It has been said that everything we see and experience is the result of a conversation, be it an internal one we are having with ourselves, or one we are engaging in with others.Conversations have the power to motivate, elevate, expand, inspire, energize, and stimulate the imagination with new, previously unseen possibility. They also have the power to hurt, constrict, limit potential and shut down possibility.Which are you perpetuating, for yourself and others?

The Coach’s Tip – It all begins with the Word.

  • Notice your language, the positions you take and the things you talk about. Are they contributing to an upward spiral, or a downward one?
  • Which internal conversations would benefit from a make-over?
  • Who around you is engaged in a downward conversation? What shifts do you see as possible for them – and how might you support those shifts?

Engagient provided a safe environment for managers to openly share comments, issues and concerns related to the workplace culture and practices. Facilitation and careful probing by Engagient staff provided our managers with the view and challenges facing senior leadership and how managers may be helpful in the process, identifying opportunities to enhance their leadership skills.

The engagement exceeded all expectations.
