In these economically and post-pandemic unknown times, Jim Jelinske, MS believes that in order to improve morale, motivate employees, spark creativity, build trust, and improve productivity in the workplace our sense of humor is the most essential human resource we have to do so. Humor is one of the healthiest and most powerful methods to help provide perspective on life’s “grunge” (technical word for stress). Discover the potential for humor in your life and the steps in making your humor successful. Techniques to enhance your humor will be discussed and demonstrated. Jim graduated with his bachelor’s degree in social work and a master’s degree in business management. Jim also has his DMA (Doesn’t Mean Anything). Jim has spent over 40 years working in the human service field, teaching, training and working with people to enhance their thinking and impact their lives. Jim currently runs his own business Creative Education Services conducting educational programs for schools, organizations and businesses throughout the country on the topics of Conflict, Communication, Motivation and the “You Can’t Be Serious” humor stress relief presentation.
