  • Inside the Cubicle, Finding the Humor at Work: Dave Fleming thinks conference calls are funny. And he's right. If you look at them the way he does, from the INSIDE. So, that's his goal, to help everyone go INSIDE. Inside the mindset of people at work. Inside the decisions they make about food, about clothing choices, about words they say. You see, while everyone is trying to be really good at the jobs they were hired to do, they are battling all of these other things all day long. As you laugh to the point of exhaustion, Dave will help you discover what's really affecting workplace communication and morale. And he will provide tips that managers and team leaders can use to improve their coaching ability and collaboration immediately upon leaving the presentation.
  • The Best Boss Ever Can Be YOU, The Greatest Boss Ever: Picture, for a moment, the best boss you ever had. I bet he or she had many great qualities like showing a tremendous commitment to the company, being passionate about the job, and always prioritizing the career development of the team. This picture forms the foundation of Dave's keynote speech. He believes managing and coaching is a privilege that should be treated as such. He believes all managers should be constantly working on their own coaching skills so they are better leaders for their teams. And he believes that starts with a passion for coaching people. Humorous managing examples from his 20+ years working for Fortune 500 companies are woven in so the audience can laugh AND learn. He will show how passionate leadership can drive exceptional results. And how just a few leaders who are committed to coaching can instill a mentality that can spread throughout a particular department and even whole companies.
  • The Power of Connection: To truly excel at work and thrive in your career, you must be able to connect. You must be able to connect with colleagues, cross-functional team members, outside vendors, agencies, customers and consumers. Those who are focused on continuing to build those connections will excel, while those that maintain the status quo will likely struggle. Dave shares his personal stories of how connections early in his life benefit him today. He aims this program at inspiring individuals and teams to continue to make connections (some are simple, others quite hard) and reap the benefits of those efforts.
  • The Humor in Today's Workplace (College Students): This is a straight comedy performance of 45-60 minutes that is perfect for a break during orientation or as a distraction before exams and interviews. Your students will laugh & learn about what is really going in the offices that they are working so very hard to join.
  • "Cube Smarts" Merged with "Book Smarts" (College Students): Your students are on their way to their degrees, but they need the inside knowledge to assimilate quickly in today's workplace. Dave Fleming's "Cube Smarts" program prepares students to tackle the soft skills, politics, and workplace dynamics they will encounter when starting a new job. Dave educates your students on topics like dealing with a bad boss, developing a personal brand, conference call etiquette, and break room fridge rules. For MBA students, the focus areas include: framing issues for multiple audiences, managing upward, and influencing peers. Humorous real world examples coupled with practical must-follow tips will have your students laughing AND learning. NOTE: There are two versions of this program. One for undergrads and one for MBA students.
