Staff Forum: Mindful Communication in the Workplace
Start Date: 5/2/2017Start Time: 11:30 AM
End Date: 5/2/2017End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
Words we use are double-edged swords. They can inspire and bring hope to someone, or they can hurt and diminish someone’s spirit. Have you ever received a voice mail or e-mail that sounds as if the sender is angry at you or cold to you? Perhaps we may also be doing the same to others inadvertently.

This forum is about learning to be more mindful and empathetic about our word choices, the tone of our messages, and subtle meanings we may be conveying. Spending just a little time before making a statement, both in oral and written, can bring about a very different outcome. The presenter will share practical suggestions to practice mindfulness and empathy in our communication in the workplace.

After attending this forum participants will be able to:
1. Avoid certain words and phrases that may be interpreted in a negative way.
2. Appreciate others and practice empathy in our choices of words.
3. Know when to speak and when not to speak.

Lunch will be provided for registered participants; to reserve your seat contact
