Lead With Laughs: How Humor Inspires A Creative And Engaged Workplace

Presented by:David Horning, Chief Experience Officer at Water Cooler Comedy

We have been conditioned to believe that “work isn’t the time or place to laugh,” but studies have conclusively shown that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Organizations that have integrated humor into their workplace culture have seen increases in productivity, collaboration and communication, and the ability to adapt to the adversity of uncertainty, all while showing a reduction in workplace stress, and a boost in morale.

In a presentation deemed “a wake-up call for businesses,” “incredibly timely,” and “wildly unprofessional,” by past audiences, David introduces humor as a skill that can be used to springboard the unintended side effects of disruption. Equal parts levity and learning, Lead With Laughs has it all: scientific studies, hilarious anecdotes, and groundbreaking studies in employee engagement, but most importantly, a life hack you can use to disrupt the disruption and create a workplace people want to be.

You don’t even have to be funny to do it!
