Getting Under The Skin of Other Shows in the Building [WATCH]
There's a new fad going on here in the building with some of our morning shows -- notes on the studio door to not interrupt the show. That's just asking for somebody like me to stir the pot!
It's very true that there can be many distractions with people entering the studios, so it helps to hang a reminder on the door to not disturb them. Me, on the other hand, love having studio company, and combined with the desire to instigate trouble with my co-workers, I couldn't resist temptation.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a team player and one of the easiest going people in the business. If you've heard our "More Music Morning Show" than you know it's all about fun, giving away free things, and tons of music each hour. I take the radio business very serious, but sometimes intentionally being the "grey duck" gives me extreme pleasure.
I believe having a good time at work is extremely important. I'll prove it by showing you an article that was published from Entrepreneur magazine. One of the things they say is:
A U.K. study of 700 participants by the Social Market Foundation and the University of Warwick’s Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy showed that productivity increased by an average of 12 percent and as high as 20 percent after viewing a comedy clip and enjoying snacks and drinks. Dr. Daniel Sgroi, the report’s author suggests showing a short film or some crazy commercials. Incorporate humorous videos into your PowerPoint presentations. Everyone will leave with a smile on their faces.
Don't get me wrong, the people I work with every day are some of the most fun people you could ever ask for. There's got to be a town jester in every company, and I try as hard as I can to hold onto that title :)
