The answer to every problem runs through each one. Can you guess the common thread?

 

Connection.

 

That’s what my work with you is ultimately about. The tools, tips, and training that have made work more effective, efficient, and enjoyable for 20K+ people in 125+ countries all come down to bringing some much needed human connection.

It’s what will make the difference for you between organizational gridlock and efficiency.

It’s what will open your eyes to the hundreds of ways to approach any seemingly impossible problem. (Yes, even that one.)

It’s what will allow you to teach in ways that get people excited and engaged about the information instead of the doughnuts you bribed them with to attend.

And it’s what will allow you, your team, and your organization to have an impact — instead of getting bogged down in bureaucracy, mired down in misunderstandings, and caught up conflict.

In a world that’s constantly changing, the way to survive is for you to connect, to bridge, to belong, to be human.

 

You might think this is no laughing matter and it's got to be no fun doing this work ... but you’d be wrong.

Find out why laughter is the foundation of everything I do right here.

 

 

Same old questions = same old answers. If you want to get out of indecision and into innovation, you have to shake things up.

I met Lee-Anne Ragan at the social safari innovation. Her passion, knowledge and skills attracted me to want to be close to gain this knowledge and expertise on the issues affecting Africa.

After I had observing her skills I was motivated to stop complaining, observing and begin doing something for my community. As result I have co-founded a number of organizations aimed at elevating poverty and raising voices of the most marginalized in the community.

Working with Lee-Anne has given me the closest thing to a superpower I've ever had. Months after my training with her, I find myself still using the tools and techniques she taught me for business planning, perspective shifting, and seeing your own blind spots on a weekly basis.
