“In a sensitive, amusing way Kirsten introduced us to the delicate topic of humor. She achieved this by telling funny stories and anecdotes, creating verbal humor, showing short videos, practicing interactive games and exercises and experimenting with the clown nose. She also demonstrated the multi-facetted nature of humor. Between the units Kirsten gently encouraged us via WhatsApp messages to use what we learned in our everyday lives."
„In her seminars, Kirsten helped me to identify and relax some of my own rigid behaviors. We can turn a situation around by small modifications, verbal humor and unexpected actions. Whether raising children, in our relationships or at work. With little challenges, pictures, cartoons and Whatsup messages I always found my way back into the humor mode.”
Dr. Christiane Hansen
"I have developed my awareness for humor during the webinars and on-site trainings. I also learned how and in what situations humor can be applied. The multiple, practical exercises have supported me. Kirsten is a unique person and that makes her great at this! Her in-depth knowledge of the subject, her easy going and pleasant character paired with the sincere interest in every participant turned the humor training into a sustainable experience."
„I really loved your authenticity and sincerity. You motivated the participants to stay on the humor track between each unit by your charming persistence. I really enjoyed listening to you because every unit was prepared beautifully and exceptionally well. Great atmosphere, wonderful group, efficient schedule, theory & practice in balance. The group work in the breakout rooms were very powerful.“
Dr. Constanze Heinrich
„Kirsten made us aware that it’s possible to master emotionally difficult situations by humor without having to hurt anyone. The seminar brought lightness and showed that adults can turn towards the funny and absurd side of life without regrets. As a highly motivated trainer, Kirsten demonstrated that humor is an attitude. She characterised this visually with the “twinkle in the eye”. With her own personality she succeeded to convince us of the relevance of humor in our everyday (work) life.“
„We (Master Global Urban Health Uni Freiburg) were extremely thankful to deliver the humour
session with Kirsten Haenle. It was an excellent opportunity to cope with current COVID challenges, providing hope and good spirit to our Master students and to all of us!“
Dr. Sonia Diaz-Monsalve
“The webinars and on-site trainings were very positive events. Kirsten taught the topic in a convincing manner and was always prepared very well. She knew what she was talking about and always added her own humorous experience from her workplace and daily life. The participants have grown together while excelling themselves. To be highly recommended.“
„Nowadays, humor is a very relevant subject. To stay involved in the topic I could imagine visiting a regular humor class just as I go to the gym once a week to stay fit. Kirsten has guided us through the seminar in a very positive, cheerful and outgoing manner.“
„During the humor-webinar I have received many ideas how to make my private and professional life more fun and less stressful. Kirsten is a very professional humor trainer: always prepared excellently and very creative. She is very positive and has a contagious laugh. She has always succeeded to lure us out the low of our everyday life and elevate us into lighter spheres of humor.”
