Surrounds matter

Have you ever sat in a windowless, stuffy, dimly lit meeting room?

How about a fluorescent, bright, overly artificial waiting room?

Or what about one of those corporate training rooms setup like a Primary School classroom?

What was your energy like in these surrounds?

Did you feel energised? Creative? Productive? Motivated? Inspired? Fulfilled?

Or did you feel some version of this?

I’m guessing the latter.

Surrounds matter.

They impact our mood, energy and desire to connect with others.

So the next time you choose to do work, host a meeting, run a workshop or even catch up with a colleague or friend, consider:

How might I make this a place where people feel energised instead of drained?

Just another meeting room the same as all the other meeting rooms
