    Abstract

    Humor is a common dimension of human interaction. Therefore, it has an effect on working groups and organizations. The influence of humor on interpersonal relationship and behavior has been considered by various enterprises. 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. The study aims to shed light on humor which can be considered as a precursor of job related affective well-being of employees.
