Generating laughs is an official corporate motto at Southwest and the airlines encourages the use of humour and also tests for humour as part of its recruitment process. Humour is now serious business!
Humour? You have to be kidding, you might say. ‘I’m not funny, and definitely not at work’! Anyone who can laugh has a humour muscle. You just need to learn how to flex it. Humour in business is not telling jokes it’s about using ‘Humour Power’. Humour power is using humour skilfully, purposefully and appropriately to connect, engage and inspire.
Humour power can be taught and learnt, and no matter what your message or your industry, humour can help you stand out and succeed.
In business, humour is the new frontier in influence, engagement and performance.
