Spotlight on Conversation
Sooner or later most of us, in daily interactions with a colleague, an employee, a boss, or even a client, become annoyed. People do annoying things after all!
Our “Spotlight on Conversation” helps you and your employees do three things:
- Understand that workgroups form a kind of family and that many of our professional interactions reflect this dynamic.
- Gauge their own feelings. In order to do a better job at relating to the various members of our workplace family, we must learn to become aware of how we feel in a given setting, or at any particular moment.
- Temper your reaction. A deep breath and a moment of reflection make it easier to respond calmly and effectively to a coworker’s behavior.
Parents Forum’s emotional awareness training can make your workplace more collegial and productive, have positive effects in employees’ personal lives and, as a bonus, may have even deeper positive effects in the family lives of employees who are parents.
Contact us for information on scheduling a 45-minute lunch-and-learn in person or by webinar – or – a longer session or a series covering our full “Spotlight” curriculum.
Giving tangible form to our twenty-five years of effort, Where the Heart Listens chronicles the program’s development and guides readers through thoughtful examination of eight original questions about family life issues.
