Things are going easier when you approach them with humour

A six-weeks intensive coaching traject

People who use humour have less stress, are more easy in building relationships and getting more things done. Do you, as a CEO, director, manager, team leader, trainer, salesperson or for your personal life want to look different towards situations, collegues or yourself? Do you want personal coaching custom made? Dare to take the step and choose for your own private humour-coach.

It hit me!

I had some resistance, but because of her patience and subtle approach Malinca was pushing me forward and gave me tools to look different to myself and really empowered me. 
She was looking at my character, personality and talents and made tailor-made exercises which challenged me. It made me more convincing and gave me more self-confidence in my role as a dramaturg. 
Besides that, I learned a lot about humour & pain and got tools to inspire and motivate my writing team. I am going to do her E-learning: ‘How to bring more humour in your life and work’ as well. 
Her personal and lighthearted approach has really hit me and made my personality grow. I surely recommend her with my colleagues. I give her an 8 for these humour coaching sessions.

Business is going easier

I give her an 8 for these coaching sessions.
I became more spontaneous, happier and business is going after six weeks really easier than before with the guidance from Malinca Verwiel as humour coach.
For sure I do recommend this to everyone because I look at my work and business much more from a humoristic perspective and it made me much more resilient. I love to do a follow up in a live group.

Who is Malinca Verwiel?

Malinca Verwiel is founder of Humor in Bedrijf. She sees comedy & humour as a way of life. ‘My drive for directing comedians, give lessons in comedy and give keynotes about playfulness started with my youth were humour was born out of a family of fighters, victims and drama-queens. It felt as if I was a spectator of a badly written Greek tragedy. There was always tension in our family. And my tendency to use humour was to get rit of this tension. I felt the unstoppable need for something more light, more fun and more happiness. So humour here wasn’t the goal, but a tool for breaking tension. In this family, she also saw that a lot of misery is cost by people who take themselves too seriously. With the result, I can’t even take myself seriously anymore’.

After working behind the scenes for about 30 years as a comedy-director and teacher, including the coaching of Claudia de Breij in her very important first years, she’s sharing her years of experience. In total, she has helped for over more than 30 starting comedians to a successful career and has infected over 1000 students with her comedy virus. She cum laude graduated with her paper about the topic: How to turn a tragedy into a comedy and a comedy into a tragedy? If you like to read more about her as a comedy-director look here.

She is also a writer of the E-book: We sale air. How humour gives organisations a break with big and small problems.
