1. Develop an interest in people and become other oriented.
2. Know what people need and then try to meet those needs.
3. Ask about their family and be genuinely interested in their answer.
4. Find people doing something right and praise them generously.
5. Believe in the collective wisdom of the group.
6. Talk in terms of a person’s main interest….THEMSELVES.
7. Always look directly at the person you are speaking to.
8. Laugh at yourself. When you do you give people permission to laugh at themselves.
9. Start believing that people are your most valuable resource.
10.Always give credit, don’t take credit.
11.Care about the health and well being of people.
12. When you must correct another person always do so gently and in private.
13. Always give another person the benefit of the doubt.
14. Never treat people like numbers or things.
15. Learn and use their first names.
16. Never give the impression that you are too busy or rushed to care.
17. Never use sarcasm in conversation. It’s a low form of humor and can be hurtful.
18. Never try to make yourself look good by making someone else look bad.
19. Share cute, funny, clean stories with those you work with and invite them to do likewise.
20. Laugh and play together as a group. There is a bonding power in laughter and play.
21.When you do or say something hurtful always be big enough to apologize. ” I’m sorry ” is one of the most powerful phrases in any language
22. Smile. There is power in a smile and life is just too short not to.

TESTIMONIALS

“We brought Mike in to speak to two very different groups: once for thirty people who all work in the same department, and then for a group of over 300 teachers from ESL programs in several communities across Ontario. It doesn’t seem to matter how many people you put in front of him — but Mike’s skill with the larger group was truly impressive.

It’s fascinating to watch someone keep 300 people mesmerized for over three hours. He was definitely the one in charge, but the audience felt like they were part of the presentation. It’s quite wonderful to sit and laugh for hours at a time … it’s later that you recognize just how profound Mike’s message is.”

Humour in The Snow…(A true story)

By | Humor in the workplace, Humour, laughter therapy, Uncategorized | No Comments

Humour in the Snow… by Mike Moore

Life does bring about changes in our lives often without us realizing it. Such was the case with Carol ( my wife) and I recently.

The snow had fallen over night to the tune of 8 to10 cm. Carol, ( a Timmins girl who loves the winter) suggested that we go out and make snow angels on the front lawn… like we used to. Being a husband who always wants to please his wife, I agreed.

There we were standing facing one another on the front lawn ready to fall backward into the freshly fallen snow…laughing our hearts out. We fell, waved our hands and feet and voila the angels appeared.

Now hear comes the revelation..WE COULDN’T GET UP. Our minds were youthful but something weird had happened to our bodies. We could not stand up. I had to crawl over to the lilac tree and hoist myself up by grabbing on to the trunk. Then I could help my wife.

The laughter was something to behold……side splitting!!

Lesson learned? When you are of a certain age never make snow angels at the same time. Do it individually so you can be available to help the other up after the angel appears. The important thing here is to never stop wanting to make snow angels even if the flesh is weaker than it used to be.

True Story.

After one of my talks a man came up to me and said,” I bought your book ” Light Up With

Laughter” the last time I heard you speak and now I keep it in the bathroom and read it often.

” Then, with a twinkle in his eye, he added, ” I really find it moves me.”

I started to laugh and said,” Well , if you’re going to be moved that’s the place you want it to happen.”

* What Can You Say After This?

I noticed that my gas gauge was pushing empty and decided to pull into a service station to fill up.

A nice young man about 35 years of age began filling the tank as I made small talk to pass the time.

He had a rather sad look about him so I said, ” How are things going, Buddy?” He looked at me and replied, ” Other than the

fact that I’m living from pay to pay, making minimum wage and find it impossible to get a woman to go out with me….Fantastic.

New Song: Walking the World Without You

By | Anxiety, grieving, grieving, Inspiration, music, Spirituality, Uncategorized | No Comments

This song was inspired by the fact that a lot of friends, family and cherished pets are passing on leaving us lost, alone and devastated. The melody has been echoing in my mind for some months and the words just came recently as I reflected on the brevity of life and the reality of death. I hope you like it and don’t find it too sad.
