A Message from Our President
LOVE—Just a Word?
Love. Love? LOVE! Same word, but different meanings when placed with punctuation, right? February is a month we look at love in different ways. How does that translate into the workplace?
At the quarterly Texas SHRM meeting I attended, speaker and author of the book “The Liberty of Our Language Revealed—We Bring About What We Talk About” Thomas Blackwell reminded us how a word can impact our daily lives, culture, attitude, and outlook. Always be on the positive because as he stated, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”. (Quoted from American Bestselling author Wayne Dyer).
Some great takeaways included the importance of being positive and use of positive words in our daily lives. Love is a positive word, and having that one word be the motivating factor on our thought process will translate into our daily dealings, even when situations, working environment, or co-workers attempt to influence to the negative. We can have a culture by design or by default. If you want things to get better, than you have to get better. This includes what and how we speak and treat others. Yes, it does have a ripple effect. People tend to act how we speak to them.
I’m excited to share with you some upcoming events to include:
We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
