I think having a sense of humor is one of the most important qualities one should posses, especially if they are in a leadership position.
I have personally witnessed people who have to work with someone in a leadership role who ruled with an “iron fist” and no sense of humor at all. Although the staff got their jobs done and did them well, they hated their job because of their leader.
We know that levity in the workplace makes for happier and healthier employees and if the employees are happy, the customers are happy and in return the organization owners are very happy.
I cannot imagine working day-in-and-day-out at a place that was not fun. Life is just too short for that. A great leader knows how to bring levity to the workplace and inspire their employees to get their job done and enjoy it.
I challenge you today to have fun at work with your coworkers and those you serve. Make their day a great one!
“Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing.” ~Mark Twain
