Create a Better Organization w/ Dr. Mike

If you want to create an atmosphere in your organization where engagement and energy abound, let Dr. Mike Cundall help you. He can show you how to effectively increase engagement, work-life satisfaction, and create overall more fulfilling organizational spaces.

Great News!! My TEDx talk from @ TEDx Raleigh has posted.

Research shows humor boosts creativity, improves communication effectiveness, and increases morale and attitude. It improves health and increases camaraderie. Dr. Mike believes that any organization or individual that has a proper understanding of humor will be able to see improvements across a variety of areas.

Check out his book "The Humor Hack." It has 13 chapters covering how humor works, how you can work humor into your life, how to create spaces where humor flourishes. Here's an interview on an NPR affiliate about my book.

I've started a Substack to replace my blog. Old blog posts will remain up.

"Mike did a superb job communicating both in concept and anecdote the way to engage professionally using humor. [He] helped me consider how I can better connect with people in challenging settings particularly in the use of humor."

Kevin Hallquist
VP, PMI Triad NC Chapter​

"During the contentious 2016 election, Mike came in and taught a class on using humor in politics which was well-received. In these days of coarse civil discourse, hopefully, his focus on elevating debate will help future candidates do better than what we have experienced in recent memory."

Frank Hill
Founder, Institute for Public Trust
