Celebrate SafeCare BC’s fifth anniversary, by participating in our Anniversary Speaker Series,
featuring five education sessions of varying topics in different parts of the province.

Saying what you Mean and Meaning what you say with Respectful Communication

Presenter: Shannon Kenning
September 19 – 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Castle Wood Village (Castlegar) 

This session will address issues of miscommunication and indirect communication by defining what it is and giving you tips for assertive and positive communication. You will gain insight that people may have different values, and this might mean that we approach and perceive situations in contrasting ways.    

Negative communication can impact employee wellness and can lead to increased absenteeism. Through interactive design, you will gain valuable tools for engaging in positive workplace communications. The session will help empower people to have a respectful and courageous conversation, without confrontation.

Shannon Kenning is a licensed practical nurse, who has worked in long-term care for 13 years. She is currently the director of care at Castleview Care Home, in Castlegar. She has a passion for providing high-quality person-centred care, and with her team has achieved accreditation with exemplary status, along with great quality indicators for residents.
