Humor U Coaching Programs
Creating a "Culture that Works"
Do you wonder how your employees are feeling about their jobs?
Is it evident from their facial expressions, verbal expressions,
and performance that they love their job or is it evident that
they'd rather be elsewhere?
Do you believe that "a happy employee is a productive employee"?
In fact, having happy employees results in the following benefits
for your company:
- Employee morale
- Stronger communication
- Improved productivity
- Greater creativity and problem-solving capabilities
- Reduced turnover, burnout, and "churn"
- Reduced stress and thus health claims
- Reduced accidents and violence at work
- Higher retention rates
- Bottom line: Increased bottom line!
Humor University specializes in helping workplaces like yours
assess the level of contentment that employees
have for their jobs, assesses the "humor quotient" or "laughitude"
of your work environment, and then trains and coaches you to excellence
in the Humor in the Workplace arena.
We're definitely serious about lightening up your workplace.
We're about offering you an opportunity to take your place among
the few companies that believe that a happy, fun place is a better
place to work. We help you to "Raise the Bar" and create
workplaces where people LOVE coming to work.
So, if we humorize your workplace, this is what you can expect:
- We'll do a very thorough assessment of how your employees
feel about working for you. This assessment will consist of
both written material and in-person interviews with your employees.
- We'll spend some time at your headquarters or other
locations to observe the overall attitude and functioning of
the employees. We're well-trained in systems theory and the
Deming Model and thus will be able to make excellent recommendations
on what's working and what's not.
- We'll determine the effectiveness of your "teams"
– are they working well together?
- We'll offer you both a written summary and a discussion
of our findings.We'll then prescribe and carry out a PLAN for
energizing your workplace … and thus your bottom line!
This plan will address of many of the following areas:
- The physical environment
- The breakroom
- The need for more efficient team building
- How to combat stress and burnout on the job
- How to appoint a Director of Fun position or a "Fun
committee" to plan regular events at your workplace.
Once we present the plan, we'll train your Fun committee on how
to actually implement Humor in the Workplace prescriptions. We'll
provide on-going coaching for a period of at least six months
to assist with the implementation.
Our mission is "to eradicate terminal seriousness in
the world". We know that's a rather lofty statement,
but we truly believe that the benefits of humor or a "lightened-up"
environment far outweigh the downside of seriousness.
To that end, we invite you to discuss the Humorize Your Workplace
option with us. We'll customize a package for you. You can sign
on for the entire program or for portions that meet your needs.
Let us know what you need and we'll prepare the proposal. For

Coaching is a wonderful way of assisting people in distinguishing
the gaps they're experiencing between where they are and where
they want to be. A coach (or mentor) is someone who can lead others
into being their best by understanding their individual learning
styles, by helping them conceptualize their goals, and by challenging
them to take action. We use the Birkman Method to assess individuals
and the team. Learn about coaching, how it works, and how to apply
it your work groups.
