fun at work

When last did you have fun at work?

Five ways to motivate yourself when work is no longer enjoyable.

Do you dread going to work? Do you hate Monday mornings? Does the very thought of work make you feel irritated?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'Yes', you need to get the fun back into your working life. Hating your job adversely affects your health, productivity, stress levels and your ability to achieve. It also affects your relationships. And since work consumes up to half your waking hours, it makes sense to develop a plan that will enable you to enjoy your time at work.

Read our practical article on where the fun goes, and what you can do to enjoy your work.

Have some fun with our jargon generators.

When what people say seems more important than what they do.

Have you ever sat in meetings and wondered how some people seem to be able to come up with an endless supply of mindless jargon and still sound important. Now you can do it too.

People who are experts at mindless jargon simply mix and match a number of nouns, adjectives with as few verbs or action words as possible. This allows them to sound impressive without actually doing anything. Play them at their own game. Use our jargon generators to string together your own words into mindless conversations or respond to others meaningless points.

Choose between our strategic planning, leadership or change management conversations. And take a few minutes to smile at the absurdity of it all.
