Anger

Anger robs a person of his wisdom. Take away the wisdom a person gains through his learning and life’s experiences, and he is back to the level of a child.

Arrogance

Harmful speech is quite often rooted in our belief that things should be done our way.

Blaming Others

When a person is always right and everyone else is always wrong, he does not accept any responsibility for his failures.

Competitiveness

Some people just have to compete. Everything is about them; they fail to think about what a particular fact or situation means to another person.

Violating Trust

Nothing stings as much as a someone betraying someone’s confidence, using information to debase or humiliate someone.

Criticizing Others

A person does not realize the hurt they cause when they do not follow through with their promises.

What Is This?
Student ambassadors will lead guided discussion groups of 10-15 participants in 8 weekly sessions, beginning this fall. Each session will last 45 minutes and will include three 15-minute modules (2 on What Causes harmful speech, 1 on Strategies to turn our speech positive). Participants will receive workshop material and short, practical assignments to put the workshop into practice.
