The Stand-Up Strategist: Leading with Humour
In the beginning, there was humor and there was laughter. And it was good. But then, work became suffocatingly serious. Until now. Today, we stand at the precipice of a new era. Future-shaping business leaders are re-discovering the power of humour as a vital driver of organizational success. This TEDxBreda Talk of Jamie Anderson presents the findings of his research on the core benefits of humour in the workplace, as well as an intuitive framework for its application in leadership. Jamie is an Australian, living in Antwerp where he is a professor of Strategic Management at Antwerp Management School. Named as a “management guru” in the Financial Times, Jamie has also been included on a list of the world’s “top 25 management thinkers” by the journal Business Strategy Review. His teaching focuses on the creativity, innovation and leadership skills that are needed to thrive in our complex world.
