It's summer and a perfect time to gather outside on the East Plaza Lawn of Washington State's Capitol Campus in Olympia (rain or shine!) for July's Human Workplace to explore the science of awe and its benefits.
Join us Friday, July 13 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on the Washington State Capitol Campus in Olympia on the East Plaza Lawn (over the Plaza Garage.)
We humans experience awe when we encounter nature, art, vistas, large structures, and more. And fortunately, the state capitol has all these! Studies show that experiencing awe can promote altruism, well-being, calm, collaboration, and kindness. When we have a sense of something greater than ourselves, we are more cooperative, positive and helpful towards others.
At this meeting we will experience inspiration in our surroundings and ponder how that can foster thoughtful, generous, and compassionate actions toward others as well as support personal well-being. Experience awe in a walk-about on the beautiful campus with a colleague, reflect on this experience with other participants, and consider how these insights can be practically applied to situations of conflict, pressure, exclusion, and disconnection at work to create a more effective and human workplace.
Space is unlimited this time! So feel free to bring your colleagues but please pre-register here so we create enough materials.

It'll be an AWEsome experience. ;)
