6 Myths of Using Humor in the Workplace


I recently came across a great article on FastCompany that shares 6 myths of using humor in the workplace.  It goes on to dispel each myth and share anecdotes from people that highlight how to properly use humor at work.

The 6 myths are:

  1. Professionalism and fun are incompatible.
  2. It takes toys and money to have fun.
  3. Fun means laughter.
  4. You have to plan for fun.
  5. Fun time at work will compromise results.
  6. You have to be funny to create a fun work environment.

For details on why each is a myth, check out the full article.
