Paul's Power Points.
Three lessons Marty shared that jumped out to me.
1. Adding humour doesn't mean you need to try and be a comedian or start telling jokes, like three men walked into a bar...type stuff. Business humour is different to working in a comedy club and it starts with you simply sharing your own humourous stories.
2. There are only three acceptable targets for business humour. Deviate from these three and you run the real risk of upsetting people and your attempts to add humour could backfiring badly. Marty's first rule to safe humour is, "If you ain't one of them, don't make fun of them".
3. One of the most beneficial things you can do to enhance the customer experience is look for those aspects of doing business with you that you know your customers find tedious, boring or frustrating and sprinkle some humour into the process so your clients see the funny side of it.
