NCAVT Conference 2022 Keynote Speaker

The Double-Edged Sword of Workplace Communication 

Description: Regardless of our educational background, training, or title, we are all role models and communicators. Every day we have the opportunity to demonstrate healthy patterns of behavior and create positive ripple effects in the workplace. Effective communication is a cornerstone of healthy workplaces, and yet it is often an afterthought. Because communication is the process by which people create, transmit, and interpret messages, it is called a double-edged sword i.e. how we communicate represents both a stimulus to psychological distress and a solution for psychological distress in the workplace. This interactive workshop establishes communication as an essential skill to be used intentionally as a source of help, not harm. Topics covered include: the link between effective communication and workplace wellbeing, stages of readiness for behavioral change, and the use of core skills to build trust, and increase rapport to create work cultures that allow individuals and teams to flourish and achieve their full potential for the benefit of themselves and their organization.
