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.
This session will be livestreamed.

"I come to ACVIM Forum so that I can see what was happening as far as the cutting-edge research, to be able to interact with people who are specialists in things, and to be able to just get that additional insight that you can't really get anywhere else."
"Every year I find multiple pages of things I can use to be a better veterinarian and provide better care. The increased information and care that I can provide always pays for the cost of the conference many times over."
