WHY HUMOUR, POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND RECOGNITION IN THE WORKPLACE

by Mike Moore
http://www.motivationalplus.com

1. Humour in the workplace reduces stress levels and stress is the number one problem confronting employees today.

2. Laughter,positive attitude and recognition boost morale while stress erodes staff morale and alienation. It is in the best interest of any business to invest in the happiness of its employees. Laughter is an effective barometer of just how happy your people are. When positive attitude and recognition are added to the mix great things happen that impact positively on both health and safety. When employees feel appreciated, they tend to have a more confident and positive attitude and are more focused when doing tasks that involve caution and attention.

3. Keeping things in perspective tends to boost morale and humor helps us keep things in perspective.

4. Workplace humour helps facilitate change. Change is inevitable and people who laugh well and often tend to be more flexible and adaptable.

5. Communication improves when humour is used appropriately. The timely use of humour can get a point across effectively and assists in the process of problem solving.

6. Laughter and humour in the workplace relieve boredom and increase creative energy.

7. Humour builds confidence. When we laugh at ourselves we are less rigid and more spontaneous. We tend to bounce back more quickly when negative things happen. Humour also makes us less fearful of making mistakes and more confident about overcoming setbacks.

8. Laughter and humour promote positive relationships. When you hear a funny story your first impulse is to tell someone and share the laughter. When laughter is shared a natural bonding takes place. So humour and laughter tend to promote a sense of team and co-operation.

9. Humour promotes happiness and joy. It’s good to be alive.

10. Quality relationships are measured by the amount of laughter present. When relationships are good, people laugh a lot. The same applies to businesses. When employees enjoy one another and laugh easily and often, we see performance improve and profits increase.

11. The humour I speak of here must never be based on laughing at someone, racism, sexism, put downs, sarcasm or ridicule. These forms of humour are destructive attempts at making one look good by making another look and feel badly. There is enough good humour to last a lifetime. Just look for it.

IMPORTANT…

When I refer to the positive role humour has on health and safety it is important to point out that I do not mean that humour and laughter should be present when people are doing dangerous tasks.  That would be irresponsible and distracting. I believe that humour bonds people to one another thus promoting a sense of focussed attention, team co-operation, and caring for the health and safety of those with whom they work ESPECIALLY on hazardous tasks.

THEY WHO LAUGH…………LAST.

How to Parent Teenagers and Stay Sane…

By | dealing with difficultpeople, Parenting, Parenting Teenagers, Self Confidence, Stress Management, Uncategorized | No Comments

 

” Doris Had The Secret To Parenting Teenagers And I Wanted It! By Mike Moore

When I first met Doris she had been recently widowed at the young age of 45. She was now the single parent of three active teenage boys and whatever she was doing she was doing right. Her boys obviously loved and respected her and enjoyed every minute in her company. What was her secret?? I needed to know as I was the father of three sons on the verge of becoming teens and I wanted the relationship with my sons that Doris had with hers.

I thought taking her to lunch would provide the ideal opportunity to tap her parenting wisdom so I extended the invitation and she accepted. When the moment was right I made my move. ” Doris, you have such a great relationship with your sons. What’s your secret? ” She smiled and said, ” Mike it’s really quite simple. See everything, overlook a lot, change what you can and know when to shut your mouth and listen.”

Doris died much too young but what a legacy she left behind for her family and mine. I have tried to make her message the core of my family life and my teaching with some difficulty and much success. ( I still have a tendency to want to preach.)

Today Carol and I have 4 adult offspring who obviously love their Mom and Dad very much and genuinely enjoy being with us. Whenever we’re together LAUGHTER RULES and laughter is a great indication of a good relationship.

In my ebook ” How to Parent Teenagers and Stay Sane ” I incorporate Doris’ parenting wisdom along with what Carol and I have learned in the parenting and teaching trenches. These tips, tools and techniques will make the world of difference in your short term and long term relationship with your difficult teens.

Thank you Doris.

The Awesome Power of Positive Thought

By | Anxiety, Food for Thought, Inspiration, Motivation, Self Confidence, Self Improvement, staff morale, Stress Management | No Comments

Hi. I’m Mike Moore and I’m a Canadian motivational speaker/humourist.

For years I struggled to conquer my out of control fear and anxiety.

When things reached a ridiculous point  where I couldn’t stand it any longer  I had to do something about it  right away.

To learn what I did…READ ON…

 

Let me Share my Story

When I was in my mid 20s I was a bundle of fear and anxiety.

I couldn’t sleep and the more I couldn’t sleep the more I worried about not being able to sleep. I dreaded the idea of going to bed at night.

I also feared getting cancer or dying of a heart attack.

Any pimple on my nose instantly became cancer of the nose.

I even feared getting married and having children because I feared something terrible happening to them.

I wasn’t living fully I was living fearfully. FEAR AND WORRY HAD OVERTAKEN MY LIFE.

Every time I went to the doctor about an ailment and they told me that I was fine, I didn’t believe them.

They must have missed something.

This continued until I had had enough and decided to do something about it.

I began by researching the subject and applying what I learned to my own life.

Two books that literally transformed my life were How to Stop Worrying and Start Living and The Power of Positive Thinking. I also became very proficient at self hypnosis and the Relaxation Response.

Things began to improve right away using the Awesome Power of Positive Thought.

 

We all know that positive thoughts and visualization are really effective when it comes to re-educating our subconscious mind and changing our behavior.

My interest in the life changing power of positive thought and visualization started in my mid-twenties (quite a few years ago) when I picked up a copy of Norman Vincent Peale’s best seller “The Power of Positive Thinking”. That book was a great inspiration which eventually lead to the creation of 121 Thoughts of Hope, Joy and Inspiration based on years of successful, and practical application of it’s principles.

Embracing the Mystery ( Living the Life You Want)

By | Anxiety, Self Confidence, Self Help, Self Improvement, Stress Management | No Comments

Mike, just wanted to share with you that my dad thoroughly enjoyed your book Embracing the Mystery (Living the Life You Want.) He doesn’t read books but he read this one and loved it!

Bernice V. Brantford ON

 

Hi Mike
Both my daughter and I have finished reading your book, Embracing the Mystery. What a great read! Thank you for writing it…Very Uplifting.

John MacGillivary Ontario Canada.
  • Dear Mike
    We so enjoy your philosophy, your positive attitude and your sense of humour. After extensive cancer surgery and John being diagnosed with Parkinson’s life has been, and still is, at times, a bumpy road. But each day is a gift and with so much of your positive input we keep going. We hope to have the pleasure of meeting you personally.
    Until then, thank you.

    John and Renata Ontario Canada
  • This Amazon.com review by Wendy Priesnitz is for Embracing the Mystery (Paperback)
    This is a little jewel of a book, which contains a wealth of inspiration for living a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life.
    Moore provides tips for reducing stress, improving self-esteem, banishing fear, nurturing patience, and more. But more than that, he helps us get back in touch with the sense of joy and wonder that so often gets buried under the busyness of daily life.
    The author is also a cartoonist and his casual writing style is enhanced by a generous dose of appropriate cartoons, which never fail to bring a smile to my lips, no matter how glum I’m feeling. This is one of those books to which I return whenever I feel like I need help becoming a better person.
