Today I delivered the keynote address “The Power of Our Words” at the Stockton Women’s Network, a warm, wonderful group of entrepreneurial women in this city south of Sacramento, CA. (I usually tithe a speech a quarter to non-profit organizations like this.) They were a great audience — attentive and participatory — my favorite!
We talked about how our words impact others, and often we say things without thinking that have long-reaching affects. I find this program is popular at managers’ meetings, as managers often say things off the cuff, having no idea how devastating their remarks can be to their staff.
After the presentation, some of the SWN members shared that they were glad to be reminded that the should mind their words more carefully with their staff, peers and family.
