Brain Boost: E%$#*^ (Emotions) at Work

Speaker: Colleen Wile-
Evidence shows that the emotional culture of an organization influences employee satisfaction, burnout, absenteeism, teamwork, and team performance, however, “emotions” can often seem like a dirty word at work. Join us to play a simple game to help break that taboo!




A FREE lunchtime collaborative learning experience designed to build expertise and ensure equitable access to a wealth of knowledge. Bring your lunch and learn.
April 26 – Noon to 1:00 PM
(doors will open at 11:30 so you can grab a snack and a drink and get settled in)
122 E Patrick St, Frederick, MD 21701 (Cowork Frederick “Community Room”)

Colleen Wile is the Senior Director of Operations for the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data. In this role, Colleen is responsible for various aspects of talent management and team culture. She was introduced to the Emotional Culture Deck by a colleague. Initially skeptical, she is now a certified practitioner of the game.

Brain Boost is a monthly brown bag event designed to build expertise, catapult the success of small businesses, and ensure equitable access to a wealth of knowledge. People from a variety of professions and walks of life share their experience and expertise in an educational talk. Then, with the help of a facilitator, participants engage in active conversation. The event aims to spark inclusive conversation and circulate the abundant knowledge of Frederick’s small biz community. Participants bring their own lunch (optionally). Drinks and light snacks are provided. The Cowork Frederick Foundation (a 501(c)(3) non-profit) covers the cost of running the program and the meeting space, with the help of sponsors. Speakers volunteer their time.

Founded in 2019, the Cowork Frederick Foundation is the community-supported, non-profit arm of Cowork Frederick. We help Frederick County freelancers, remote workers, and solopreneurs be more successful by creating ways for them to connect, learn, and build better businesses – and lives – together. In so doing, we support a vital part of a healthy, growing, fluid, free-market economy. Help support our efforts here.
