Twenty public servants from eleven different organizations gathered in Olympia, Washington, on December 8th for the first ever meeting of people inspired by the Make Work More Human message! After a quick rundown of the core ideas of Love Not Fear, the group did a warm up that got them connecting and sharing stories of love at work. Then they used the "Lean Coffee" methodology created by Modus Cooperandi to explore and find answers to a key question: "What barriers need to be overcome to create a loving, safe workplace?" They finished with discussing the future. What would they like to learn, read, watch, explore, visit, or hear to advance their thinking, skill, and practice of love and safety in the workplace? The ideas for learning how to bring more humanity to work were abundant! Next gathering will be in January 2018 -- exact dates to follow soon!
