Humor and leadership: How might it matter?

Join the Alumni Association for a series of leadership sessions to help Redbirds develop and expand their tool kits. These sessions are designed for all alumni to learn key takeaways to implement in their workspaces.

Appropriate humor might play a vital role in leadership effectiveness.  There are certainly “interpersonal” benefits to humor.  For example, humor can be useful in reducing and managing conflict, reduce barriers to open communication, and facilitates stronger interpersonal relationships. This session will focus on the types of humor that are beneficial to leaders and those that are not, how humor can provide interpersonal benefits to leaders and the organization, and how humor might be indicative of other key leadership traits.

When: noon–1 p.m. (CST), Wednesday, November 11
Where: Join via Zoom on any mobile device or computer
