When Life is Hard, Laugh Harder! - Devin Henderson
January 27, 2017
Hosted by Rick A. Morris
Humor is a serious tool that can have a funny impact. When people engage their sense of humor, they become better communicators, better problem solvers, better decision makers and better with conflict resolution. They are also more creative, more productive, more fun to be around, less stressed, healthier, fresher, and more open to new ideas. Humor is not an option when it comes to productivity, it is a necessity. Whether you lead a team or serve clients, humor is one of the greatest gifts you can bring to the people around you. Rick will interview Devin Henderson, Humorist and Keynote Speaker who takes humor seriously. Rick and Devin will discuss why humor is important, how to use humor in the workplace, and how to use humor with difficult people. This is going to be an interview you do not want to miss!

Our program is designed for many types of individuals. Executives gain valuable insight into some of the largest issues facing their business. Employees learn how to influence without power. Team members learn how to associate and get along better with their teams. Even non-business people will learn many things about themselves and how they view life so that they can adjust the areas that need adjusting. Each week we cover goals and goal setting and learn how to break down large problems into small achievable wins. We also share tips on managing people without the normal tools of an HR manager. I hope you gain a powerful perspective while enjoying the show. Our topics are much like the career of a project manager: wide ranging with unlimited potential.
