Imagine an experience where the audience is laughing, clapping, participating, and even volunteering to come on stage, all while learning a profound mindset shift: switching your default response from “yes, but” to “Yes, And!” is the simple key to embracing change, transforming relationships, breaking down barriers, and unlocking greatness.

In this hilarious, high-energy, interactive keynote, Avish combines improv comedy performance, audience participation, engaging storytelling, and impactful content into an experience that will have your attendees walking out the door inspired to say “Yes, And!” to others, to change, and to themselves!

In a world that is getting smaller and smaller and changing faster and faster, innovation and creativity become keys to staying competitive. Organizations and individuals who apply innovation move ahead. Those who don’t, struggle and fall behind.

In this high-energy, hilarious, and interactive keynote, Avish shows your audience use the power of “Yes, And!” to tap into their creativity and how they can use it to unleash innovation to become “game changers” and leaders in their organization and industry. By the end of the program, Avish will have taken your attendees through the I.C.E. system, which will show attendees how to:

  • IDENTIFY true goals to ensure they are not wasting their creative energy, as well as the constraints they face in achieving those goals.
  • CREATE a large list of ideas, potential solutions, implementable actions, etc. by accessing and developing the untapped creative power they might not even be aware they have.
  • EXPERIMENT with their ideas to see what works, what doesn’t and what adjustments they need to make to keep moving forward and innovating.
You have probably heard the expression, “people don’t leave bad jobs, they leave bad managers.” There is truth to that, but there is another way of looking at it: “people don’t leave bad jobs, they leave ‘yes, but’ managers and environments.” When an employee hears “yes, but” over and over, it crushes their morale, stamps out their creativity, and builds tension, resentment, and conflict. Not only does “yes, but” increase the likelihood that person will leave for other opportunities; it also greatly diminishes the potential value they could bring to their work and to your team and organization!
When leaders shift from a default mindset of “yes, but” to an empowering approach of “Yes, And!” they can instantly improve morale, loyalty, creativity, and engagement. In this high-energy, hilarious, and interactive keynote, Avish will demonstrate the power of “Yes, And!” Leadership and give your attendees valuable tools they can use to transform their teams, departments, and organizations into “Yes, And!” workforces!
