Shrinking workforces. Oppressive labor environments. Disengaged employees. Now, more than ever before, the manager that can mix in some mirth and lead with levity can affect positive, productive change. Lighten Up: Managing With Mirth Ain't Rocket Surgery teaches the whys and hows of using humor to build a culture that frees employee creativity, fosters good feelings, pushes productivity, and is good for the body and soul. Imagine the impact you'll have when you learn to unleash your unique brand of humor in the right place and at the right time. Raise your employees' spirits, build loyalty and trust, and most importantly, get results by simply lightening up a little. The difference between a leader who demands results and one who actually gets them can simply be a question of perspective. Are yours jaws constantly clenched? Do you have deep forehead wrinkles from relentless brow knitting? Sometimes just forcing yourself to smile or laugh is enough to drive away the spirit-sapping seriousness that plagues most managers and leaders. Lighten Up isn't so much about rapid-fire wit or spinning a hilarious yarn as it is about loosening up and allowing others to do the same.
