Comedy in the Workplace?
Dealing in high stress environments, I've learned how important it is to keep a sense of humor. Some situations are serious and warrant critical thinking, but we all need a break from that sometimes. Lightening the mood can help people think more clearly and more relaxed. The result is that people feel more comfortable to provide input to be a part of the solution. I've been in some meetings where I thought a person's face might crack if I saw a smile. I look at it this way, you can be serious all the time at work or you can take the time to enjoy what you're doing and still be serious about it.
