A Funny Way of Being Serious
People Management Skills
The skilful use of humour in the work place pays instant dividends. It is the perfect way to break tension, it makes you appear more approachable and likeable and in turn the people you are dealing with are more trusting and open to your ideas.
The thought process associated with stand-up comedy forces you to observe the world around you in more detail and often with a fresh perspective, opening your mind to new ideas and allowing you to see the bigger picture.
Once the thought process becomes second nature you will release your subconscious and find that your ability to think on your feet will improve significantly.
More often than not you are judged by your ability to communicate. This maybe how you project your self to others or how quickly and effectively you can communicate your message in face to face meetings. Comedy works in short and crisp chunks and trains you to be precise and to the point.
Almost all presentations are sales pitches of some kind or another, ultimately you are selling an idea you wish to convey to others. To deliver your message with maximum impact you need to be engaging, entertaining and memorable.
Key Opinion Forming
The more people you speak to at any one time and the more often you present the more your personal value increases. As you walk where others fear to tread it will be your message that gets heard most often.
