The pandemic and the emerging trends of the 21st century workplace have forced leaders to pivot suddenly, leading to an increase in workload, stress, and pessimism. New skills and strategies are required to face these demands, including the ability to tap into our own creativity to engage and inspire our teams to tap into theirs. Having a skill like humor in your leadership toolkit provides leaders and teams the mental agility to respond to the stress of uncertainty and adversity faster and more effectively.
