Funny Means Money: Humor as a Competitive Business Edge

Forbes Magazine says, “Using humor increases attentiveness and persuasiveness.” Applied humor is a skill and strategy that can benefit all leaders and salespeople—and benefits your bottom line, too. Neurological and psychological research indicates that when people share humor, they communicate more effectively, they are more open to considering each other’s points-of-view, and they form bonds more quickly—all of which are important outcomes for leaders, salespeople and managers. 

Karyn Buxman is a neurohumorist and a specialist in helping leaders and employees master “applied humor”—the underutilized tool for fostering better business relationships. Karyn is a Speaker Hall of Fame member, and one of a handful of experts worldwide who has the rare ability to translate cutting-edge research into engaging presentations. 

Lead with Levity: Humor as a Strategic Leadership Tool

Wharton (Business) Magazine says, “Humorous thinking has parallels to the way we should be thinking in business. It has a lot to do with creativity and leadership.”Masterful leaders engage “the whole person”—and they have a wide range of skills for doing that. Have you considered humor as a leadership skill? Forbes Magazine adds, “For a leader, humor helps you…by increasing attentiveness and persuasiveness.” Properly used, humor is a dynamic strategy that strengthens resilience, enhances communication, and increases engagement. 

Karyn uses (hysterical) personal anecdotes, (solid) medical research, and (practical) tips to help your audience enhance their humor skills in the service of better leadership. As a neurohumorist, she has been presenting and consulting on applied humor for 20 years (and is one of only 167 people worldwide inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame). 

Humor Is Power: Leveraging Levity for Fun & Profit

Everybody knows that “Knowledge is power”—but few know that “Humor is power,” too. Forbes magazine says, “Old-school HR people are quick to say that humor is dangerous in the office. But research indicates that those looking for an edge may want to think more critically about their funny bones.” This does not mean that you should aim to be the Robin Williams of leadership or sales! But it does mean that humor—applied strategically—is a powerful business skill and strategy.
