login Using Humour Strategically to Become a Better Leader - Signpost 2 Grow - Signpost 2 Grow

Discover how gender and humour are related to (in)equality in the workplace and find out how you can harness the power of humour to become a better leader. 

The use of humour in the workplace gets mixed reviews. While humour can create positive energy in teams and help to improve leaders’ likeability, humour can also destroy a manager’s credibility, prevent them from being taken seriously and offend people.

Take part in this workshop and discussion to find out how humour effects that workplace.
