Nearly every conference room scene in The Office portrays a relatively relaxed environment where free thought and participation are encouraged. While the topics discussed aren’t usually work-related, I thought it would be interesting to analyze the meetings from an organizational psychology perspective.

Some of the most moving moments for me actually are those centered around wacky characters with whom you wouldn’t normally empathize.

I really appreciate how the writers of The Office showed that a dream deferred, or even many dreams deferred, does not mean you can't live a meaningful life.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but I like to reframe reality more than I like to escape from it. The Office takes a mundane setting – an office – and finds the beauty and humor in it.
You can’t believe you let your coworker, Creed Bratton, talk you into paying hooky from work and going scuba diving in Lake Wallenpaupack.
Shortly before I graduated from college, I stopped watching the weekly Office episodes released on Netflix. It was Season 8, and the show was heavily focused on Erin and Andy.
Erin and Andy are walking through the dump searching for the sales leads Michael lost when Andy comments that it’s chilly. Without hesitation, Erin gives him her jacket.
