Reminder: Program on ‘Humor Leadership’
The Academic Staff Professional Development Programming Committee invites all members of the Academic Staff to a presentation on “Humor Leadership — Improving Productivity and Morale” by guest presenter Liysa Callsen on Thursday, Jan. 16, from 11 a.m. to noon in the 1965 Room. Callsen is a Lakeshore area resident who trained with Chicago’s Second City comedy troupe and now works as a hospital fundraiser when she’s not doing standup or professional speaking. “Liysa will share the benefits and importance of humor in the workplace. Think of it as light-hearted-ness for the soul,” the invitation reads.
Participants will learn how:
• You don’t need to be a comic to lead with humor
• Grant permission for laughs — set an example as the leader
• Do’s and don’ts to getting started
• Practical, inexpensive and easy ideas for productivity with humor
