Wired for Wonder: Harnessing the Brain Science of Awe to Optimize Resilience & Maximize Performance
Join CCWLA for a June luncheon with guest speaker, Dee O’Neill who will speak on Wired for Wonder: Harnessing the Brain Science of Awe to Optimize Resilience & Maximize Performance.
What is your brain wired for? Where does your mind go when left to its own devices? Stress, worry, and status quo? Or happiness, joy, even awe? Using what we know and applying it to life and work allows the communities of people we serve to benefit from this growing body of scientific knowledge.
Awe and wonder have seemed to be a mystery historically, aligned more with highly unusual or rare experiences. Recent findings highlight that awe is a fundamental human emotion. We are learning that not only do humans naturally experience awe but that we are-in all likelihood-wired to do so. This means we can improve upon and increase the awe in our lives and in the lives of our communities. The positive effects are vast for personal lives and for advancing the causes and strategic objectives of organizations.
