Gentleness on the job

Workplace Conflict

The power of an oft-forgotten fruit of the Spirit in the workplace

“Requirement for the job: must be a person characterised by gentleness”.

Chances are that’s a job description that you’ve never encountered before. On the contrary, a requirement of many workplaces today is that employees do the exact opposite. Offices run on people who refuse to take no for an answer, who throw their weight around, and so “get things done”. Gentleness in the workplace can seem entirely out of place.

The secret to workplace communication: Radical candour?

Workplace Conflict

Communication is regularly cited as one of people's biggest frustrations in the workplace. How can we do it better?

Kim Scott is a best-selling author and communicator, but that hasn’t always been the case. After making a presentation to senior management at Google she was pulled aside by one executive and given fairly direct feedback. After first offering some positive feedback, the executive told Scott plainly that she said “um” too often. “You are one of the smartest people I know, but saying ‘um’ so much makes you sound stupid”.
