- From the Instructor:
- About 47 per cent of Americans say they're satisfied with their jobs, a sizable drop from the 61.1 percent who expressed satisfaction in a similar survey 20 years ago. Why? Conventional wisdom says it is because of lack of opportunity, workload, job insecurity, pay, performance review processes, overtime, etc. But I suggest that another factor is key: A lack of humor and fun in the workplace. This course concentrates on the rediscovery of laughter and situational humor to rebuild human connection, improve individual health, kindle creativity, reduce stress, and establish perspective in the workplace. (Another trivial fact: I am the author of the book 'Laughing Nine to Five.')
