Did You Hear the One About the Economist?
Yoram Bauman calls himself the “world’s only stand-up
economist.” Bauman has written a graphic novel, “The
Cartoon Introduction to Economics” and uses (gasp!) humor
to teach economic theory. Yes, this hilarious economist
(and you thought that was an oxymoron) can explain derivates
in a humorous way!
The lesson: if someone can make economic theory highly
entertaining then there’s no excuse NOT to make any of
your corporate messages a little more engaging, effective
and yes, even fun.
Mike’s Fun at Work Tip
Hold a Friday afternoon “team huddle” and review everyone’s
“plays of the week” and accomplishments of the week as a way
to end the week on a high note, build momentum for the
following week and remind folks that you probably
accomplished more than you realized. Or not.
Quote of the Week
“The stone age didn’t end because they ran out of stones.”
