The C-Suite isn’t always “sweet,” right? Of course, it’s a great place to be, but it’s a big responsibility as well. Today’s leaders are expected to be good at everything. (No pressure!) Giving speeches, making presentations, keeping the team motivated, addressing stockholders, monitoring internal memos, overseeing social media presence, making the keynote address at the annual retreat, et al. (Other than that, there’s really not much to do.)
Some CEOs embrace these tasks eagerly, while others look forward to these duties the same way they look forward to their nephew’s third-grade violin recital. In other words, something that needs to be tended to, but is often quite painful.
And here’s the undisputable fact: employees, board members, clients, and potential clients alike are always drawn to information that’s presented with warmth and humanity. And the best way to do that is with the smart use of HUMOR. That’s where we come in!
Maybe you’re looking for a slick, entertaining short film to open your annual sales convention, to grab everyone’s attention immediately and kick things off with a bang.
Perhaps you’d like to be part of a live “skit” with some of your fellow leaders, to make a point about what your organization offers to clients, in a fun, offbeat, and memorable way.
Or maybe you’re simply looking for some funny lines to add to an important speech ---along with a bit of coaching on how to present those lines --- to make sure people pay attention to the useful information you’re presenting.
Whatever your needs, we can teach you how to utilize your strengths, (and even how to utilize your weaknesses! ) in order to bring your leadership talents to the very highest level. Give us a call, and let us tell you how we can help! (Unless it’s a company-wide violin recital, in which case, even we can’t help you 😊)
