Love to Laugh: Looking for the Humor at Work

Presented by Libby Roberts

Carol Burnett, one of the funniest people to walk the earth, once said, "I'm really not that funny in real life. But I am the best audience one could find. I love to laugh." This attitude toward laughter led Burnett to great success on her self-titled comedy variety show, where she taught us how laughter can enrich and enliven the workplace.

What roles do comedy, humor, and laughter play in your organization? In your department? On your team? How can more fun lead to more productivity, team cohesion, and better results?

In this session, we'll discuss the benefits of humor at work and introduce you to different types of humor. We'll give you strategies to effectively use different types of humor to uplift colleauges and improve culture, teamwork, and creativity. Most importantly, we'll share some laughs!
