We all want to love what we do when we go to work and feel a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment and yes – have fun. However, it’s not just about the work that you do. It’s about being connected to the people you work with and enjoying their company. The truth is that most people do not feel connected with others in their workplace and that’s not fun.
In business, fun and making more money go hand in hand, not because it’s fun to make money – it’s because if you’re having fun at work, you WILL make more money. Imagine your business with happy employees and a bigger bottom line. It’s a simple concept, and it works.
A Company Culture that Fosters Connection
A company’s culture is a key to success, arguably more so than any other factor. A positive company culture empowers employees, creates enthusiasm and passion, and increases productivity. Team members look forward to coming to work every day and feel valued and invested in the company. The work environment becomes more than just a job – it’s a place where everyone wants to be because they feel connected and have fun together.
What makes a fun company culture? Fun occurs when people are on the same page and have shared goals – and they like each other. The team has a symbiosis, and they enjoy being together and working together. That kind of relationship cultivates collaboration, which results in effective problem solving and innovation. The environment is productive and forward thinking and focused. All of these things result in what? More money!
In this kind of culture, people communicate openly, but they also laugh often because they LIKE each other. It’s a team of people who are working to achieve the same end and having fun while doing so.
It Sounds Great, But How Do I Create a Fun Culture in My Business?
Creating a positive and fun company culture starts at the top. You, as the business owner, are the driver and lead by example. It’s very simple. If YOU are having fun, your team will follow. If you are smiling and positive, your team will smile and be positive with you – and feel that sense of connection that is necessary to love what they do.
The other key driver of a fun culture that you control is making your team feel appreciated and valued. Think about how you feel when someone appreciates what you do – it creates a feeling of satisfaction and well-being and happiness, and being happy is fun! It sounds simple because it is simple. Have fun, be positive, and make your employees feel connected and valued. The money will naturally follow.
