Blog Summary

On the latest recording of our radio show and I had on Karyn Buxman, a hall of fame speaker, author, and “neurohumorist.” She studies the relationship between humor and health, and humor and leadership, and what goes on in our brain when we use humor. If you have any interest in this, go and download our podcast to hear about 45 minutes broken into 3 segments. One thing that she talked about is that humor, being vulnerable and telling a self-deprecating joke to someone, is a great way to build bond between people. Think about your past, specifically the things that happened to you that are funny, and go write a skeleton of a story. You don’t have to memorize it, but know the main parts of it. Then, when you want to break the ice with somebody at a meeting, gathering, or social, go ahead and tell that story, and the both of you can get a laugh and connect. Laughing about yourself shows that you’re approachable and able to make a connection. For more, check our podcast, as she talks more about what happens to us physically and socially, and how leaders can use this as a competitive advantage.
