Environment is an important part of feeling comfortable and creating the right mood or energy. Some spaces just feel better. Think about how relaxing you feel when you are on a nice vacation. Maybe your happy place is at the beach or the mountains.
On the opposite end, you might have experienced being somewhere uncomfortable. You stop at a gas station on a road trip, and things just don’t feel right. Maybe you even feel threatened or in danger.
Change It Up
Sometimes changing your environment will change the way you think and your team dynamics. Try different spaces, take a walk together. Take note of how the mood of the team differs in these different environments.
