1.Ways Humor Can Help In The Workplace
A. Stress Relief
1. It can help with the issues you bring to work that shouldn't be involved.
a. Such as your girlfriend called you fat so now you are self conscious and cant get it off of your mind.
2. The relief of stress will make you capable of working harder and seeing more results in your work.
a. The more relaxed and stress free you are the better you will work
B. Bringing co-workers together
1. Humor often "breaks the ice" when it comes to first meeting someone or having tension with another.
a. An awkward handshake occurs and you follow it up with a joke that makes you both laugh and get comfortable
2. Humor can make relationships stronger so co-workers would work together more as a team rather than separate individuals.
