By Adrian Gostick & Scott Christopher.

The book uses serious science to reveal the remarkable power of humour and fun in work, and demonstrates that leaders who are light-hearted earn more on average than their peers. Entertaining workplaces have more loyal employees. Employees who are considered humorous are vastly more likely to get promoted.

The benefits of the Levity Effect are not based on speculation, but are built on extensive research and case studies from some of the world’s most successful organisations. New York Times-bestselling authors Adrian Gostick and Scott Christopher provide powerful examples from Boeing, Nike, KPMG, Yamaha, Enterprise and Zappos. These models show how lightening up can drive real results in the organisation.
