People who use humor well get promoted, make more money, are more productive, and enjoy their work more. That’s exactly what happened to Andrew Tarvin!
At Procter & Gamble, Drew led multi-million dollar IT projects. As a super-nerd (computer, math, engineer, sci-fi and video game) he was all about getting results. Drew discovered that using humor at work made him more effective with the hardest thing he had to manage: fellow human beings.
When we’re funnier, we’re effective-er. Using humor at work makes people take notice and take action. Drew went on his own as the world’s first humor engineer. His Computer Science and Engineering education at The Ohio State University, background in improv and stand-up comedy, and experience at one of the world’s top companies all combine to help him inspire humans to be more effective.
As the CEO of Humor That Works, a training company that delivers workshops on using humor to be more effective, Drew has presented to over 35,000 people from more than 250 different organizations in all 50 states, 20-plus countries, 5 continents and 1 planet. He wrote the best-seller Humor That Works: 501 Ways to Beat Stress, Increase Productivity, and Have Fun at Work and was featured in The Wall Street Journal , Forbes, and FastCompany . His TEDx talk has been viewed more than 3 million times.
Drew has worked with such clients as Microsoft, the FBI, the U.S. Navy, ESPN, PepsiCo, GE, and the International Association of Canine Professionals (yes there were dogs in the audience). The real benefits of humor come when it becomes part of how you get things done, win friends and influence people, and are habitually effective in seven ways. (Eight! With humor.)
You’ll enjoy learning how to be more productive, less stressed, and happier.
