Studies show 70% of the workplace is disengaged, costing $500 billion of lost productivity? Do you find these results surprising? Drew Tarvin is a self-proclaimed “Humor Engineer” and believes we should move beyond how to do a job to ow to enjoy a job for better results (more impact on the bottom line). So, should work/can work be fun? Drew joins Kevin to discuss his book, Humor That Works: The Missing Skill for Success and Happiness at Work. Drew shares that it’s not about the jokes or wisecracks; it’s about looking at the job in a new and energizing way. He reverse-engineers the skill of humor in a way that you can use as a tool for better results.
In this episode, Drew discusses 1. Why we should use humor at work. 2. The 3 parts of humor. 3. The connection between humor and fun.
