Building happy teams

Training workshop for organisations

TEAM BUILDING

  • Understand personalities
  • Team cohesion
  • Reinforce identity
  • Improve effectiveness
  • High performance

  • Managers
  • Leaders
  • All Teams

  • Two hour intro
  • Half-day
  • Full-day

Teams that don’t gel become fragmented. Conflict and division can arise and relationships can break down. Team cohesion can make or break an organisation and managing an unhappy team can be timely. A team that is fragmented can mean the customer or stakeholder loses out, vital information is missed and ideas don’t develop.

A happy, motivated team, working together with a shared vision and a clear direction however, will be more productive, creative and innovative. Happy teams record less absenteeism, give more discretionary effort and are more likely to remain loyal, working for you and your organisation. Not everyone will always get on, but understanding each other and celebrating strengths and differences is more desirable and productive than division.

It was the best team building session that gave me food for thought and lots of take aways after. It was great to see a mix of new and existing team members

I really enjoyed the day and helped strengthen the team’s engagement and culture

Using psychological research and neuroscience, we help leaders and individuals understand their own working and thinking styles and identify their strengths and the strengths of others. This opens the door to improved teamwork, leadership, customer relationships, creativity and problem-solving. This fun, enlightening and dynamic workshop creates a deeper understanding of your team’s dynamic and encourages delegates to expand their ability to motivate others and communicate effectively.

BUILDING RESILIENCE AND POSITIVITY:
FLIP-IT THINKING SKILLS

  • Increase wellbeing
  • Promote engagement
  • Reduce absenteeism
  • Improve retention
  • Increase adaptability

  • Managers
  • Leaders
  • All Teams

  • Keynote
  • Two hour intro
  • Half or full-day
  • Transformation or training programme

Transformation, managing workloads and facing challenge are some of the trickiest things to get right. Most leaders and managers will have been in a situation where teams or individuals feel helpless and struggle with these things, choosing to focus on the negatives. This leads to a range of difficulties, including low motivation, disaffection and lack of engagement.

If you can’t adapt as an organisation, you can’t progress. The best and most productive organisations are the ones where people are encouraged to find the positives in situations rather than fear challenge and fall into patterns of catastrophic thinking. Dealing with change positively is a skill. It develops resilience. Organisations with the ability to do this, record better levels of wellbeing and productivity. Resilient humans are happier and healthier.

I loved the whole session. Everyone was laughing the whole way through. However, I also enjoyed some of the theory behind it all and will really try to use some of the knowledge in my day to day life.

Great session which resonated with the theme. The presenter was engaging, amiable and knowledgeable. Made the audience feel at ease and happy to participate. The deliver was effective and engaging and the FLIP it thinking model for seeing things differently is helpful in every aspect of life

Resilience and positive mindset can be learned, and Laughology was the first UK L&D consultancy to develop an effective model to help people do this using the proven science of humour and laughter as a cognitive tool. We call this process FLIP, and it forms the basis of our popular Building resilience and positivity. FLIP-It thinking skills workshops. Our FLIP methods enable people to be more optimistic, adaptable and flexible. They help individuals gain a clearer view of future events and influence others in a positive and upbeat way

CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE THINKING SKILLS FOR PROBLEM-SOLVING

  • Increase innovation
  • Positive problem-solving
  • Enhance creativity
  • Promote autonomy

  • Managers
  • Leaders
  • All Teams

  • Two hour intro
  • Half or full-day
  • Transformation or training programme

In the modern commercial landscape, the disruptor is king and fundamental change can happen in any sector at any time. Touch screens, Uber and austerity are just a few examples of new developments that have had huge impacts on the organisations affected by them. And that impact is not always good – you only need to look at Blackberry, London black cabs and local authority budgets to see what can happen.

Problems come in many shapes and sizes; expansion, contraction, lack of budgets and resources, new competition, personnel challenges, mergers, acquisitions and transformation. All organisations face them eventually, and to cope and conquer they need their people to be innovative and creative problem-solvers. Unfortunately, these are frequently cited as key skills lacking in today’s workplaces.

We're feeling the love!

The facilitator was great, broke down barriers and ensured everyone got involved with the very high energy levels of the presentation, successfully managed to bring some quite reserved people out of their comfort zones.

It was the best session I’ve ever attended. The interactive aspects and exercise to create a product to make us think outside the box were brilliant and I could see how I could use them back in work.

Our industry-leading workshop aims to address this deficit and give delegates a ground-breaking perspective. It looks at humour as a creative thinking style and investigates how neoteny - the mental agility and playfulness of childhood and its relationship to imagination and innovation - is essential for problem solving.

Delivered in a dynamic, interactive style by experts in positive psychology and the neuroscience of learning, the workshops uses techniques such as improvisation and play to enhance creative thinking styles. It encourages innovation and learning and delivers sustainable, tangible techniques for greater achievement and success.

Organisations can waste countless hours of time and effort on overblown meetings or courses which have no structure or clear objective. Worse still, these resource-zapping events can be hijacked by competing personalities who turn them into talking shops or a battle of wills. The result is lack of motivation and engagement and a wasted opportunity for learning. Master the art of facilitation, however, and you can deliver inspiring learning events, productive meetings and presentations which will capture the imagination and deliver your message effectively and succinctly. Learn to manage groups effectively and you gain the ability to bring them together and enable them to be the best they can.

Brilliant, great, fun… Never laughed so much on a training course… Engaging and thought provoking… Good fun, very memorable and great information that will definitely help back in the workplace.

Great. The presenter really motivated everyone and has enthused them to already start using these techniques in their daily work. Many of the participants have raved about how much they enjoyed the course and how useful they found it.

Our Creative Facilitation workshops explore scientific and creative ways to engage audiences on an emotional, positive level. Delegates will gain skills in communication and audience management with insights on how to deliver information memorably to motivate learners to do things differently or change behaviours. Full of enlightening insights into best practice for creating content that hooks people in and resonates, this workshop will help you save time, deliver your message and hone effective, engaging delivery techniques.
