Maybe you think, that there is no funny leadership. But I believe your are wrong.
Laughter helps you to cope with stress, conflicts and pain. That’s why a leader should have a good sense of humour.
Nothing works faster to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Laugh at yourself. That’s best.
Remember Monty Python’s song:
“Always Look on the Bright Side of Life“?:
“…You’ll see it’s all a show.
Keep ’em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.”
Laughter promotes performance
Not only your own performance gets better, but also that of your entire team. Various studies have shown that people who have humour generally appear more likeable and are perceived as more competent.
Humour improves the working atmosphere, which leads to better functioning of work processes.
Better dealing with difficult situations
Managers who humorously defuse difficult situations enjoy great acceptance. Using humour as a means of communication in everyday work is a strategy for success. Because studies show wherever people laugh, employees feel comfortable and work is usually more and better.
Laughter, joy and happiness are terms that convey a positive and satisfied view of the world. People who surround themselves with a humorous aura are always perceived as positive by others.
