Paul Osincup | Leveraging Levity: Humor as a Strategy for Workplace Positivity

This high-energy, funny, and content-rich talk will explore both why and how to use humor as a tool for positivity, productivity, and success at work. Although it's packed full of actionable and research-based ideas for implementation in the work of symposium attendees and their clients, this talk is only appropriate for those who enjoy laughing.
