More Humor Means More Engagement

Dr. Mike has been working and researching humor for nearly 20 years. 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.

If you're an organization that values your people, values creativity, and wants to create an atmosphere where engagement and energy abound, humor is a perfect tool to help meet these goals. Understanding the how's and why's of humor and learning how to effectively increase wit, laughter and mirth will bring benefits to your organization in the near and long term.

See why organizations like the US Army, universities, teachers, and professors have all worked with me to increase engagement.

Customer Reviews

  • Interesting take to have a professor  present on such an interesting topic. Loved the research-based approach. CASE Conference Attendee

  • "It was an honor and a privilege to get the opportunity to see you speak at the United States Army Raleigh Recruiting Battalion FY18 Annual Training Conference. Your ability to articulate how humor in the workplace correlates with building team cohesion and promoting a high level of morale within a unit is a skill set that you have no doubt mastered. This type of leadership approach is an ability that leaders at all levels need in their tool box. Thank you for volunteering your time to come out and speak to all of the Soldiers within our organization. It was greatly appreciated."Sergeant 1st Class Michael Thompson, US Army

  • "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" Institute for Public Trust founder Frank Hill.
