Unbusinessy Workshops & Keynotes Jeffrey Baumgartner at TEDx

I am cheaper than Hillary Clinton, funnier than Fidel Castro and have more hair than Seth Godin. What more could you want in a keynote speaker or workshop leader?

My workshops and talks are just the thing to liven up an overly businessy annual meeting, amuse your team and prepare your colleagues for the totally unexpected. And try as I might, most workshops and talks result in collateral usefulness, in otherwords, in spite of being unbusinessy, they offer a few businessy benefits.

My talks are particularly useful in the dreaded after-lunch slot. People who are laughing are unlikely to fall asleep in their chairs.

You can also find some of my more serious, creativity and innovation workshops and keynotes here.

Here are a few of my offerings:

How to Fake Being a Great Leader

Learning to be a leader takes time, effort and determination. Faking it, on the other hand, is easy!

Keynote: I describe the seven steps to faking leadership with entertaining examples and cartoon slides.

Workshop: I not only describe the seven steps, but participants perform exercises and role-plays to practice the seven steps. Recommended 1/2 day.

Collateral Usefulness: Learning how to fake leadership can provide the audience/participants with tricks for appearing confident, decisive and in control.

How to Be a Jerk

Are you and your team too nice to succeed in business? Have you ever noticed how the office jerks seem to thrive, get the promotions and make the sales while nice people have to make do with second place? It does not need to be this way.

Workshop: How to be a Jerk is ideal for an interactive workshop that involves role-play, improvisation and open discussion. Recommended 1/2 day.

Collateral Usefulness: Sadly, knowing how to be a jerk, understanding why jerks often succeed and knowing how to deal with jerks is far more useful than it should be.

The Dark Side of Creativity

Research has shown that there is a two way correlation between creativity and dishonesty. Creative people tend to be less honest than non-creative people and lying can help people be more creative. Rather than ignore this uncomfortable fact, this workshop or talk aims to exploit it. You and your team will learn all about the surprising links between creativity and dishonesty. In the workshop, you will participate in a number of role-plays in which you must improvise your way through complicated situation with creative lies.

Workshop: The Dark Side of Creativity is ideal for a 1/2 day or full day workshop that involves role-play, improvisation and problem solving exercises.

Keynote: this is an eye-opening, lively and entertaining keynote that entertains, informs and teaches.

Collateral Usefulness: you and your team will learn a number of tricks that will help you think more creatively and solve complex problems better.
