Best Boss 

Cole Lindbergh
Worlds of Fun Games Manager

It's an understatement to say Cole Lindbergh loves his job. He's the games manager at Worlds of Fun, meaning you're on his turf when you set out to win a giant stuffed animal. The 25-year-old has a little bit of Michael Scott, The Office's strange but kindhearted boss, in him — down to having produced his own Threat Level Midnight-like film, made with his summer help (title: Final Games Video). There are several more videos of Lindbergh and his staff clowning around on his YouTube channel (woffilms), including Lindbergh rapping to M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes." Earlier this year, he was featured on Ira Glass' radio show, This American Life. After 11 years on the job, Lindbergh still exudes contagious affection for his work. Glass observed on the air that it rubbed off on Lindbergh's staff. We should all be lucky enough to work for someone like Lindbergh.
