About this title

Synopsis:

The benefits of the Levity Effect are not conjecture but are built on extensive research and case studies from some of the world's most successful organizations. New York Times-bestselling authors Adrian Gostick and Scott Christopher provide powerful examples from Boeing, Nike, KPMG, Yamaha, Enterprise, Zappos and dozens of others, showing how lightening up can drive real business results. The book also outlines the extensive research into the subject--studies that cut against the grain of traditional business thinking--including compelling data from the Great Place to Work® Institute's 1-million-person database, which reveals that "Great" companies consistently earn significantly higher marks for "fun."p>In The Levity Effect, the authors will organize their case around a series of "effects" that happen when you lead with levity. The book will outline the extensive research into the subject--studies that cut against the grain of traditional business thinking. It will also build on the authors' consulting work to create fun and engaging cultures with some of the world's largest organizations and will include interviews with successful people who have learned to use humor in their lives.

From the Inside Flap:

If you think work is no laughing matter, the joke's on you. The Levity Effect uses serious science to reveal the remarkable power of fun and humor in building a productive, engaged, and loyal workforce...and a more successful you.

If you doubt levity is good for business, consider this: lighthearted leaders earn more on average than their more dour peers; entertaining workplaces breed more loyal employees and happier customers; and employees who are considered humorous are vastly more likely to get promoted—especially to senior positions.

The benefits of the levity effect are built on extensive research and case studies from some of the world's most successful organizations. Bestselling author Adrian Gostick and humorist Scott Christopher provide powerful examples of leaders from Boeing, Nike, KPMG, Yamaha, Enterprise, Zappos, and dozens of others, all of which prove that lightening up leads to real business results.

The Levity Effect also presents extensive research into the subject—including compelling data from the Great Place to Work® Institute's one million-member database—that cuts against the grain of traditional business thinking to reveal that great companies consistently earn significantly higher marks for fun.

The Levity Effect is for anyone who wants to build an engaging, productive work culture and a more successful career. With interviews, extensive research, and lighthearted insight, The Levity Effect turns traditional business thinking on its head to prove again and again that a fun and engaging workplace leads to better business, more focused employees, and satisfied customers.
