I loved the session. I have received feedback from at least 2 people who stated it was in the top 5% of all training sessions they’ve been in...and another person who said it was easily the best training they’d been in. And we’ve been through many.

Andy is an engaging and energizing speaker! We had the pleasure of Andy speaking at several sales meetings last year, speaking to several hundred of our team members during a critical time of change. He was able to convey a message of change and engagement by using his experiences in business and improv to challenge our team to think differently... His style helped reinforce our leadership message and really helped to set a tone of engagement and excitement for the meetings.

THE CULTURE r.o.i.


Almost every company these days claims it wants to an innovative culture. But despite all the big talk, ”innovation initiatives,” and task force work--nothing much changes. To lead in today’s world, you don’t need an innovation department, you need an innovative culture. Let Andy walk you through the "4 R's of Innovation and Change." These lessons from both the improv stage and the conference room will help get your team engaged in a true culture of innovation.

Building a Culture of Innovation


All too familiar with flimsy fun and games trying to pass for culture-building activities? Sure they’re cool, but there’s so much more to do in creating a culture that has deep meaning and purpose, a culture that lasts beyond the next ping pong tournament, or a culture where executives merely delegate transformation to others. Yes, all cultures are different, but at the heart of any thriving culture is its Purpose. Let Andy show you how to put a mean top-spin on yours!

More ping pong than purpose


What are the sweetest parts of a culture that appeal to top talent? What about future millennial leaders, what do they crave? How can you build a sticky culture in a global, anywhere/anytime gig economy? These and many more progressive, integrated ideas to engage, retain and excite everyone involved in the tech-automated, future of work. Let Andy take you there now.

Cultural Candy that Attracts Top Talent


Past results don’t have to be an indication of future performance. Let Andy demonstrate how to break down, analyze and select the most impactful aspects of your culture that will help your team get unstuck and break through with your newly empowered culture. Using the insights of the Team LeaderView™ Diagnostic, Andy will help you get a clear and holisitc picture of your team's current performance from both a systems and organizaitonal health perspective and reveal practical next steps that will get your team working at it's highest potential.

Hallmarks of High-Performing Teams


The research is clear, one the greatest predictors of leader effectivness is self-awarenss. According to a recent Korn Ferry study, companies with a self-aware culture have a higher rate of return.  Building great teams and great cultures start with understanding the people inside them. Andy will leverage the wisdom of self-awareness including insights from the Myers-Briggs, StrengthsFinder, and DiSC, to help you build incredible results from incredible individuals through self-awareness.

A Culture of self-awareness


Nothing draws us in more than a great story. Great companies understand that how they tell their story is at the heart of their culture and the key to engaging both employees and customers. It’s about getting out of the audience and into the author’s seat. It’s about creating your future. It’s about owning your story. Andy will help you author your success story.
