Product description


“Funnily enough, this book is hilariously useful. Think of it as a practical playbook that helps you reconsider the way you do things and results in heightened levels of happiness. Every leader should read this book, work with the tools provided, and get serious about making people smile."
Phil M. Jones, Sales Coach and best-selling author, Exactly What to Say

“If Brian Regan and Warren Buffet had a baby... and that baby could write a book... it would be this book! Drew’s Humor That Works gives real-world examples of how humor increases effectiveness and job satisfaction and sets the stage for more meaningful human interactions that will bring benefits to the workplace and beyond. As Drew writes, ‘To be more human at work, use more humor at work.’”
Tim McGilloway, Global Solution Manager, Procter & Gamble

“Pay attention to the strategies Drew shares in this fantastic book—filled with ideas on how to help you incorporate humor as a daily habit in your personal and professional life. His ideas will drive productivity, credibility, and connectivity. A must-read for every leader and a great gift for every team member!”
Neen James, Attention Expert and author, Attention Pays

Product Description

If you want to increase team productivity, relieve stress, and be happier at work, you could hire a bunch of workplace consultants, invest in scream therapy, and put Pharrell Williams on repeat—or you could just read Humor That Works.

Written by Andrew Tarvin, the world’s first Humor Engineer, this a business book on humor. No, that’s not an oxymoron. It really is a business book and it really is about getting better results by having more fun. Because people who use humor in the workplace are more productive, less stressed, and happier. No joke; sources included.

The goal is not to make you funnier—though that may be a side effect—but to make you effective-er. You’ll learn to develop a personal humor habit that’s not about spitting wisecracks or telling the funniest stories, but a way of seeing work in an energizing new way. You’ll build on some of the most important business skills for today’s work environment, develop techniques for leveraging humor, and take action to improve your work immediately. And you’ll have fun doing it.

There will be stories about grandmas who text, multiple mentions of milkshakes, and exactly seven references to zombies. Oh, and there will be puns. (You’ve been warned.) Looking for success and happiness at work? Discover the missing skill of Humor That Works.
