Using laughter to support learning is not new. John Cleese, the famous actor pioneered the use of humour in corporate training videos nearly four decades ago. Madan Kataria, the laughter guru pionerred the use of laughing for no reason.
Humour in training and business presentations is becoming increasingly valued as it ensures attention of the participants. Using humour in your sessions is a skill. In our sessions we use the concept of frames. Frames helps you use and reuse the joke in different situations. Over a period of time you learn how to think on your feet spontaneously and that ignites humour.
Great sessions are those that are have spontaneity. When the sessions are light hearted and spontaneous, the results of the training is awesome.
