Cognitive Humor Psychology®
It's the most significant interpersonal communication, productivity wellness breakthrough
that installs mutual, winning conditions and attitudes at work and after work. It's a masterpiece of
It's a distracted world today. Listening is in short supply, even though we communicate in more ways and places. Yet more critical information is delivered non-verbally (texting, e-mail.) Plus in-person communication displays a lack of body language understanding too. In fact cognitive communication studies show that up to 65% of your meaning and intention is miss-read or lost in all communication. But there are several factors you can control.
They listen intently, wholeheartedly collaborate like it's a home run.
You see it happen with enthusiasm and success.
That's if you also use the most convincing, successful skill:
Objectives sink in, behavior's changed. And they really like you for it.
This experiential humor (meaning it brings up a feeling-bonding connection), interrupts random thinking, disarming an otherwise on-going mental process so your incoming message is bought into because clever seductive listening has been rebooted too.
The happy result? Everyone works toward a nice chunk of prosperity. And stress is definitely deleted by half.
Robert Kutchera developed Cognitive Humor Psychology® in a teaching psychiatric hospital where he worked four years to improve the interactive social skills of his 200 patients through outstanding interpersonal communication. He is a Psychology Adjunctive Therapist, having also assisted in the operating room an additional year.
Continuing his communication studies, he worked nine years lecturing, entertaining and interacting with more than 260,000 passengers from across America and around the world on international cruise ships. (he apprenticed for a year with a national TV sitcom comedian and did comedy performances in English, Spanish and German). In fact while he performed comedy, he surreptitiously learned how to make audience more receptive to his humor and life-saving information. That last part was critical to his SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) instructions on fires and abandon ship drills on each cruise. Robert did 854 cruises of 3 to 21 days in duration.
A bit of Neurology and brain fun: Cognitive Humor® articulates two separate parts in the brain, something that logical thinking does not do. Once the brain has figured the humor incongruity, it next travels to the brain's pleasure center, creating the reward of laughter.
THE COOL PART: Your workplace message, is UNDERSTOOD through to the highest level of acceptance, that then becomes the most powerful pusher for beneficial change. Two ways the brain remembers and/or buys into a situation: Through humor or fear. You can 'fear' people into doing something, but this humor creates the positive response at work you need for action. There's too much fear out there anyway.
He developed and teaches this sanity miracle of transforming Cognitive Humor®.
How the brain remembers a vital lesson with Cog Humor:
[Premise Set-up Line] "The definition of a true friend: [Vivid Punchline] Someone who watches your clothes while you go skinny dipping." [Cognitive Life Lesson] "So choose friends well."
The set up line creates something called "Trainwrecks Of The Mind", a derailing of other thoughts, so you unmistakably get through and teach the Cognitive Life Lesson..."Choose good friends."
Cog Humor is powerful stuff. It keeps the vivid punchline in short-term (current) memory to act on. That means individuals are reminded to apply good friendship with reciprocity: "I'm a good friend too."
Examining the punchline: It may seem a bit risqué, however it's context is the
solution, changing behavior
with the team building result: Being a good work friend works wonders for the
bottom line. Outstanding collaboration through dialogue results in
cooperation because of the strong 'Common Humor Bond', that instills camaraderie.

Robert also taught sales persuasion in a remarkable way: On his radio program and writing award-winning advertising. He also produced/emceed well-received, national sales meetings during a decade in advertising. He teaches these strategies from his three careers in people-to-people communication. Now your e-mails will get that lucrative response.
In 14 programs, Results Speaker® Robert Kutchera changes dynamics that replaces short-lived motivation with winning, lasting conditions and attitudes.
A week after the motivational presentation, hi-fives were gone.
Inspirational words, team exercises were forgotten.
Heck, everything's back at work the way it was.
The call to action, plus a compelling, group validating push, wasn't given.
Imagine going into battle, not telling troops to "Charge!"
Here's That Meeting Success:
The most powerful moment in a meeting is the ending. It's when management seals the deal, where they ask for the sale: "We will do this with confidence, together!"
So why does the motivational speaker receive a standing ovation, but not the audience that needs to carry out an organization's success? Think about that. Who's getting validated, who's left out?
At the presentation conclusion, Robert orchestrates a home run. (Attendees have previously been asked to dress well). It's all part of his trademark solution that creates mutual, winning conditions and attitudes for upbeat compliance. Here's what it looks like:
Attendees are applauded by everyone in management, including team leaders.
Then in a significant departure, individual employees are asked to come to the podium, like a graduation. That's the magic, because once a person walks on stage and looks at the entire room, they've 'arrived at the seat of power'. Once they've felt that prestige, they can't un-feel it. That's Experiential Learning' that changes mindset.
