Shhhhh…. Silence At Work
Come and start your day quietly, listening for the meaning behind the message. Silence is scarce in our culture, unless you purposefully seek it. While we value sharing thoughts and feelings, an important nuance in coaching and training is how and when to let there be silence. In order to listen deeply, be quiet. Let’s pause and reflect on what we heard. For many, silence can produce uncomfortable emotions, so we fill the void with words, perhaps missing a deeper realization. DESIDERATA (“Things desired), “Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace may be in SILENCE”. In this meeting we will face the silence together.
