Please Don’t Make me Wear a Funny Hat at Work in the Name of Having “Fun”!

I’m all for creating and maintaining a work environment where people can feel like winners, have a high degree of autonomy, and enjoy the people they work with. Coming to work should not feel like going to the dentist to get a root canal. Work should be challenging, engaging, energizing, and maybe even enjoyable (at least more often than not).

But should work be “fun”?

It depends. Read my latest article over at Management and Leadership to get my take on fun at work.
