“Leadership and Laughter”

A Keynote Presentation by Bob Wells and Dave Johnson from Chicken Lips Entertainment



Leadership requires many skills and personal traits, and a healthy sense of humor is high on the list! Filled with fun and healthful laughter, this highly interactive session outlines the value of spontaneity, flexibility, and creativity for successful leaders and their teams. Participants learn about the benefits of improvisational thinking, spontaneous problem-solving and ensuring that ideas keep moving forward. They also learn to use the tools to access incredible new results easily.
