ASOA General Session Highlights

ASOA Saturday Opening General Session "Lead with Levity"- Karyn Buxman, RN,MS,CSP,CPAE

Successful people—in business, politics and life in general—have something in common: they understand that humor is an important trait for effective leaders. Ronald Reagan was a master at using humor on the world stage; the characters in M*A*S*H used humor to retain their sanity amid horrendous conditions; and you can learn how to use humor effectively in your daily work lives. Properly used, humor is a dynamic strategy that strengthens resilience, enhances communication, and increases engagement. Karyn uses (hysterical) personal anecdotes, (solid) medical research, and (practical) tips to help you enhance your humor skills in the service of better leadership.
