Today’s guest is the world’s first Humor Engineer, teaching people how to get better results while using humor and having more fun.

While working in the corporate world, he observed how using humor at work helped him be more effective with the hardest thing he had to manage: fellow human beings. He discovered that research shows that people who use humor well get promoted, make more money, are more productive, and enjoy their work more. He left the corporate position and started his own company, Humor That Works.

He has worked with thousands of people at over 250 organizations, including P&G, Microsoft, and the International Association of Canine Professionals. He is a best-selling author, has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and FastCompany, and his TEDx talk on humor has been viewed more than 4 million times.

Please join me in welcoming Andrew Tarvin.

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is not a position or title you have but rather an attitude in action. It’s you actually out there doing something.”
  • how he got into improv.
  • his analytical and conscious process for moving away from PNG and into his own business.
  • his three steps for having a conversation with anyone.
  • how he follows up with people to keep relationships strong.
  • the tools he has gained for being an introvert who enjoys connecting to other people.
