The Power of Work-Place Rituals: Thriving and Changing Together

By Edith "Edie" Raphael, PhD |   Jan 27, 2016

Every time our rational mind wants or needs to do things differently, the Lizard Brain protests…loudly. Individually, we can find ways to quiet our own Lizard Brain (and you can find many of those as you read our articles here on The Wireboard). But I would also like to offer a solution that teams and businesses can implement collectively to buffer the stress of big changes on the work front: the workplace ritual.
