Make 'Em Laugh.
Tamblyn, Doni
Training, v37 n8 p36,38,40,42 Aug 2000
Debunks five myths about using humor in training: (1) the subject is too serious; (2) "I'm not funny"; (3) someone will be offended; (4) it won't help; and (5) it is distracting. Suggests that humor builds rapport, encourages creativity, makes learners feel safe, reduces fatigue, and activates long-term memory. (JOW)
