awareness and understand how you impact others

  • Improved confidence and ability to empower, influence, close sales, and negotiate for results

  • Develop peer coaching skills that empower senior executives, managers, employees to work as a team
