Humor has been related to a number of positive effects when used by leaders: an increased ability to cope with work stressors, better work relationships, a happier, more connected, supportive, and productive workforce, an increased sense of belonging, which improves morale and enhances group cohesiveness, and even a positive impact on larger organizational outcomes. Some leaders who enhanced their leadership style with humor have even won cars and other valuable prizes, but this is not the norm. This book addresses how humor can be used to enhance leadership effectiveness with an emphasis on improved communication and team building. Guidelines for the use of humor are discussed, emphasizing the importance of appropriate humor and educating staff on the dangers of using inappropriate humor. The role of humor in empowerment is discussed as are humor strategies and habits leaders can utilize in the workplace. My (that is me, the author) leadership effectiveness rating by anonymous survey was 99% and my employee engagement rating was 91%, while working as a hospital director. These ratings are backed up by actual documentation in the book, not just an author telling you what he’s done without valid or reliable proof.
A man dreams through the eyes of a woman he’s never met, setting out to find love that might be a figment of his imagination. Joe Riley has a successful, by-design life in the world of finance. He loves order, discipline, the tangible, the measurable. In pursuit of success he’s spurned attachment, keeping romantic entanglements “on an island” while leaving his life and heart invulnerable. When he begins to dream of a woman half a world away he’s never encountered, his notions of practicality and planning are called into question. In a search that variously brings him to the psychologist’s office, a medium’s table, and from the Rocky Mountains to the streets of London, England, Joe begins to fall for the woman of his dreams. In the process, he’s beset by innumerable questions: Is he going mad? Might she actually exist? If so, why does he see through her eyes? Why is he party to visions that are either the greatest privacy invasion of all time, or a possible cosmic match in the making? In the quest for answers, Joe confronts the deeper questions that assail most of us who dare open our hearts: Will I be enough? Will they love me when it stops being easy? Will they stay? Will they sweep me up, just to watch me fall?
