Having a laugh? Why you should use humour as a leadership tool, and how to get it right
Humour is widely considered essential in personal relationships, but in leaders, it’s seen as an ancillary behavior. Though some leaders use humour instinctively, many more could wield it purposefully.
Humour helps build interpersonal trust, high-quality work relationships and influences behaviors and attitudes that matter to leadership effectiveness, including employee performance, job satisfaction, organisational commitment, and creativity.
