Being firm and serious when you need to be is important, but if overused, it can lose its authority and make you unapproachable. Real laughter is a form of connection. I think that leaders who laugh and have fun create better cultures. They create a connection that's based on authenticity and truth - and that is one of the most potent forms of engagement.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. Why levity is a leadership skill.
  2. The reason integrating laughter into your work is so critical.
  3. Why laughter, when you're in a leadership role, is so contagious.
  4. Laughter is the best medicine, and "truth be told, those of us who know this also make the best healers." ~ Kris
