August 8, 2014, 11:30 AM - 1 PM
Presenter: Duffy Swan, FRENCH Family of Companies
Topic:

Ethics

The Power of Our Words
There is an old Proverb that begins, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” At the same time, as children, we heard the little taunt, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

We are cautioned about the use of flattery and to always speak the truth. So, how does all this work? Is it possible in our day-to-day activities that we do, indeed, have the power to speak “life and death” to others?

And, are there certain ethical principles that must be considered in this mix?

On August 8th, we will spend a little time with these concepts, along with a video clip or two to highlight key points.

This program will be held at:
French Reception Center, 10500 Lomas NE, Albuquerque (just East of Eubank)
