James Songster brings years of experience with corporate program delivery and training, and staff and organizational development for Walt Disney World. It is no wonder that he is so frequently asked to share the lessons that he has learned Why? Because Training and Development does NOT have to be boring to be impactful. It just doesn't make sense, Why are so many business seminars boring and tedious? No one engages with boring and tedious. Boring and tedious kills energy, enthusiasm, and creativity. Conversely, I too have experienced engaging seminars and workshops that are too often facilitated by individuals with extensive backgrounds in ENTERTAINMENT but without "real world" job experience. Lots of theory, but a lack of traditional job experience. All icing, no cake. So, I decided to do something about it. Throughout this 4 hour seminar you will experience interactive learning techniques that will maximize your connection with the Learning points. Within this seminar I illustrate important concepts with humor and by performing magic effects to make the principles entertaining and memorable. Every participant will leave this Leadership Retreat with an improved set of tools to improve their Leadership Effectiveness and and empower their team!
