What Southwest Airlines, SAS, and Maria Montessori have all known: You can’t achieve great performance if you’re not having fun!

¿

As Maria Montessori understood, work is fun and should be fun; play is fun and should be fun. They are just different kinds of fun. When work is done without joy, there is less creativity, less engagement, and far less productivity. So, your goal as a manager is to lead people to a place where learning and work are joyful experiences.
