When I saw Richard Branson hanging in his hammock on Necker Island, his home in the British Virgin Islands , I thought again about how much fun he always seems to be having.W e’re working hard …. but are we having any fun?
Who’s Having Fun?
If I asked you for the name of 3 executives you believe are having the most fun, who would you name?
Herb Kelleher, the long-time Founder and CEO of Southwest Airlines (now retired), comes to mind, regaling his colleagues in a chicken suit and singing to passengers during boarding.
Google seems like a fun place to work with all of the gadgetry, and gourmet meals at all hours. Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Google’s co-founders even converted a Boeing 767 into their personal luxury liner, and their stock’s done pretty well, but I’m not sure we think of them as “fun”?
