Communication: How to Use Humor and Creativity in Your Message to Breakdown Barriers, Reduce Stress, Make the Workplace Fun
International Speaker, Best-selling Author and Founder of The Cody Byrns Foundation for Burn Survivors
Effective communication is arguably the most important tool that we have as humans. The workplace is no exception to this premise. Outstanding communication can land a person their next sale, acquire a client, raise a round of funding, or just building a new relationship. Humor, one of the most popular forms of communication, is not often paraded around the workplace, but it should be from its unexpected slew of benefits. According to Harvard Business Review, every chuckle brings with it a host of business benefits, such as accelerated rapport building, decreased stress levels, and increased levels in productivity. Cody Byrns has spent over a decade entertaining thousands of people countrywide, to elementary school students, to live television crews. During this journey, he learned that communication, in just about any form, works better when there is humor. This program will explore ways on how people can do simple things to add that extra chuckle to drive home an essential point. Anyone can be funny, it’s just knowing how.
- Learn what makes something funny and other things fall flat.
- Discover what are the necessary components to create a good joke.
- Explore the different ways on how to integrate humor into boring presentations
There will be a live digital Q & A session on zoom after the event with Cody so make sure you get your questions ready!Read more
Very influential and effective, Cody Byrns is an internationally-recognized speaker and a number one best-selling author. In May of 2013, Cody’s life was drastically changed. While stopped at a red light on the highway, Cody was rear-ended by a box truck that failed to stop. As a result, he was considered dead until first responders saw his hand move. He received many injuries that day, including severe burns to almost 40% of his body. After years of countless surgeries and rehabilitation, Cody has chosen to not allow his scars to keep him bound in bitterness and defeat. Instead, he uses his story to uplift others.
His goal is to help people live free from the bonds of scars (physical and emotional), equipping others with the proper steps to walk out of their past hurt and defeat, and run towards their God-given potential. As a thought leader, he speaks worldwide to provide relevant, applicable, and thoughtprovoking messages. Thousands of people have been impacted by Cody’s story and outlook on life. From school students to business leaders, his presentations have been received by many.
Be prepared to have an experience that will motivate you to move out of bondage into a life of freedom!
In addition to his speaking career, in 2016, Cody founded his own non-profit burns foundation that has been able to help multiple survivors recover. To learn more about this foundation please visit TheCBFoundation.org.
