A couple of weeks ago I had Amanda Gore speaking at my first Red Hot Event of the year. Most people know who Amanda is but if you don't, you may like to look her up. Just sayin!! Amanda is a world class international speaker who travels the world speaking to millions of people. She has this ability to touch the hearts of everyone who hears her in a hilarious, real, emotion charged way. She's amazing. You laugh and cry and as you hear what she's saying and think to yourself, 'Yeah, I do that', 'That's ME!'.
Her big focus is spreading the message of Joy around the world. I mean seriously, don't you think we all take things just way too seriously these days? All our problems and stress could quite possibly be as easy as us just learning to lighten up and laugh now and then. Its not rocket science but it can be rocket science teaching people HOW to do this. And that's what Amanda does with precision.
She was talking about 'Joy in the Workplace' and how important that is to create an environment thats happy, fun and most of all productive. As leaders, business owners or employers, the tone we set at work determines the tone of the organisation. It starts with us and filters down. It is of utmost important to bring Joy back into the workplace, allow people to feel valued, acknowledge them for their efforts and celebrate their achievments….including your own.
Watch these videos of Amanda and you'll know what I'm talking about. ENJOY!!!
