No PowerPoint presentations... only powerful experiences! Chad brings his creative background (MA, BA, SAG/AFTRA) to groups looking for passion, excitement and value in his two signature keynotes:
SMASH THE BOX
TRANSFORMS THE WORKPLACE! Negativity is replaced by optimism and passion, complacency is offset by idea generators and focus is shifted from “me” to “us”. This entertaining and thought provoking keynote address allows your audience to see and experience the importance of creativity in the workplace.
Audiences learn how to SMASH the 4 Walls of a MENTAL BOX that stifle creativity, innovation and inspiration in the workplace. Walls include:
1st Wall- Perfectionism
2nd Wall- Negativity
3rd Wall- Judgment
4th Wall- Fear
Audiences will also be empowered to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX by:
* 3-D Listening- Getting the focus off of ourselves and onto others
* Ruining the Take- Embracing being wrong, making mistakes and failing as a means of eradicating fear and anxiety
* Using the “Yes And” technique- Saying “yes” to opportunities and keeping the creative process alive
* 3-D Living- Engaging all the senses to perform up to one's peak ability
THROUGH THE EYES OF A LEADER
SEES LEADERSHIP DIFFERENT! Attendees learn the art of improvisation in the workplace to make spontaneous decisions with thoughtful consideration. This interactive keynote address puts its group in the middle of the action by allowing them to participate in techniques taken from the theater that focus on creative leadership. THROUGH THE EYES OF A LEADER challenges the inner critic, the suppression of emotions and the concept of rigid and stoic leadership found in working America.
Groups uncover the CREATIVE LEADER WITHIN by focusing on their:
* Inner Dialogue- Silencing one's inner critic
* Congruence- Connecting the mind, voice and body
* Authentic Excitement- Raising one's energy level to inspire and motivate
* Connection- Authentically connecting with the thoughts and feelings of others
* Flexibility- Improvising within a set of constraints
* Owning One's Space- Through proper posture one learns how to command one's space
