Stop boring your team with bland wellness programs and lame investments in your company culture. A happy team is a productive team!

In this episode, I explore Genevieve's journey to becoming a playful coach, helping leaders and teams be more productive with less stress. We dive into the idea that play and productivity can coexist and discuss the importance of creativity, clear thinking, and strategic thinking in leadership roles. We also examine the balance between order and chaos in our lives and how play can help create an environment for these skills to emerge. We explore the power of play in applying new concepts and fostering creativity, and how small changes in thinking can lead to significant improvements in productivity and overall happiness. Join us in this engaging conversation and discover the power of play in our lives and businesses!

Geneviève Pépin is an accredited life coach (IAPC&M), certified mindset specialist, productivity and leadership development coach (Fortune 500 companies), improv facilitator, and podcast host.

Since before the pandemic started, we are facing unprecedented levels of depression (up 53%), and anxiety (up 55%) in the workforce (Oracle). In fact, $300 Billion is lost by US businesses each year as a result of workplace stress. Plus, 86% of employees and executives cite a lack of collaboration or ineffective communication for workplace failures (Salesforce).

Yet the market is flooded with training on “stress management” and “work performance”, the vast majority of which are bland, and boring and cite basic tips and strategies that can be found on Google in 10 seconds or less. 

That is why we need to focus on Joy Not Stress! Geneviève brings humor, music, and play into the workplace in an impactful and healthy way. She has coached hundreds of professionals and leaders helping them alleviate the pressure they feel from external and internal sources, so they can pursue their high ambitions while staying sane and happy.
