Laughter Turns Upset into Onset

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, May 20, 2019

… for a relationship that is. Strangest thing about humor. When found and used appropriately, it creates a bond and wins people over. When confronted with serious situations, laughter is often the first ingredient to dispel tension and get things moving again. As Victor Borge was known for saying, “laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” It is also what attracts others to us and our services.

I remember seeing a sign in a travel agency in Miami. “Please Go Away”. I wanted to do business with them. At least I know they’d be fun!

A colleague sent me a notice he said came from an IRS office: “We've got what it takes to take what you've got.” At last: a government agency with a sense of humor.

A friend went to a restaurant in Washington State. She observed another patron who had apparently ordered the chicken and it was definitely not to his liking. He called over the waiter and proceeded to yell at him about the lousy food. “This is BAD chicken,” he shouted holding up the plate to the stunned waiter. That waiter didn’t miss a beat. He grabbed the plate and proceeded to spank the chicken, saying “Bad, bad, Chicken!”

Everyone in the restaurant broke up laughing. Now in a heartbeat, the waiter apologized and said he would bring back a new dinner. But it was the laughter that broke the spell and got things back to a place where the waiter could actually help the customer.

If something happens today to get your dander up, see what might be the humor in the situation. If you laugh, the silly upset goes away and what remains in its place is the real issue to be handled.

Hoping you find laughter this week. Remember and the world laughs along. Or at least chuckles!

Career Conversations Create Resilient Employees

By Eileen McDargh - Thursday, May 16, 2019

Resiliency, in my definition, is energy management. Do we have the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual energy to keep on “keeping on”? In short, can we grow forward through challenges or opportunities while we expand our wisdom and skills? Energy is determined by the quality and frequency of our connections. When a manager makes time to understand what is important to an employee, to help chart a career path that is personally meaningful and organizationally valued, then the energy sparks are powerful!
