PROFESSIONAL & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS

Be better at stress. Become awesome leaders. Build engaging teams. Create positive, fun workplace cultures.

Mental health and the negative effects of chronic stress are serious business.

We take conscious play, mindful laughter, intentional fun and ‘happiness at work’ just as seriously.

‘Happy is the NEW Productivity’ and it’s time to get back to the basics.


ABOUT US...
Based in Toronto, Canada, our extensive experience delivering innovative laughter and mindfulness-based workshops and presentations for the past decade provides us with a deep understanding of the benefits of positivity and happiness in the workplace.

Over decades of research have now shown that happiness is not just a subjective emotion. The latest science shows happiness as the frequency and balance of positive versus negative emotions that can be improved with practical skills, tools and effort.

Our mission is to help create awareness that sustainable ‘happiness at work’ is achievable with simple skills that can be learned, taught and practised in a fun, professional and engaging manner. We help to empower organizations and their employees with the knowledge and skills required to improve their well-being and to start creating a more positive and fun workplace environment. By finding the Work-Laugh balance, we believe that practising sustainable happiness improves personal well-being, professional productivity and organizational culture. That’s a win-win-win!

OUR APPROACH...
LBSR-Science
We do not laugh because we are happy, we are happy because we laugh.
Our presentations and workshops are 100% evidence and science-based; however, this does not mean they are dry and boring: we always strive to deliver them in a professional, engaging and experiential manner. Each of them is a unique balance of mindful, experiential and fun exercises and science-backed learning:

Laugh-and-Learn

• Innovative laughter and mindfulness-based exercises for a fun group and individual practice of the latest cutting-edge science-backed stress and well-being management techniques. An instant vacation!

• Formal and informal presentations of the latest and most important research-based findings in the fields of Positive Psychology, Laughter-Based Stress Reduction, Neuroscience, Mindfulness Meditation and the Science of Happiness at Work.

Why laughter? Because applied positive psychology, mindfulness and happiness in the workplace are contagious, help employees relieve/manage stress and create a positive environment. Plus, sustainable happiness is simply fun to practise while learning.
