The Levity Effect: Why it Pays to Lighten Up
This session focuses on how successful people and organizations use fun, humor and ‘lightening up’ to achieve remarkable results. Scott motivates individuals to lighten up their personal style at work and in life using Latitude, Attitude and Gratitude. Inspirational stories and relevant data bolster the case for infusing a life with levity. Attendees learn how their contributions directly impact the morale and engagement of their work peers and help shape organizational culture. It’s the perfect message for companies looking to ignite and excite their workforces while providing a refreshing and hard-earned laugh or six. Additionally, this keynote is appropriate for conference attendees of disparate organizations.
The Daily Carrot Principle: Recognition that Makes a Difference and Drives Results
Simple but powerful employee recognition that aligns with business strategies and pushes performance. Scott Christopher discusses why the carrot principle always applies in the workplace, regardless of our economic situation and gives us a few examples of fun ways that employers can recognize employees for their hard work.
Scott Christopher is co-author of the best selling book The Levity Effect: Why It Pays to Lighten Up and author of the worst selling book Lighten Up: Managing with Mirth Ain’t Rocket Surgery. As the former director of the Carrot Culture, Scott was also a contributing author of the very good selling A Carrot A Day and The Daily Carrot Principle.
As a celebrated author, Scott has traveled the world entertaining and motivating thousands of individuals to get up and leave his presentation, most of them long before it ends.
The main focus of his laugh-a-minute lectures is sharing how levity, humor and becoming more of a ‘people person’ can help you excel in business and at home. Scott practices what he preaches by presenting meaningful data, research, case studies and stories in a relaxed, interactive, hilarious environment.
Scott has been an actor, comedian, TV host and emcee for, well, let’s just say a long time and leave it there. No sense in minimizing his opportunities for work by identifying him with any actual age. Anyway, he’s been entertaining audiences since he was a small boy, playing a woman reporter in his first school play (wig, makeup and a cute skirt).
As an undergrad at BYU, Scott won the prestigious IRENE RYAN award at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., an award annually presented to the nation’s top collegiate actor. In his part-time acting career, Scott has appeared on The Disney Channel, CBS, Fox Kids, Lifetime, The WB and in over 20 films. He was a morning radio personality in Salt Lake City and Monterey, California and has hosted several television shows.
