Humor plays a key role in our leadership. Our actions play a more definitive role in our influence than our words. If you’re having more bad hair days than normal, trust me, you’re not alone.
If you have serious doubts about the value of humor in the workplace, I hope to change your mind long before you reach the end of this episode.
Laughter is the Best Medicine. It’s a cliché because it’s true. A good laugh reduces blood pressure, increases our heart rate, massages our internal organs and reduces serum cortical (a hormone released in response to stress). People who have a positive, healthy sense of humor may, according to some researchers, get sick less often and recover more quickly from illnesses. So if you want to live a healthier life, or if you want to have healthy employees and reduce absenteeism rates, then you can’t be serious!