At the podium, each attendee is then announced by a department head, and he or she receives the high honor of a personal, congratulatory handshake from the Chairman Of The Board and have their picture taken along with receiving a professional certificate. Then both CEO and attendee sign. Another great picture.
That shared moment says they support each other. Done publicly, it has much more impact than e-mail. Again, it must be a vivid memory. (e-mail hides body language, a communications disaster.) Now you have lasting results.
What follows next morning, is an interactive workshop of employees and team leaders from two different departments, (say, Customer Service & Sales) orchestrated and presented by Results Speaker ® Robert Kutchera. Having two unrelated departments, shakes things up a bit, creating a wider perspective, reducing stereotypes.
This does another remarkable thing: It focuses on a key issue that everyone the day before agreed to work on. (So they thought about it overnight.) Like building powerful dialogue bridges of collaboration from two groups that usually do not have regular contact. Now you have better cross-departmental dialogue installed.
It's an entrepreneurial, solution-driven program that includes deeply researched, scripted DYADS, reverse role-plays and a balanced historical, humorous skit for open-ended thinking, that importantly addresses a past stubborn issue by problem-solving it out of the way together.
Why are people harder to reach today? Why have we become a society that's 'Hard Of Listening', even though we communicate in more incredible ways and places than ever before?
Why is your meeting motivation or team building not getting sustained results?
And why does it fizz out so darn fast? Is there a better way to spend training and meeting dollars to overcome complacency and stress-related low morale and loyalty?
To know the reason and eventual success for why people act, react and influence each other in a place and situation, there is the scientific study called Social Psychology.
It's also concerns how people think about, control and relate to one another. Robert Kutchera is certainly a master in this study.
Ultimately, it's an important reality:
Difference between only motivation and what solution-driven
Results Speaker® Robert Kutchera does:
What Methodology Achieves:
*POOR LISTENING is the result of Presenteeism (sub-par performance due to stress or depression) , 'Agenda Anxiety' where you are interrupted before you finish, 'Hurry Sickness' being too busy to slow down and listen-a fear of bad news, 'Hard of Listening', Little exercise and peace, sleep deprivation.
Humor is the highest form of activity in the brain, above that of reasoning, because in that process, it uses two parts of the brain: One to unravel the incongruity (clever riddle) of the humor posed, to make logic out of it, and two, activating the pleasure/reward center or the fear (amygdala center) (of fight or flight).
When something is vivid (either humorous or tragic) it is better remembered. Attaching a thought to a command for action, say by a speaker delivering the thought at the moment, it becomes a significant memory, gaining compliance for that action. Again, because it was delightfully pleasant or terrifying. Such as mom rewarding you with validation for something you did well, or punishing you for doing wrong. Same at work with a supervisor.
Robert teaches Irresistible Communication for Seductive Listening for mutual Winning Conditions. He manifests Workplace Harmony for Deleted Drama. (that's good!) Then installs Team Entrepreneurial Thinking for Rewarded Action.
It's a thrilling interactive presentation, an inspired, joyous push that bestows solid accomplishment and hi-fives. Not passive 'pretty words' that fizzle out. If you're ready to taste the fresh air of self-validation, rebooting your treasure of energy, this is it. These are spanking new ideas. All put together in the powerful awareness concept called Cognitive Humor Psychology®
Today you want an anticipatory program that quickly reverses the dynamics of Hurry Sickness, Presenteeism, Agenda Anxiety, relentless deadlines and incorrect Multi-Tasking. That solution is Cognitive Humor Psychology® which allows you to get through, key into memory and create challenging, fun and collaborative team work.
Robert Kutchera developed Cognitive Humor Psychology® to end the impasse between goals and achievement by restoring optimism for fulfilling workplace environments. That's a significant benefit.
His philosophy: "Be good to yourself. Then act to help others.
It's like safety procedures on a plane, 'put your oxygen mast on first, then on the child or someone else.' If you pass out, you're no good to anyone, including yourself.
So take the leap of faith, saying what you need, asking kindly for what you want.
Because no one's a mind reader, ah!
And show up to help others."
The Result? Magnificence All Around. Nobody's Left Out.
It's cognitive, observational humor stimulating creativity, team energy and terrific morale.
What it's not is clown noses or jokes that go nowhere... This is the only kind of ® in America that is both motivator and tied to personal success. While it provides laughter, the humor, is an outstanding thinking perspective that opens up attitudinal change. That's the cognitive or teaching element.
What it does for organizations is entrepreneurial focus, workplace wellness and rich interpersonal dialogue. Cognitive Humor Psychology® was developed or this purpose.
What defines success today?
Getting through e-mail. Well, yes. But there's more value in profitable cooperation today.
Besides less frustration, not more, gets the job done.
So go ahead, call your work area, "The Spa!" (bet you're smiling now)
