Program Description:

“If You Can’t Say Something Nice, What DO You Say?”

We've all been told "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."  This high energy, interactive presentation based on Sarita's book provides practical approaches and positive phrases for those times when you need to say something NOT so nice.  In the interest of increasing integrity and civility in the workplace, you will learn how to respectfully deflect the negative comment of a well-meaning business associate, kindly clue in a co-worker and constructively convey concerns…without destroying the relationship.

 You will learn:

  • How to know if you should confront a situation or just let it go
  • Three-step process for conveying concerns with tact and respect
  • How to respond when someone asks your opinion and you have nothing nice to say 
  • Sarita’s Top 10 Positive Communication Phrases
  • Three P’s for staying positive…even when you’re surrounded by negativity

 Recommended for 1 CPE in Ethics at the basic level. 
Program is suitable at the basic level for individuals who have routine interactions with others that could potentially lead to contentious conversations.  OK Ethics makes no guarantees as it is up to the individual practitioner to determine relevance to their specific area of practice.
