I thought I’d share this clever Coldplay music video with you today – we all need a bit of fun at work sometimes. Click here to watch – enjoy!

If teams in your organisation are often heard laughing, be pleased. It’s a strong indicator of high performance.

Why?

Because first, it means that there is a low level of fear. Fearful people not only don’t laugh, but they don’t collaborate well either, with less sharing, co-creation, passing on of information or willingness to back each other up. Second, a study found that individuals having fun at work were more likely to be engaged in their work. Engagement and high performance are strongly linked.
