The Pursuit of Happiness

Chuck Pratt, MS; University of Washington Consulting Alliance

While we may have differing notions about what makes us happy and how to be happier, we all probably have one thing in common: we want more of it. As it turns out, happiness isn’t a trivial pursuit; studies show a meaningful relationship between happiness, emotional intelligence, and overall mental health. In this session, challenge your preconceived notions of happiness, assess your level of happiness, and learn strategies for enhancing your happiness.

The Power of the Beat

Linda Callecod; Senior Consultant, Professional & Organizational Development

Experience truly being part of something greater than yourself. This facilitated drum circle provides a kinesthetic experience that puts abstract concepts like teamwork, cooperation, and leadership at your fingertips. Participating in a drum circle doesn’t require any musical ability or experience; anyone can join in and receive immediate recognition of your contributions. Through both structured and improvisational exercises, practice bringing your best self to the table, feel the power of a synergized team, and experience how leadership can emerge from any level. This dynamic session promises a fun-filled 90 minutes of sound, motion, and discovery.
