We love to explore the world and look for different kind of ways to improve business and accelerate innovation. By exploring we found out that in work-life a “terminal state of seriousness” is going on; people don’t really enjoy their work (anymore), they stopped being curious and they stopped asking questions that matter. This is a pitty, because work can ánd should be fun as well. That’s why we decided to do extensive research about the effects of humor and we came to the conclusion that humor is a very serious thing, and even more important, a great tool for organizational impact. Therefore, Jaspar Roos decided to launch CHO (if you think that’s short for Chief Humor Officer, you’re correct! Congratulations, fame and fortune await you). CHO (in which the H also stands for Human, Happiness and Hitality) is a humorous initiative that does not ónly bring back the fun into organizations. No, it is a (research) movement as well as action based consultancy where humor is our human-centered formula for organizational success!
Humor, Happiness, a Human-approach ánd fun at work can counteract the following:
- Lack of creativity and innovation;
- Ineffective communication;
- Poor (team) performance;
- Poor interpersonal relations;
- Ineffective collaboration;
- Unreadiness for change;
- Organizational disastrous taboos.
