Let’s face it, work can be nuts. So what is the answer to handling stress, managing change, getting your reports in on time and not reverting to minor office altercations? For starters, the answer is humor.

Humor is a serious tool that has a funny impact. When people engage their sense of humor, they become better communicators, better problem solvers, and better with conflict resolution. They are also more creative, productive, fun to be around, less stressed, and more open to new ideas.

Devin offers concrete strategies for increasing productivity and maintaining sanity in the midst of a stressful and changing workplace. With Devin’s hilarious presentation you will learn to laugh, lighten up and love work!
