Leadership Discourse at Work: Interactions of Humour, Gender and Workplace Culture 2009th Edition
by S. Schnurr (Author)
Employing a discourse analytical approach this book focuses on the under-researched strategy of humour to illustrate how discursive performances of leadership are influenced by gender and workplace culture. Far from being a superfluous strategy that distracts from business, humour performs a myriad of important functions in the workplace context.
