Skip About this course

In this course, you’ll explore the five enablers of humor in remote teams: safety, connectedness, agency, growth, and purpose. You’ll learn the significance of each enabler, how they create the conditions for joy to flourish, and how to amplify them. Next, you’ll take a diagnostic designed to help you understand which enablers your team members most naturally channel, and where you have the greatest opportunity to grow. Finally, you’ll take on team building activities to strengthen these enablers within your organization.

This is Course 2 of 3 in the Remotely Humorous Program taught by Naomi Bagdonas and Connor Diemand-Yauman are leading experts who have taught at Stanford's Graduate School of Business.
