When you go to this blog you are engaged by funny cartoons in each post. This compliments the blog theme and highlights the comfortable navigation of the site.
What I also like about the site is that the design provides an opportunity to share, on the front page, what the site is all about. This makes me want to go beyond the cartoons to get to more of the meaty substance.
Many of us dream of being successful at work but are unsure how to make this dream reality. At Humorous Reality our focus is helping you develop a successful work life and culture in your office and organization.
We accomplish this by helping you realize this dream with a little humor while keeping it real. It is this selective mixture of humor and reality which allows you, co-workers and direct reports to embrace, understand, and implement strategies developing into a more highly engaged and productive workforce.
Harry Humorous and Rita Reality work together in a cartoon format on this blog to deliver timely information and content that you can use now.
One of my favorate posts is on Listening. Which is also one of my passionate topics. They provide eight(8) clear strategies to improve your listening skills. An must in any job situation. In addition I was impressed with the opportunity to include my Twitter Id. I need to add it to this site as well.
I think that they could benefit from a separate page on the site for meeting planners who want to know their training and speaking details. As well as anyone needing personal coaching. The current economic situation in the US makes the skill set of the authors in more demand beyond the blogging platform. In additon, I wanted to see what product offerings they had available.
So, thanks to the authors of this blog that both educates as well as entertain. Go visit and be sure to laugh a bit as well and soak in the cutting edge content presented by two great professionals.
