Are you having fun at work?

It’s International Fun at Work Day (January 26)

One way of having more “fun” at work is to make it a goal to talk to strangers — YES, STRANGERS!! Talk to people in your workplace who you don’t know well. Make it a point to smile and introduce yourself. Make “small talk” by asking about their role in the company, how they are enjoying their work, etc.

You’d be surprised at how much others appreciate and enjoy this interaction!

 

You  will make THEM feel appreciated . The bonus for you is that you will feel more comfortable talking to people you don’t know, which will translate into making you feel more comfortable giving presentations and going to networking events.
