Summary A unique, non-traditional, Organizational Behavioral-oriented book that is geared toward flexible leadership, and that offers a series of funny, yet thought-provoking, motivating, growth-oriented jokes and humor anecdotes that will help readers tap into their internal locus of control. With the emergence of previous 'soft skills' such as empathy, emotional intelligence, compassion, and listening as important leadership qualities in the 21st century, there is an increased need to cultivate qualities that have long been suppressed. Humor is one of them. It is not just pleasant for interpersonal relations, but gets absorbed with more eagerness, and has a healthy effect. The 75 stories in Teaching Leadership and Organizational Behavior through Humor deal with issues in a broad scope of settings, making this book not just useful in higher education, but also for coaches, trainers, and students in corporate workshops. Read, smile, laugh, contemplate, and get into action!.
