The Levity Effect: It Pays to Lighten Up

Does FUN affect engagement?

The evidence is abundant: it pays to lighten up. From greater employee engagement to earning a better paycheck, leaders who embrace levity enrich the lives of their direct reports and reap personal rewards as well. In this humor-laced session, bestselling author Scott Christopher (The Levity Effect: Why It Pays to Lighten Up and People People) reveals how tapping your “lighter side” brings tangible, positive results.

Attendees learn what constitutes levity--Latitude, Attitude and Gratitude, how to discover their own “sense” of humor, how to effectively recognize employee accomplishments, and what successful organizations are doing to cultivate a more people-friendly  work environment. Amid audience interaction and lots of laughter, attendees experience firsthand ‘the levity effect’ in action.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the relevance of appropriate workplace levity and its relationship to employee retention, satisfaction and engagement;
  • Learn what other organizations are doing to incorporate levity in their communications, meetings, sales calls and the results.
  • Learn practical methods (latitude, attitude, gratitude) to lighten up at work and home and the expected returns.
  • Set one specific, executable ‘Levity’ goal to take back to work and accomplish.

People People

In an increasingly impersonal world where texts, tweets and emails have replaced warm-blooded, face-to-face interactions, People People have become rarer and, significantly, more valuable than ever before. At work, those with the ‘human touch’ foster stronger professional associations, get promoted faster and make more money than their colder counterparts. The results are similar on an organizational level when whole companies strive for a greater people focus.

Meanwhile, many ‘great’ or ‘best’ companies struggle with a sense of entitlement from their workforce.  People People arms individuals at work and at home with the tools they need to develop a more ‘people first’ attitude while changing “what have you done for me lately?” to “what more can I do to contribute?”

The Daily Carrot Principle

Simple but powerful employee recognition that aligns with business strategies and pushes performance.

Tweaks

Minor adjustments at work and at home that produce major results.
