Coming Soon: Laughter Professors on ITV!

There is great focus on making Britain happy. Government and news channels are constantly on the look-out for new ways to increase the experience of ‘feeling happy’ and these approaches are being questioned on TV, radio and in the newspapers.

I was recently invited to ITV’s daytime show, Alan Titchmarsh Show, to give the audience in the studio and more importantly at home a demonstration of Laughter Yoga. UnitedMind has trained people around the globe as Laughter Yoga Leaders, and we got together a team of six laughter-ready Laughter Professors who ventured into the ITV Studios in London.

Please watch as we go on air on 8th November 2012 at 3pm on the ITV Alan Titchmarsh Show. It will be brief and hopefully fun!

It may give you an idea of how Laughter Yoga and Laughter Therapy can benefit you personally as well as in your workplace.Laughter Yoga, laughing for no reason impacts all areas of life and brings balance into perceptions, views, stress, challenges, mismatched communication, perfomance, teamwork, confidence, trust, exclusion and inclusion, absenteeism and many other daily challenges we face as individuals and in the workplace.

Gibberish Talk – non-verbal communication!

Conflicts often occur when there mis-communication, lack of communication, aggressive behaviour, bullying, misunderstood communication, human errors, and any other challenge in teamwork that most workplaces face on a daily basis.

The easiest way to cope with these situations is to stop talking and start listening. However, it is most likely that talk will continue and more upsets will follow.

Gibberish build bridges between people instead of create ridges that separate people even more. It is a non-verbal way of communicating in a non-threatening way where improvisation and drama is of great improtance – just like in real life!

The Gibberish Workshop is an essential yet unrecognised tool for team building, conflict resolution as well as presentation skills and confidence boosting.

Any management team and any organisation – and anybody who is a parent or working with young people – can benefit from learning a new language of understanding… Gibberish!

Full details of the Certified Gibberish Training is listed on UnitedMind’s website. Please get in touch for details of Gibberish in the workplace.
