Which is why more and more organizations are looking to make humor an integral part of their culture, and why, along with my two co-curators, we launched Stand-Up Strategist earlier this year – to recognize and celebrate the important role of humor in corporate leadership and culture. So without further ado, a little something to make you laugh.
