Power of the Word

We are in for a wonderful discussion in our next DMeetUp on the 1st of August, at 3 p.m. CET, with Dr. Larissa Chuprina, a long-time SIETARian, Positive Psychology Practitioner, and ESL and Culture Coach whose passion is in how we use words creatively.

We will enjoy an interactive session exploring how the words we use and the manner we speak influence the outcomes and create the world around us.

Power of the Word: Creating the world with the Language we use.

Following an interactive session, we will then have mini talks within small groups to discuss and reflect on the relationship between language use and its consequences in personal relationships, politics, social media, and problem-solving. Together we will reflect on:

  • Relationship between perception and the Language (infamous examples from history)
  • Creating a cultural portrait of Self with words that empower, encourage, and inspire.
  • We will answer the question of how awareness among Language professionals, Interculturalists, and communication professionals can help improve relationships locally and globally.

• How can we promote inclusive language at work and play? (We vs. I and They)
•What actions can we take to promote positive, hopeful, and inspiring language with a focus on possibilities for personal and societal well-being?

  • Commenting on the phrase, “My words I choose and the tone I use bring us closer together and resolve any problem.”
  • Reflection on what we learned and what next
