The Dynamic Living Programme...
Introducing the Transforming Power of Joy and Laughter
Joy and Laughter Workshops...
The Dynamic Living Programme (DLP) has been successfully introduced to corporates, hospitals, schools, churches, care groups, retirement homes and many other groups. The power of joy and laughter is being experienced by a growing number of people in South Africa and further afield.
A decade of research proves that happiness raises nearly every business and educational outcome: raising sales by 37%, productivity by 31%, and accuracy on tasks by 19%, as well as a myriad of health and quality of life improvements.
Shawn Achor, Harvard Business Review - 23 June 2011
In the workplace stress levels have more than doubled since 1985 and continue to rise, and companies lose valuable time and productivity due to stress, anxiety and depression, not to mention other illness. That is why we need laughter! Laughter offers a win-win situation at work!
The Dynamic Living Programme offers Joy and Laughter workshops and presentations which are great for...
stress busting sessions
and touch on the vital importance of getting our thinking right (did you know that we literally poison our bodies with negative thoughts?).
The programme includes the science of stress and benefits of laughter, Foundations for Joy (tools for living a more successful, significant and joyful life), and group participation in aerobic laughter classes. This is life changing stuff! It’s not about comedy or humour… it is about pure joy and laughter.
There are enormous health benefits for managers and employees (and their families!), with laughter proven to be one of the most highly effective stress busters, and in business, you really can be laughing all the way to the bank! The programme is tailored according to client needs.
A more proactive approach for managing mental illness in the workplace is a strategic imperative for South African employers.Dr Ali Hamdulay, GM Policy Unit, Metropolitan Health

Workplace Benefits of Laughter
The sessions are an excellent way for staff to de-stress and to learn practical ways of coping with stress in the workplace. This kind of coaching is beneficial. HS
We received lots of good feedback from our employees about the laughter sessions (at our wellness day). Lisa and I also enjoyed our session, and I had a good laugh with taxis this morning on my way to work! JB
Laughter is a life transformer, a character transformer and a mood transformer. AG
The workshop has transformed my life. I laugh more often and have chosen to be happy in spite of the challenges I face every day. JM
This training has had the most impact and value of anything I have done in 20 years in this job! PG
