You’re probably less likely to snap at someone when you’re in a good mood, right?
Having fun as a team can create a productive and healthy environment which, in turn, can help everyone communicate better, find creative solutions to their biggest issues, and feel overall less stressed at work (which, alone, can lead to less conflict!)
Humor is great when used appropriately. Not only does laughing ease tension, but it communicates that it’s okay to have a little bit of fun at work, make mistakes, and be yourself – even in high-stress situations.
Taking regular time out to get to know each other better, including your values, beliefs, viewpoints, strengths, and needs, can also help create a healthy team dynamic.
How do you cultivate a sense of ease and interpersonal safety in your team?
