Lighten Up: Humor in the Workplace (2-3 hours)
This fun filled, two- to three-hour workshop looks at three viewpoints of humor in the workplace. The first viewpoint deals with how using humor can reduce stress and make you feel better by releasing chemicals (endorphins) that act as a natural tranquilizer. In the second viewpoint, we discuss how humor can help you advance your career by improving morale and productivity of a business unit. The final viewpoint is how a sense of humor can improve your interpersonal communication skills with your colleagues. The theme throughout the workshop is that humor can change your perspective of yourself and your job; therefore, lighten up!
