In this episode of The Transformative Leader Podcast, I have the pleasure of interviewing Andrew Tarvin, the world’s leading Humor Engineer! Andrew teaches people how to get better results while having more fun in the workplace. As you will hear in the interview, Andrew has not only figured out how to use humor to become a more effective leader and speaker, but he has also formulated very practical and actionable principles that anybody can use to to the same.
In this episode, Andrew cites some interesting studies on humor in the workplace, addresses common objections to using it, and explains the many ways beyond the obvious that it helps people be more creative, productive, and excited about their work. By following his advice, you will learn to use humor to give others license to be themselves and feel more at ease, communicate more effectively, and empower and engage people on your team or in your organization.
Andrew has worked with thousands of people across 200+ organizations, including P&G, GE, and Microsoft. Combining his background as a project manager at Procter & Gamble with his experience as an international comedian, Andrew’s programs are engaging, entertaining, and most importantly, effective. He is a best-selling author, has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and TEDx, and has delivered programs in 50 states, 18 countries, and 3 continents. He loves the color orange and is obsessed with chocolate.
