Humor as a Tool in the Workplace
October 17, 2019
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
-Lou Holtz

Jerry Parr, writing in the book, Child Development II, explains that “humor is a reflection of a director’s respect for the staff. A director who can find humor in situations and deals with staff issues in a way that the messages are clear, the behaviors are modified, and the team is left intact is demonstrating that a win-win ending is better for the staff, children, and families. If a director truly respects the staff, then finding the internal resources to replace ego and temper with sensitivity and humor becomes a natural management tool.”
