How Humor Helps Business

Join us at HQ on March 11 at 12pm for a presentation on how humor helps business!

When explaining the importance of humor to situations like customer service, business communication, workplace environment, and team building, the general response is “Yeah, sure it is.” But most people worry that soon workplaces will turn into comedy clubs. 

Humor, good humor, well-placed humor, is not anything like a comedy club. Humor at work is best when it creates a soft chuckle, a wry smile, or lightens the mood. To think that humor at work is about getting laughs is to focus too narrowly on what humor is and can do for our work places. In this presentation, Mike Cundall Jr will discuss how and when you can best use humor to improve your work activities.

When: Wednesday, March 11 | 12-1pm
Where: HQ Greensboro | 111 W Lewis St
How much: FREE
