THIRD TERM ENGLISH EXAMINATION
PART ONE : READING AND INTERPRETING (15 pts)
Read the text and do the activities:
The idea that humour can be developed as a managerial “tool” is prevalent in a range of industrials, professional and managerial literature which suggests practical things that managers can do to facilitate humour at work.
Humour is becoming more accepted, more supported in most workplaces since a sense of joy and play is not unprofessional or unintelligent but is associated with the most creative minds. Sociologists suggest that businesses must begin to supplant simple-minded toughness with the powerful “humour skills” of fluidity and adaptability. One principal key of excellence in business is “human and humour resources”; happy workers produce happy results, which are vital to the healthy development of human resources.
Humour is not only the tool of the organizational saboteur but also the tool of the initiator, the motivator and the survivor; it has countless applications in the workplace.
It was observed that being over-serious can get in the way of effective social relationships and that humour can be used as a “tool” to maintain control of the situation.
