Let’s face it: your people know what to do when it comes to how to treat other people, but they don’t always do it. They don’t need more information or training—they need motivation. This is where I can be helpful: closing the gap between what they know and what they actually do.
My goal is always to create an experience that is meaningful for all. It’s not all content. If audiences are looking at their phones, not listening, and having a hard time focusing, it’s a wasted opportunity for all. But it’s also not all entertainment. They want to be engaged…but they don’t need a comedian.
Engaging in positivity and encouragement is proven to enhance both personal and business relationships. And happier people are more productive, more focused and ultimately more successful in all aspects of life.
Our Vice President made a joke about inter-marriage among families. His family.
When It Comes To Humor, Our VP is An Idiot
“So, I had Cheneys on both sides of the family — and we don’t even live in West Virginia,” Cheney cracked. After pausing for laughter from the crowd, Cheney added, “You can say those things when you’re not running for re-election.”
Well, surprise, surprise! He ticked off more than a few people in West Virginia.
What’s My Point? I don’t even know where to start. But it amazes me that people whose job puts them in front of audiences repeatedly can make this sort of rookie, idiotic mistake. Cheney must speak publicly at least several times a week. And he still doesn’t know how to keep himself out of the (negative) news
- Cheney, take a note:
1. Don’t tell jokes. You aren’t any good at it anyway.
2. Don’t pick on anybody. Because you are speaking to a national audience, don’t pick on any subsets of that audience. And again…while you’re at it, don’t pick on anybody.
3. Thrink it through baby! This one was so easy to avoid.
