Is it necessary to keep speaking and make noise all the time? Why do silences and pauses make us feel awkward? When you find yourself in a conversation, whether live or online, it isn’t necessary to always have the last say in everything. Sometimes the best response is no response at all.
I was invited to be one of the speakers for the corporate workshop for Chemical Engineering student delegates. Thanks UP Alchemes for the invite! It was great spending an early sunny morning imparting knowledge and stories to these future chemical engineers.
I gave a short talk on appearance, poise and behavior for the ushering and welcome ministry of Focus on Christ International Ministries.
Sometimes, the atmosphere in a social gathering can be ruined just because of conversation topics that are considered taboo, off-limits or too intrusive. Asking about a person’s salary, talking about someone’s sex life, poking fun at religion or bullying people because of it… it may seem like others have accepted this as a norm, but it’s good to be reminded about manners, respect & courtesy.
