Hi, I am writing a column titled “The Civil Service Career Coach” which is published in NARFE magazine (National Association for Retired and Active Federal Employees.” It comes out quarterly. The last two columns were on RIFs and VERA’s – so I wanted to make the next one lighter.
I have the exciting job of writing a serious column on humor- seriously! The column is about how to use humor constructively in the workplace. I have a great interview with Mark Gorkin, the Stress Doc (He’s the guy who writes about practicing Safe Stress) and now am interested in some actual stories- times when you or someone you know has used humor constructively to move a situation forward. Clean and publishable only smile. Let me know if you want to be anonymous or quoted.
I attached a copy of one of my columns- not sure how that works, but it’s copyrighted, so please respect that. I thought you might want to read one.
