Why so serious at work? Laughter can actually be beneficial for your workplace, according to a recent article from Fast Company.
A funny moment can be a great team builder, and laughter can make us more productive and creative, meaning a brainstorming session can be more helpful. People can also be better at problem solving if they are in a better mood.
But don’t force it. You aren’t obligated to try to be funny, or to find others funny. Humor shouldn’t be a liability. Be aware of types of appropriate humor and when it is appropriate to share a joke.
