I have yet to receive a product I ordered online on August 29 th . It’s late by anyone’s standards, particularly in the age of Amazon Prime, where you barely finish placing your order before there’s a courier at the door.

Truly human leadership skills - leading with empathy

Truly_human_Leadership_Skils_AdobeStock_44701737
What IS Empathy? Put simply, empathy is understanding how someone else is feeling by putting yourself in their shoes, or more commonly by imagining being in their shoes.

Stand-up comic Ryan Niemiller’s routine about how ‘people su-ck at empathy’ is a funny take...

Menopause for thought

Meno_people
At Laughology we like to help people to think differently about the menopause. It can be an extremely challenging time for a significant proportion of women and the people they live and work closely with. Former Chair of the British Menopause Society, Dr Heather Currie, writes: “The menopause is important and can have significant consequences, but should not be dreaded as...

If I said to you that I had a sore arm what would your immediate thoughts be?
Why are you telling me?
I don’t know much about arms.
What if just talking about it makes your arm feel worse?
What if I say the wrong thing and your arm falls off?

Have you ever imagined you were in charge, you know, of everything? If I were Prime Minister, I would bring in a law against ugg boots, a total ban on Mondays, and ensure that everyone had access to decent mental health services AND that EVERYONE used them.

I am a Laughologist who happens to be gay. So yes, I am doubly happy! Life is one long Mardi Gras for me full of music, gaiety and laughter. Actually it’s not that far from the truth, I suppose.
