1. How to Get Voted Off Your Island

If you want to create a truly inspiring, fun workplace, then
it helps to identify some behaviors that may be contributing to
a less-than-oh-so-happy workplace. A poll conducted by 72 Point
found that these were the most annoying office personalities:
29% voted for the Brown Noser, 18% for “The No. 1” (the person
who always has done something better than you), 15% for the
Corporate Speaker (“Mr./Ms. Buzzword”), 13.5% for the Blagger
(a serial sick-day taker), 8% for the Clock Watcher, 6% for
the Social Secretary, 3% for the Office Letch (only 3%??).

And if you combine any three or more of the above-mentioned
traits, you pretty much get voted off the island.

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

October 27th is “Cranky Co-Worker” Day, a day designed to, um,
I don’t actually know. But here’s a thought, why not combine
“Cranky Co-Worker Day” with a Halloween related theme, and do
what a bank in the U.S. does once a year: have a “dress your
co-worker day.” That’s right, you get to dress a randomly
drawn co-worker however you wish (within some agreed upon
limits) for the day.

3. Quote of the Week

“Comedy is a way of thinking about the world. When you stop
laughing, comedy really does make you think.” Ejner Jensen

4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

According to a survey, 88% of women said there is at least one
quality they see in their dog that they’d also like to see in
their men. And 34% said that if their dog were actually were a
man, then he would be their boyfriend! This also ties nicely
into a survey that suggested that 50% of employees would rather
work for their dog than for their boss. (I’m not even sure what
that means.)

Happy Hump Day everyone. Keep laughing.
