The Centre for Spirituality at Work






Thursday March 30, 2006, 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
The ABC, near Bloor & Yonge, Toronto

At work, each of us is a human being first and a worker second. Today, just a job is often not enough because people are looking for -- and in some cases, expecting -- authenticity and meaning. Whether we are speaking with one person, working with a team in trouble, or facilitating a large group, there are always times when the need to speak the truth can be difficult, especially in the moment. How do we balance ‘workplace savvy’ with honesty? How do we take risks, in the moment, to say what needs saying? With the right intention and focus, disparate groups can indeed come together for a common cause. This evening we will explore communication difficulties, positive risk-taking and the need for truth and kindness in the workplace.
