Ask Inspiring Questions to Create Inspiring Workplaces

Before they implement a new idea or change in policy, Atlanta

Refrigeration Service asks the following questions:

– Is it right for our customers?

– Is it right for our employees?

– Is it right for our community?

– Is it right for the environment?

– Is it what we want to be known and remembered for?

– Does it reflect our values?

– Is it the right thing to do?

What a great idea, for so many reasons! And what a good segue to

let you know about a new Humor at Work e-book for you: “Inspiring

Questions for Inspiring Workplaces,” 365 inspiring workplace

questions in nine different categories. Purchase and download it

Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Set aside time every meeting for a thought-provoking or fun

question of the meeting, drawn from a hat or jar (or e-book) full

of interesting questions. You don’t need a lot of time, you can

always do a speed round of 5 or 10 minutes with everyone giving

their top of mind responses. Or if you have time, delve deeper

and see what ideas people can come up with. This is a great way

to generate discussion, spark creative thinking and curiosity,

break down barriers, engage people and get everyone to consider

different aspects and issues around workplace success and culture.

It’s a Wacky World

Here are a few tourist questions I collected in a humor file,

and featured in my book “When Do You let the Animals Out?”:

– Do the hotels allow you to stay overnight?

– Am I lost? How far do I have to go before I’m lost?

– How much time does the 3-hour hike take?

– How many undiscovered lakes do you have around here?
