Growing Pains - or Growing Gains?
2nd Annual Bigger Small Talk Summit
Moorhead, Minnesota - June 10-11, 2008
So, do you sense the shift around you? Are people starting to talk about more important issues than the stuff they usually talk about? How about the questions you and others are asking?
I know I am feeling it. And sometimes it's maybe a bit uncomfortable. But isn't that the point of coming out of our comfort zones? It's going to be uncomfortable.
For me it's becoming more uncomfortable to keep talking about small stuff when I really want to talk about what matters. Maybe for some it's uncomfortable to venture into the unknown, especially in our workplaces. But the world is shifting whether we shift personally or not. People want more meaning in their work lives, which shifts into their personal lives. Workers are hungry for something, but they might not know exactly what they're hungry for.
These are the topics we'll be talking about - and moving to action on - at the Second Annual Bigger Small Talk Summit right here in Fargo-Moorhead June 10-11. You will get a chance to meet other like-minded people who are ready to take their communication to another level. We'll get a chance to ask new questions which will get us to more depth in our communication. We'll get ideas to take back to our own workplaces and families, no matter where in the world we live.
This shift doesn't have to be painful - it will actually be very GAINful if we just approach it that way.
