Innovation and creativity tend to thrive when there is freedom in the workplace. However, most offices are too serious to allow for free-thinking making people behave like robots.
A little humour helps to breakdown barriers and that is why during a job interview, a little humour will ease the pressure in the room and wins you some favour.
According to the founder of Virgin Atlantic, Richard Branson humour makes leaders approachable.
It creates a positive and playful environment making people more creative.
“Joy and humour speed up the process of trust and respect. They create a safe space to grow a relationship,” says Branson.
It also kills tension in the office.
