Paul Osincup | Leveraging Levity: Humor as a Strategy for Workplace Positivity
More than one-third of Americans experience chronic stress at work and 85% report not being happy at work. 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.
Be on the Lookout: Watch for emails from CTL with invitations for various writing, coaching, media, and publishing opportunities. Emails go out to all CTL Associates several times each month, so be sure to check them out!
