Humor has always been a part of my life. Not just my regular life but also my leadership life. It has been the one tool that has helped me connect with others, be more approachable and also more likeable (when what I had to do could have pushed it in another direction). This week's guest, Andrew Tarvin, is the expert on scientifically (and strategically) using humor to make the work you do and the workplace you do it in, more effective and enjoyable. I know you'll enjoy this interview as much as I did. He's smart and hilarious!
