Audiences will learn the "4 Secrets for SMASHING the box" which will allow them to not only think outside the box... but SMASH it! Groups will focus on the 93% of communication (non-verbal) rather than the 7% of communication (verbal). And once the box is SMASHED, groups will discover that one thing stands between them and being a creative leader- their mindset.

Be prepared for a one of kind experience that is high energy, interactive, humorous, and value packed! Programs include:

“Smash the Box”

Don't Just think outside the box... Smash it!

SMASH THE BOX by transforming your work environment into a culture of innovation! “Smash the Box” creates culture of innovation where walls are removed, judgment is suspended, focus is sharpened, and team work is exemplified. Groups that create cultures of innovation turn ideas into actions and become the game changes in their respected industries.

“Mindsets”

Don't Just Be a Leader... Be a Creative Leader

Only one thing stands between you and being a creative leader… It's your mind set! You have the ability to successfully think, look, and act like a creative leader. Become a creative leader by challenging your inner dialogue (Think), improving your physicality (Look), and using the art of improvisation as a weapon in working America (Act). Change your mindset and think, look, and act like a leader.

“Words Mean Nothing”

Focus on the 93% of communication... Not the 7%

“Words Mean Nothing” focuses on the way we communicate non-verbally which includes our gestures, facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice.  By improving the way we communicate non-verbally we will communicate more clearly, effectively, and avoid miscommunication.  Become a master communicator by matching your non-verbal communication skills with your verbal communication skills.

Chad took the time to learn more about us and tailored his presentation just for our group. Chad is professional, talented and accommodating. We held our team retreat outdoors on an unseasonably hot and humid day. This is not the norm for Chad, who usually works indoors. But Chad is a trooper. He not only came out to speak with our group on that warm day, but he arrived early and totally prepared. I would highly recommend Chad.
