W2 - Dialogue Experience - Communicating without Words
CANTONESE
Workshop

The workshop will be delivered in a silent environment. Participants are challenged to let go of their familiar thought and behavioural patterns. Initially, they may find this difficult, frustrating and even overwhelming. However, through a series of carefully designed activities, participants will learn to adapt in the face of changes and express their ideas with body language and facial expressions. Participants will discover that silence can be exciting, fun and insightful. The benefits of the workshop as listed below are then re-enforced by debriefing, reflection and consolidation of learning.

  • Effective two-way communication, using the language that recipients could understand
  • To change and adapt, align with team members in the right mindset and action
  • To unleash unlimited potential and possibilities in a wordless environment
  • To think out of the box and be resourceful

The sharing will mainly focus on promoting and emphasising the importance of your mental health. The mental health situation in Hong Kong will first be discussed, showing how Hong Kong citizens are currently suffering from this issue and the lack of attention towards it. Afterwards, the benefits of taking care of theirs plus their employee's mental state, and the consequences of not doing so will be introduced.
