A Human Workplace: Olympia to meet August 10th on Human-Centered Design

Join us on August 10, 2018, from 10 a.m. - 12 noon at 1500 Jefferson St SE in Olympia, WA, for a hands-on, interactive workshop on improving experiences through design thinking.

Register today for  Human-Centered Design: Improving Experiences.

Building on the May gathering when we learned about and practiced empathy, now take that empathetic awareness and apply it to a design challenge. You’ll work through each phase of the design thinking process from empathy to testing a prototype. This process is fun, fast, and engaging. And these skills and practices can be readily applied to designing both customer and team member experiences.

We welcome back Jessica Dang from Results Washington to facilitate and guide us through this human-centered design workshop.

Feel free to share this invitation with others, and do register to RSVP so we can prepare materials.

Love is Topic for Next Human Workplace Meet Up

“Does love really belong at work?” he wondered.

“Well, do people belong at work?” she asked in reply.

“Yes, of course,” he said.

“So then, yes, of course, love belongs at work,” she assured him. “Not romantic love, but all the other kinds of love that are also part of being human. Those belong at work. If people are going to be at work, then love must be at work. Otherwise, work won’t work. People won’t work, at least not well.”

At the next Human Workplace Meet Up in Olympia, WA, we will explore the concept of love at work. Join other public servants and friends of government to explore the many types of love that are part of being human and essential for success at work.

Through stories, reflection, and dialogue, together we will better understand loving experiences that support our best contributions, surprising innovations, and effective collaborations. We aren't talking about romantic love, but love expressed in empathy, care, respect, trust, altruism, inclusion, kindness, and friendship.

Feel free to share this invitation with others, and do register to RSVP so we can prepare to welcome you!
