Soft Skills for Leaders with Lisa Evans

Jul 19, 2021

Can you really use humour tastefully in the workplace?

The idea of using humour in the workplace is not new, however it’s not particularly common. When used correctly, humour has the potential to improve relationships at work. But if used incorrectly, or not at the right time, it can damage your reputation and credibility. 

In business and in the workplace, the main purpose of humour isn’t to get laughs or crack jokes. The goal of using humour in the workplace is to increase engagement and connection. 

In this episode, Humour Coach, Kate Burr shares with us how to use humour in the workplace and how leaders can be more engaging with authentic humour to connect and influence their teams.
