Leadership is Not a Sitcom, but Humor Shows Up Whether We're Ready or Not with Geoff McLachlan
September 6, 2023
Leadership is super serious, every day, all the time.
Unless you've got a sense of humor, at all.
The No More Leadership BS team takes leadership seriously and recognize that the decisions leaders make can be significant and life-changing. At the same time, people like to be engaged and entertained along with their information (see Sesame Street for an example).
Effective leaders balance the needs of the drama of the moment and the opportunity to appreciate humor. As leaders, we have seen (or instigated) silliness as professionals. The purpose is connection. People find relationships and build trust through humor. Why go against the grain when humor is so fun?!?
The team brings to you some stories and thoughts that are meant to maybe give you a smile and also spark your thoughts on how you can bring humor into the workplace. You don't need to write a stand-up routine, but appreciating the joy, lightheartedness, and humor is just as powerful as bringing the funny.
If you think about sparking joy at work or if you have questions about how to make your super-serious workplace a little less dramatic, please contact us.
