How Perceptions Affect Workplace Interactions

01:00 pm - 08/08/2017

@ Brentwood Darlington Community Center

7211 SE 62nd Ave
Portland OR  97206-7564



Given that we are all “diverse” individuals, with upbringings that are affected by different socio-economics, ethnic cultures, regions, religions, politics and other ideologies, we see the world through different “lenses.” Therefore when we interact with people who have different worldviews than ours, we tend to think of them as “difficult,” “strange,” or even “weird.” In this two hour facilitated session, participants will gain an understanding of how our lenses, or “perceptions” affect how we view the world and therefore impact the interactions we have with our colleagues and customers.

Presented by Lillian Tsai, founder of TsaiComms
