Research indicates that children smile or laugh 400 times per day while adults smile or laugh only 15 times per day. At IdeaLearning Group we know that laughter is an important component of learning; it reduces stress, is emotionally engaging and enhances creativity and cognitive thinking.

Research shows that while 95% of organizations measure the degree to which employee like the training, 63% fail to measure whether or not employees learned anything and a shocking 97% fail to measure whether the learning actually impacted job performance.
Sadly, much corporate education is like Father Guido Sarducci’s Five Minute University – where participants only remember a tiny fraction of what was presented and are able to apply an even smaller piece, if any at all.
IdeaLearning Group’s Complete Learning Experience model works to ensure that your employee development and training programs result in participants that not only remember, but can actually use their new knowledge, skills and abilities to improve your business.
Father Guido Sarducci is a fictional character made famous by American comedian Don Novello. The character was featured in 1970s cartoons by underground cartoonists Dave Sheridan and Fred Schrier, appearing in person in the early 1970s on Laugh In and later in 1975 Smothers Brothers’ TV show. His most prominent appearance was on Saturday Night Live in the late 1970s.
