Leadership Masterclass: Laughology

This interactive, fun and informative full day workshop will give people a toolkit for thinking differently as well as explore how to use FLIP it thinking, a toolkit for facing challenges and change. FLIP is a way to help yourself and others look at situation in a different light. It is used as trigger word to engage alternative thinking (How might we flip this?) and broken down it uses shift questions and techniques to help individuals and teams think and behave differently in the moment.

Aims and Objectives
