Assessments in the Workplace

Giving potential employees a behavioral profile, sometimes called a personality assessment, is an important part of the hiring process. One thing hiring managers fail to realize, is that the assessment is not the only piece of criteria you should consider. This is to aid you in the hiring process. However, if it is not administered with the right mindset, it could potentially damage your business.

Exceptional Leaders Display a Sense of Humor

You all know that none of us are getting out of this alive; so why take things so seriously? Many great leaders have had a terrific sense of humor in good times and bad. These include Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Winston Churchill, and Ronald Reagan.

Not taking yourself or external events so seriously, even in dire situations, releases stress. Others around you are more at ease. Scientific studies have shown that moods are contagious and can be motivational. Seeing the humor in situations creates positive feelings. Positive moods generate positive action. Negative moods generate negative action or inaction.
