I’m very lucky to be joined on the show today by 2 wonderful guests, Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas who are here to talk about humor in business.
Today we talk about humor in the workplace, the types of humor, the risks and how it can be a powerful culture tool.
Jennifer is a behavioral psychologist, author and the General Atlantic Professor at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. Her research focuses on time, money, and happiness. She was unanimously voted the least funny person in her family.
Naomi Bagdonas is a Lecturer in Management at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Naomi designs and facilities immersive workshops for groups of executives in Deloitte’s Greenhouse. She has trained at Upright Citizens Brigade and BATS, worked at IDEO, and has been making SNL-inspired shorts in her living room since before she could lift the VHS recorder. She has since built muscle mass.
