PWN London - Workshop: Humour In Leadership

22 November 2018 18:30 - 21:00

Join us for a fascinating workshop which will give you tools and techniques on how to use humour to your advantage and make you a better leader.

Today, the key to personal and professional success lies in our interpersonal skills and our capacity to handle relationships judiciously and empathetically.

The research:
Dr. Vanessa Marcié, VP Business Development, London and Partners and Prof. Sucheta Nadkarni, Director of the Cambridge Wo+Men's Leadership Centre, co-authored a research paper about how humour is a powerful leadership tool for interactions in the workplace. 

The research demonstrates the positive consequences of using humour in the workplace;
in the way leaders communicate, lead teams, and deliver high-performance results.

Moreover, humour could be a key female leaders’ strategy to enhance their performance and thrive in a masculine world."

The workshop:
The use of humour in the workplace gets mixed reviews. While humour can create positive
energy in teams and help to improve leaders’ likeability, it can also destroy a manager’s credibility, prevent them from being taken seriously and offend people. 

Yet, how do male and female leaders use humour differently in the workplace?

A study conducted at University of Cambridge Judge Business School, found that women often hold back in using humour even when it may be effective – and this represents a major lost opportunity in gender equality in the workplace.

Workshop tools, tips and lessons:
