When is Silence Golden? When Is It Not?

Join us Sunday Feb. 8th 10am ET to explore when is silence golden and when is it not.

People have always had different views of the value of silence and different comfort levels with it. Now with so much technology in use, we see people’s views about silence more publicly. Silence affects interaction, our lives, and our work. We will explore it in this week’s #Peopleskills global Twitter chat.

Silence – When is it golden and when is it not?

As we approach this Sunday’s people skills global Twitter chat (#peopleskills), let’s think about the value of silence and its use and misuse.

Some questions to get us thinking in advance:

  • What does silence bring to the world?
  • Sometimes silence is one way to avoid trouble. Does it ever become the trouble?
  • Silence seems to mean different things to different people. Why?
  • What does silence do to you or for you?
  • Traditional belief: “Children should be seen and not heard.” What were the results of this belief?
  • In the face of injustice, silence is ________________.
  • When is silence golden and when is it not?
  • How/when do great leaders use silence?
  • Can a leader’s silence cause trouble? Y/N How/How not?
  • How do we find balance between silence and verbal interaction?

These are just some questions to get us thinking. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

Bring your experience, curiosity, a beverage, and join the community on Sunday Feb. 8th 10am ET to explore when is it good to be silent and when is it not.
