Based on his book, “Laid Off and Crazy Happy - Memoires of a Houseband”, this keynote is the culmination of 40 years of experience and transition. Focusing on the things that make us better at relationships, better communicators, better teammates, better husbands and wives, better parents -- better people, Andy blurs the line between work and play, transforming both.
The problem with most change strategies is that they don't get to the heart of the problem: not changing is really comfortable! Until we really understand the forces at work that create the barriers to effectively manage the changes in our lives, we'll only continue to struggle.
The sources of stress are endless, but they all start with one critical misunderstanding: that they're outside of us. This presentation takes you on a journey through all of the things that we learned in school that mislead us into thinking that we are not responsible for our reactions. The result is nothing less than an entirely different view of everything!
Very few people understand the workings of our creative selves, and school didn't help any. The good news is that we have an infinite capacity, and all we need is a place for it to flourish. This presentation is all about who is creative, (everyone), what it is, why it's confusing, and where and when it works best. The answers will surprise you!
