FUNdamentally Speaking
Leave A Mark, Not A Stain!

What every leader needs to know about how to use humor

Do you want to look self-confident and intelligent and to connect effectively with others?

  • Use Humor Correctly

Do you want your management career stained by ill will and incompetence?

  • Use Humor Incorrectly

Do you want to cut yourself off from an important source of information?

  • Don't Use Humor At All

Buy this book and learn how to increase your
effectiveness with humor...

Price: $14.95
The examples in this book come from over 30 years of practicing and observing humor in the workplace as a speaker, consultant, employee and as a supervisor of staffs as large as 150 individuals.

They come from personal experiences and from hundreds of stories related by clients in Canada, Europe and the United States, and from fields as diverse as health care, education, banking, forestry, private industry, association management and federal, state and local governments.

Some of the suggestions will be easy to implement from a supervisory position; others are probably more effective when put forward by selected staff members in collaboration with the leader. Some will fit your situation immediately; others will need to be adapted to fit your company culture. Some will make you chuckle; others will have you shaking your head in disbelief!

Just know that each idea worked somewhere, at some time. Since humor requires a measure of spontaneity, know, as well, that no one idea will work anywhere forever.

The Obscure Holiday eBooks™

Dr. Schwab’s book, The Obscure Holiday HandbookOutrageously fun reasons to celebrate at work, in the classroom, and at home, sold out. It is currently being replaced by a group of twelve eBooks — one for each month — collectively containing over 1,800 clever, inventive, memorable, and downright silly excuses for blog posts, business promotions, office celebrations, senior center get-togethers, special events, or just plain fun with family and friends.

None of them are the well-known holidays already on your calendar, like Christmas, Mother’s Day, Summer Solstice, etc. These are, as the title implies, “Obscure” holidays, eager to be celebrated and to tweak your imagination.
NOTE: None of them were invented by the author.
