Lead with Laughs:

Use Humor to Put the "Human" in HR

David Horning

Water Cooler Comedy

We’ve been programmed to believe that "work isn't the time or place to laugh,” but this outdated adage has a demotivating and destructive effect in the modern workplace. 

Backed by case studies and scientific research, this program provides a heaping helping of information, simple daily practices anyone can implement, and hilarious anecdotes about what not to do to determine, well, what to do.

Managers and HR departments everywhere are facing an unprecedented amount of uncertainty that will continue as new technologies upend the status quo as the 21st century unfolds. Being open to vulnerability and being comfortable with change are skills that aren’t taught in schools, and studies have shown that the ability for leaders to stop taking themselves so seriously actually improves problem-solving, builds trust, and inspires innovation. You'll leave this program energized and ready to transform your workplace into a safe space for creativity, collaboration, and fun that will engage and inspire you and your team... you don't even have to be funny to do it!


  • 4 reasons why addressing employee engagement in new ways is urgent in the modern workplace for recruiting, engaging, and retaining millennials and gen-z talent.

    The definition of humor, its most common myth, and why it’s such a powerful tool for inspiring a resilient, creative, and engaged team.
  • A simple life hack (or laugh hack in this case) for quickly adapting to unexpected adversity.

  • 6 guidelines for incorporating humor into your workplace culture.

This program has been submitted for 1 SHRM and HRCI credit.
