Love Your Weird

How Can You Foster More Creativity and Imagination in Your Organization?

We’ll spend time taking a look at your audience’s five-year-old selves. What lit them up? What did they want to be when they were older? How can they tap back into that unbridled joy and creativity to spur real growth at work?

How Can You Build an Authentic Workplace Culture That Doesn’t Look Weird?

Before there was weird, there was the Old English term WYRD — which spoke to a person’s power to control their own destiny in wonderful ways. We’ll dig into that connotation, use it to help your audience remember their uniqueness, and offer transformative ways to apply it into their work and personal lives.

How can You Cultivate Generosity, Collaboration, and Leadership Throughout Your Organizational Culture?

Using the hyper-customized research that our team’s already done on your organization, we’ll share perspective shifts, foster creativity within the audience, and invite your people to step into a space where they feel comfortable loving their weird.
