Giving a child an injection is important – but not likely to make anyone very happy. Unless you do it the way this pediatrician does.
Here’s the best part: We showed this video at our most recent Woohoo inc Academy and it turned out that one of the participants had been a patient of this doctor. He’s retired now, but she told the group how awesome it was to be his patient, how he was always friendly and happy and how she basically had to be kicked out once she grew up and had to start seeing a “big-girl-doctor”.
A loooong while back we shared the idea of playing a game in the office, where you challenge coworkers to come up with ideas that combine two existing themes. You may even offer a small prize for the funniest or most creatives replies.
Here are two examples contributed by Destiney from Colorado Mountain College Steamboat Springs:
Destiney is also looking for more ideas for themes.
Here are two I came up with:
Baked goods + TV show: Game of scones. Breading bad.
Celebrity + Car: Harrison Ford :) Too easy?
There must be a million more. What combination would you suggest? Write a comment!
This may be the happiest classical music piece ever composed. And loudly popping champagne corks is part of it :)
I’m currently in Chile to do 2 speeches for Transbank, a credit card transaction company that is already #1 on Chile’s Great Place to Work ranking.
After my first speech, Christian Castro of Transbank sent me this video to show me a woman here in Chile, who is clearly very happy at work :)
I’m speaking at Transbank’s annual employee retreat. This year, to really recognize the importance of emotions at work, they’ve themed the event after Pixar’s awesome Inside Out movie.
I quickly grabbed the chance to dress up as my favorite character from Inside Out:
Any job worth doing is worth doing in style :)
Have a happy weekend!
A few years ago this German DJ became famous on youtube and he used that as a springboard to quit the day job he hated and become a full-time DJ.
In this video from our 2015 conference about happiness at work he plays a very short set and then shares his story.
Meet a man who had the courage to go his own way and became world famous for being happy at work.
Meet Jack. He likes to give himself challenges at work – and provides his own background music.
How incredibly awesome :)
Tons of people all around the world follow the continuing adventures of the 4th floor stapler from Innocent’s London HQ:
As these things often do, it started with a minor act of rebellion. A person pushed by circumstance into an act they never thought they’d be capable of. One morning, driven over the edge by one label too many, they grabbed the fourth floor stapler and took it to the second floor. The world would never be the same again.
And then things escalated and the stapler has nown been to The Ritz, to Finland, to New York and to Disneyland – just to mention a few of its travels.
That’s just hilarious. Here’s the whole story of the 4th floor stapler… so far.
Ever seen something similar where you work?
