Play’s the Thing: Using Humor and Fun to Uplift Your Workplace

Lighthearted and playful educators set a tone for creativity and joy in the workplace. Humor frees our brain’s executive function to invent new approaches, solve problems effectively and stay optimistic no matter what. Work need not be the opposite of play. Learn how to restore fun and passion around you to chase the blahs and restore enthusiasm for our invaluable work. Did you know that laughter is the shortest distance between two people, unless humor is being used to harm rather than to uplift? Even when you are at your most worn out, on your last nerve, or ready to bolt for the hills, laughing kindly at yourself can and will uplift you to the balcony of perspective. According to adults-at-play expert, Dr. Stuart Brown, “we become truly powerful people” when we whole-heartedly play at work. What’s holding you back? Perhaps it’s time to kick that to the curb. Your executive function awaits and will thank you plentifully!

Lessons Learned from My Social Work with the Poor in Rural India

After 25 years of corporate life in America, Dr. George set out to improve the socio-economic conditions of the poor in rural India, especially among the 250 million Dalits or the so-called “untouchables” — families who have been living in extreme poverty and indignity for generations and have practically no way out. This mission is now embodied in Shanti Bhavan, a residential school that I started 20 years ago. Dr. George firmly believes that if you give impoverished children the same tools and educational opportunities their wealthier peers have, while modeling for them strong humane values and civic engagement, there is no limit to what they can achieve. This keynote will review the encouraging successes of the children so far. Graduates from the school are now working in multi-national companies like Mercedes Benz, Ernst & Young, Goldman Sachs and Amazon.

They have gone on to help their families rise out of poverty. It is the hope of the Shanti Bhavan community that these young men and women will one day transform their communities and reach out to many more in need, creating a multiplicative impact on poverty and social injustice. The school has achieved worldwide recognition through the acclaimed Netflix film “Daughters of Destiny” which highlights the struggles and remarkable achievements of 5 girls over a 7 year period.

Communication Excellence in Early Childhood Settings: The Journey Upward, Inward and Outward

From the moment we are born one of our strongest desires is to communicate ….. to communicate clearly, coherently and completely. Ken’s work revolves around the ability of a single word or phrase to change the way people behave, with his key premise being that language has the ability to create physiological change resulting in behavioural change. Every time we talk with someone we create or break a bond; we promote the production of neuro-transmitters, hormones, endorphins (and more) in the people we speak with, and ourselves. For many years these elements of neuro-psychology have been applied to the corporate and political world; yet they are equally relevant to our personal lives and to early childhood development.

Consider the power these forms of messaging could have for a child; guiding their early development and setting the scene for the adult that is yet to come. Consider how thirsty a developing mind can be, how each word, each phrase can inform both its present and future choices. Each and every one of us creates our own reality through the morphing of our experiences, ideas and imagination. Let’s discuss how our communication choices can impact on ourselves and our children; helping or hindering their Journey Upward, Outward and Inward.
