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?
This is just AWESOME :)
I would argue that most jobs, no matter how serious they may be on the surface, offer the chance to show your playful side.
And if they don’t, there are other jobs that do!
We visited Zappos in Las Vegas last week and saw this epic prank video :)
Ever done something like that in your workplace?

Saw this safety poster at LEGO HQ when I did a speech there recently :)
The text reads:
We all know we would be much safer like this!
Just not quite as efficient. Please be aware of any work place dangers you see – it will prevent us from squeeing you into a suit like this! Awareness does make a difference.
Have you done a good job? Step into the self-praise machine:
If no one else gives you recognition at work, you’ll just have to do it yourself!
Love this. Maybe we should introduce a similar pricing model for our speeches and workshops :)
