In this work, we report that adaptive humor styles employed by leader buffers job related positive affective well-being of employees whereas maladaptive humor styles employed by leaders buffers job related negative affective well-being of employees. Our results indicate that self- enhancing humor played a key role in leadership at workplace. This helps us to acquire evidence for the self-enhancing humor enhanced job related positive affective well-being of employees. On the other hand, aggressive humor showed a positive but small effect on job related negative affective well-being of employees.
