Characters We All Work With – Full House

The workplace can sometimes be as heartwarming as a Thomas Kincaide painting, where office dynamics can feel like a cheerful family sitcom and the stresses of work are like playtime with the clock. And we can’t help but notice how some of the people seem an awful lot like the characters of the long-running TV show ‘Full House.’ Gather ’round the office fireplace and think about how well some of this cast lines up with some of the work-casts we all have worked with throughout our careers.

The “Uncle Jesse” Office Smooth Operator:

The Uncle Jesse is the one with the charming charisma and cool confidence every step of the way. He is like that rockstar uncle, with a way of winning over clients and coworkers with a magnetic personality. The Uncle Jesse has stylish appearance and a laid-back attitude, that makes them a popular figure in the workplace. But the Jesse is not only about style, he is a genuine person, able to empathize and share his warmth and feelings, which is just one more reason to want this smooth operator on your team and bring that cool, charismatic personality he exudes.

The “Aunt Becky” Office Sweetheart:
We always feel lucky when we work anywhere that includes an Aunt Becky – the office sweetheart with a kind heart and caring nature. Like the warm-hearted aunt from ‘Full House’, they’re always there to lend a helping hand and offer support to coworkers. The Becky’s comforting presence and thoughtful gestures make them a cherished member of the workplace family. They may push to have a few more Pot-Luck Dinner Days and Bake-Sales, and other team-building activities than the rest. But you indulge these as much as you can, knowing it’s important to reciprocate for what the Becky gives to the team.

The “Michelle Tanner” Office Go-Getter:
We have all worked with that ‘True Go-Getter’ with an unwavering ‘Can Do attitude Welcome in our Michelle Tanner. The Michelle is not only proficient and goal-oriented, but also has a fun side with a knack for mischief. While focused on her job and supporting every business initiative, she can be spunky, eager to take on new challenges, and always up for exploring new opportunities and uncharted territories for the business. Thus, working alongside the Michelle is always welcomed. The Michelle’s enthusiasm is infectious, and her curiosity shows a consistent desire to learn, and thanks to that child-like fun side, she helps create some hilarious situations that make your job a little less like ‘Work’. And you love getting the patented response from the Michelle any time you ask for her help, you can expect the same answer…‘You got it, dude!’.

The “Joey Gladstone” Office Comedian:
We love having an office comedian in our midst. Some people just have that natural, unforced ability to lighten the mood when the pressure meter ticks up, and bring a quick wit, and endless supply of one-liners that always seem to fit the situation. In our workplace, we call him the ‘Joey’. While such a role can be thankless, and those that take it to too high an extreme can turn from ‘fun’ to insufferable, the Joey is able to strike the perfect balance of picking his spots based on the situation. Because the Joey is very good at what he does, and brings a great analytical mind for business, he brings incredibly high value to the team. The Joey is the person you can call on to think through a business challenge, as well as the right person to connect with when you need to blow off steam. He does not take himself or even the work too seriously, and will help you to keep your priorities in order, focused on family and relationships first, and business second, which is something you know already but the Joey will help you to remember that, and always lift you up to persevere through any professional or personal challenge.

The “Danny Tanner” Office Clean Freak:
Nothing can put a damper on an otherwise normal, even good, day in the workplace than coming into the break or lunch room, and seeing a mess. Coffee spilled on the counter, covered with torn Splenda packets, stirrers, and milk, or butter stuck in the microwave from the last popcorn run. That’s one reason we love having the Danny in the office. While most will simply stew about such instances, or run to someone in charge to complain about it, or perhaps call the cleaning staff to address it, the Danny will not. The Danny has the right attitude which is always to take the five minutes it will take to wipe the counter, wash the microwave plate, spray some Lysol, whatever it takes. He never gets hung up on the small stuff, and won’t let you either. The Danny has an uncanny knack for helping everyone to keep things in perspective, truly assess what a complaint is really about and whether it is ever worth allowing it to ruin your day – which it never is. Thus, the Danny wears many hats in our workplace, from a leader, to a clean freak, to what some refer to as ‘the office Dad’. He is the voice of reason at all times, the shoulder to cry on when you need it, and the sounding board who will listen, not judge, when you need to simply vent. His role is multi-faceted, bringing both the business acumen and skill to do a great job, but his greatest value is what he brings to the team that keeps everyone calm, focused, and feeling great every time they interact with the Danny.

Breaking down a heartwarming comedy like Full House, it is evident that our coworkers are a blend of clean freaks, smooth operators, sweethearts, and jokesters. From office fun to support and care for one another, our daily grind can easily feel like a family sitcom. Such dynamics are not a part of every stop we make in our career, but when they are, and you find yourself about to enjoy a ‘group hug’ moment (whether HR likes it or not, we need them sometimes!), it is striking just how similar the crew from Full House are to the Characters We Work With.
