Silence and well-being

Professional well-being is now referred to in corporate life as QWL, or “Quality Of Working Life”. How may QWL be reached? One of the poisons of workplaces is silence between colleagues. Silence is at times toxic or manipulative but at times also expressive of calm, serenity and harmony.

This brief session provides a tool allowing participants to analyze the type of silence they find themselves in and take control again when another colleague tries to use that silence for domination purposes.

In this session, about as many as 15 different types of silence are deciphered and participants receive the keys to their analysis. Understanding these destabilizing situations frees them from the effects they will no longer have to endure.

Our commitments

Intercultural intelligence has become a basic need in our lives. In the last decades, professional relations are increasingly pluricultural. With technology bringing together to the same conference calls colleagues from all over the world, the "other" may be a next-door neighbor – or an associate from Singapore.

One December day many years ago I was accompanying a foreign delegation visiting a French ministry as their interpreter. I was asked to assist in all the exchanges between the participants. At the end of the meeting I heard the debriefing, which lacked cultural and political context. I shared this information with the minister and with his teams, and this was when my vocation as intercultural intelligence consultant came into being.
