The Seven UPs of Happiness +

In this wise & witty new keynote and book, author and culture consultant Scott Christopher shares the SEVEN UPs that everyone—leaders and staff–should master to happily ‘manage at work.’ From dealing with change (Suck It UP) and employee recognition (Give It UP) to handling generational (Grow UP) and morale (Cheer UP) issues, Scott shares the funDUHmentals of felicity for managing at work or just managing at work.

As a long-time actor, humorist and ‘everyman,’ Scott’s presentations and books are renowned for getting to the heart of the matter; sharing simple business-relevant concepts with lots of laughs. --

People People: Learning to Put "People First" & Why You Should Even Care +

In an increasingly competitive business climate, People People provide more tangible value to a company than ever before.

Why?

As constantly-improving technology dehumanizes relationships and communications–allowing ‘users’ to hide behind their e-personas–People People lift their organizations above the competition by refusing to lose touch with humanity.

  • They prefer a phone call over text.
  • A face-to-face chat over an email.
  • A handshake over a ‘poke’ or ‘nudge.’

Most of today’s ‘best’ companies rely heavily on the human touch to help differentiate their market brand, their public image and their employee culture.

In People People best-selling author and speaker Scott Christopher (The Levity Effect) explains the four fundamental attributes (C.A.R.E.™) of People People, how to become a true Type III People Person, why ‘People First’ organizations excel, and how to do it.

Sharing a mix of business cases, research data and compelling stories, Scott builds a convincing case that winning organizations are flush with People People and that ‘nice guys’ really do finish first: People People are healthier, wealthier, happier and live longer than their less-caring cohorts. The simple truth is that being a People Person is less about being good WITH people, as being good TO people. --

The Daily Carrot Principle
Simple but powerful employee recognition that aligns with business strategies and pushes performance.

The Levity Effect: A Safe Bet for Risky Businesses +

The realization of safety initiatives, as with any workplace goal, is in the hands of leaders. Poor safety compliance, like poor performance, is merely a symptom of poor leadership and culture. So, how do leaders at any level INSPIRE safety? How do they COMMUNICATE safety? How do they deliberately mold a workplace where people CARE about safety, or anything else, for that matter?

It’s called The Levity Effect and it’s not just about throwing parties and riffing with jokes (although a ‘sense’ of humor is an absolute must.) It’s more about lightening up. Levity is defined by three umbrella concepts: latitude, attitude and gratitude.  Things like trust, respect, accountability, communication, recognition, and teamwork all contribute to creating a work culture where people actually care about and carry out goals, strategies and initiatives — like safety.

Safety on Set

  • Hollyweird and famous injuries
  • Personal stories of filmed mishaps
  • A humorous (but true) review of current workplace injury trends

Leadership and Culture

  • What employees REALLY want
  • Workplace management done wrong
  • The real reasons TOP employees perform
  • Trusting teams

What is LEVITY?

  • Defined
  • Latitude, Attitude and Gratitude
  • Inspiring examples of LAG
  • The business relevance of LAG

Why LEVITY?

  • Data/statistical review
  • Serious” industries and LEVITY case samples
  • Powerful stories of recognition

A Culture where people CARE

  • Examples of good/bad Communication
  • The refreshing odor of Authenticity
  • Appreciation and Respect
  • Enjoyment is a crucial component

The keynote is characterized by its adherence to a ‘practice what you preach’ philosophy. In other words, the presenter is hilarious and the audience laughs A LOT. There is audience interaction and enough laugh-out-loud, off-the-cuff humor to drive home the point that levity at work is serious business. --

The Anxiety Solution: Helping Employees Be More Calm, Clearheaded & Focused +

Scott Christopher teaches leaders how to manage the most anxious generation.

Few leaders worry about how to alleviate it, but anxiety is crippling the performance of the people we manage — especially younger employees. It’s affecting productivity, leading to ghosting and burnout.

In his keynote, Christopher, co-author of The Levity Effect: Why It Pays to Lighten Up with Adrian Gostick, offers tactics for managers to help their employees deal with anxiety at work. He helps leaders better understand when employees are hiding anxiety and offer solutions to alleviate much of the unhealthy stress their people may have without losing productivity and performance.

From this keynote, leaders will learn how to tackle issues such as:

  • Overload (how less can become more)
  • Stagnation (the need for growth and development)
  • Uncertainty (how to turn “what should I do” into “will do!”)
  • Intimidation (how to motivate without the stick)
  • Exclusion (how to instill an ethic of inclusion and support in a team) --
