Why are frogs so happy?

Because they eat whatever bugs them.  Laughing brings physical, mental, emotional and productivity benefits. Companies in Hong Kong recognize this, and have hired giggle specialists to tackle grumblings about high-stress work environments, including HSBC, Citibank, the Hospital Authority and even the Hong Kong Police (HRinasia.com). 

Studies have also shown that laughter allows blood to pump harder through the body, helping a culture of hearty, happy and hardworking employees! 

This program helps you to recognize what is stealing your joy, and to reframe circumstances to boost creativity, productivity, and overall fulfillment. Our giggle coach will show you how to produce a more nurturing and satisfying work environment using the weapon of laughter. 

Benefits of becoming happier

  • Laugh to gain perspective: laughter increases mental health, gives you a positive outlook on life, and increases emotional resilience
  • Cope with fatigue and negative feelings: have enough emotional strength to do what you love, by increasing health-enhancing hormones and reducing stress-inducing ones through laughter
  • Bond with colleagues through contagious laughter and create synergy
  • Practice habits that help you to improve your health, and increase happiness and life satisfaction
  • Enable a fun and creative culture with laughter 

What are the learning outcomes from the session?

  • Discover how to create a whole new world of opportunities using simple processes to laugh and establish relationships
  • Learn how to use four natural elements to re-invigorate yourself
  • Practice a set of mental exercises to help you cope with negative experiences and unpleasant memories
  • Learn to increase your happiness at work and in your relationships through a set of time-tested strategies
  • Get access to a daily routine happy people practice that helps them become extremely successful
  • Get involved in a set of high-energy laughter therapy exercises that will instantly improve your mood and boost your creativity

For the Coach, it can be draining to work with a client who is making little or no progress. And for the client, the level of commitment & discipline needed to fully engage in the coaching process can be a significant barrier, and challenge, to achieving results.

The way to overcome this challenge is to heighten your own Coaching Presence and develop a deep sense of trust, connection & authenticity.
