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 more successful communication. Consider this: Light-hearted leaders earn more on average than their more dour peers; fun workplaces breed more loyal employees and happier customers; and business people who are considered humorous are vastly more likely to get their messages across—in sales presentations, customer meetings or employee gatherings.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 provides 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 1 million-member database—that cuts against the grain of traditional business thinking to reveal that great companies consistently earn significantly higher marks for fun.With compelling research and light-hearted insight, The Levity Effect turns business on its head to prove that a fun and engaging workplace leads to focused employees, satisfied customers and more effective communication.

The Integrity Advantage
Building Trust and Enhancing Performance

In a thought-provoking address, bestselling author Adrian Gostick shows why effective leadership is first and foremost a personal relationship, with trust and credibility as the cornerstones. The author takes attendees through real examples of real managers in action and reveals the key behaviors and characteristics that can strengthen your leaders' capacity for developing and sustaining trust in their business lives.

Gostick will teach participants how to resolve conflicts and tensions on the basis of principles, not positions. He also shows how taking the high road will create a competitive advantage for leaders and their businesses:

• To help leaders gauge and enhance their own personal level
of integrity
• To recognize and hire people of character
• To build a culture of integrity throughout your organization

Here’s the bottom line: If employees don’t believe their leaders are honest, they won’t follow them. If clients and potential clients don’t believe in the trustworthiness of the organization, they’ll buy elsewhere. Years of empirical data prove this simple point: Ethical organizations outperform unethical ones. It’s that simple.
