Bringing Joy to the Workplace

Why is joy in the workplace important? When we are joyful, we are more resilient, more creative and more productive. Agile coach Ann-Marie Kong helped me clarify that my purpose is to bring joy to the workplace.

How do I do that? By bringing games to our weekly virtual 'coffee chats'. By advocating for persistent, intact teams that learn and grow together; and create strong bonds by doing so. By varying my agile retrospective techniques, so they are never (I hope) boring. By being a sounding board for a colleague who is frustrated or stuck on a problem that seems insurmountable.

How do we create this feeling: "You've got this!" As we come into the holiday season, I encourage you to look for joy! It's there..

Or create it yourself!
