Whether you are the boss or a team member, show off your sweet side. Every job has its dull moments that no one enjoys. This isn’t something to suffer through, it’s an opportunity to lift spirits. Break out in song, do a funny dance, crack a joke, or do something out of character. Do something fun to take your mind off the drudgery. Soon enough the dull moments will be the most exciting.
The moments of laughter are what everyone remembers best. The good times of enjoyment and smiles from ear to ear. Even your atmosphere will begin to change.
You don’t have to be a clown! I know plenty of introverted people who would much rather keep to themselves. So would I, but in those moments, it’s not about you and how comfortable you are looking like a fool. It’s about a smile. You become a day-changer for someone else. The person everyone can’t wait to see when you walk in the door.
Give a smile and get a smile. Same thing goes for the latter. If you walk in with a frown, you’ll see one return from who can see you. Spread the joy and happiness even if you have to fake for a bit.
Those of you who remember the show the Office and sitting there wondering how Michael Scott (Steve Carell) was a good boss. The show brings that fact up multiple times in the series and how dumbfounded they are that his branch does so well. He was a manager that brought joy and laughter to a job as dull as selling paper. Even if most of the time they were laughing at him. It may be a fictional show, but there’s something to be said about that subliminal message.
