Mood is the most important factor in determining the way we perceive people and happenings in the outside world, and how we react to them. The good news is: we are all able to create energy that can change our mood, change our attitude and create a contagious environment that leads to healthy, satisfied, high-achieving teams - an inspired workforce! Creative thinking skyrockets. Cooperation soars. Job satisfaction goes through the roof! 

At this session, participants will:

  • Implement strategies for more control on the direction of their environment.
  • Explore techniques to implement appropriate mirth, laughter, celebration and fun in the workplace.
  • Create innovate ways to liberate themselves from stress and dramatically improve morale.
  • Build confidence for creating great relationships.
  • Become a catalyst for creating positive and healthy work environments. 

As leaders, we all need to increase the laughter in our lives so that we can weather life's challenging moments and put everything in perspective. The power of laughter is being rediscovered, particularly in the workplace. It's an innovative way to combat stress, dramatically improve morale, and significantly increase camaraderie and motivation.


Rolande Kirouac  delivers a refreshing and innovative approach to organizational wellness. She believes that leaders who learn to smile and laugh more easily, and more often, foster cooperation, creative thinking, job satisfaction and a workplace where employees want to be. She has co-authored Leadership Gurus Speak Out! and created HA!, a 70-minute Spontaneous Laughter Workout CD. Rolande is a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers, the Chamber of Commerce, Toastmasters and QNET. 

QUEST is a series of information sessions that bridge the gap between business needs and local consulting expertise. Presentations feature a variety of concepts, tools and practices relevant for today's workplace.

This session is presented by QNET in partnership with APICS Winnipeg Chapter and Industry Workforce Development, Manitoba Entrepreneurship Training & Trade
