TalkShop clients share their learning experiences from workshops in speech, writing, leadership, and personality development.

 

The many tips discussed in this TalkShop Workshop will guide us in performing the tasks necessary for our post. Active Listening is good to be performed in crucial moments. The TalkShop Workshop transformed me to uphold our own values and not change personality for others.

Moments of silence are important. Some people never appreciate it. They always fill the time, spend time to talk, and make fun by talking too much, which sometimes irritate others. It’s good that we have this session with TalkShop to make some noisy people aware and value silence and listening.

The TalkShop workshop is very productive. Time management table is very useful in my official and personal work. Values prioritization can be clearly guided. Silence meditation made me revisit and know better about myself. I am looking forward to more tools and techniques that will make me able to overcome all stresses that come my way.

Today’s session with TalkShop taught me how to fight stress. Stress is inevitable and if we get caught by it, it can ruin us. So this session with TalkShop is very important to me because it made us identify our stresses and how to cope with them.

Today’s session with TalkShop is enlightening, energizing, and therapeutic. Meditation and devoting silence from time to time takes away the busyness of a person’s emotions, leading to freedom and a stress-free life. It is worthwhile for a person to take a look at his situation and assess his purpose in this life.

Learning the basic steps on how to handle stress through TalkShop is really enlightening. I like the simulated exercises and the sharing of the participants. The performance of Sheila Viesca and Robert Borjal is trainee-centered and they made most of the participants’ active participation and sharing. The more I participated, the more I know myself now.

The TalkShop Workshop today really reduced our stress. The role-playing activity is what we enjoyed most because we laughed at ourselves for we made fun of ourselves. The meditation part also gave me time to look and walk around at the same time, talk to myself and appreciate the beauty of nature and how wonderful life is.

Lily Pearl Guerrero, Chief Administrative Officer, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

In today’s TalkShop Workshop, I learned how to prioritize actions, and say “no” with a “yes”. During the exercise of silence, when I felt very relaxed, I was able to communicate with God and I was able to pray for my sister who is sick at present. After the exercise, I felt good. I can now manage stress and feel relaxed better.

TalkShop can change and help in your personal problems. The course design was able to grasp the participants’ attention and I like the meditation exercise the most.

In this afternoon session with TalkShop, I was able to appreciate the value of relationships, specifically with God, family, work, and friends. I had a self-realization of what God has done to me, good or bad, right or wrong. I learned how to appreciate and give special care to the environment. Most of all, I thank God for all the blessings that HE has given me.

For today’s topic with TalkShop, we learned that every individual has his own priorities in life. We have to consider what is important and weigh them. The program design is well attuned to the needs of the participants, practical, and applicable. Sheila Viesca and Robert Borjal are accommodating and facilitative, and are all masters in their own field. This session made me realize how good or wonderful the hand of God is and how it is good to live in this world.

Today’s session with TalkShop enabled me to identify more vividly and clearly all my priorities in life and discard those that are not of utmost importance. The last activity of the day invigorated further my personal relationship with God and at the same time energized my wearied soul allowing me to give more than what is expected of me. It taught me not to worry much about the stressful environment around us.

Silence can mean everything to a person deprived of the opportunity to talk but it can also mean something to a person granted with the facility to speak. TalkShop taught me in their Stress Management program that silence can also be an effective means to relieve me from the stresses of life.

Suzanne Rodriguez, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

This is the first time I attended this kind of training by TalkShop. I really appreciate it. The TalkShop Facilitators are very intelligent and knowledgeable regarding the topic. They really gave exercises. During meditation, I felt like releasing all the pain in me. It is as if I am talking with the Lord and I really feel His presence. I even noticed tears in my eyes asking forgiveness from the Lord. It was an excellent presentation.

Rosemarie Cleofe, Chief Labor and Employment Officer, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

The resource speakers from TalkShop delivered the topics and modules very simply and everything was easy to grasp. I learned so much that I will be able to use them as potent tools in dealing with challenges in our post. The workshop design is excellent. Today, the particular area I like is the Johari’s window and time management table in dealing with stress. The TalkShop Workshop enhanced the learnings as well.

Sergio Borgueta, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration

Relieved, refreshed, and enlightened, there’s nothing more refreshing than a moment spent with God. We are missing our most valuable time with Him. Listening and being silent are two different words and meaning but composed of the same essence. TalkShop made me realize that keeping silent during stressful moments and listening to yourself and the whispers of God is the best way to cope with stressful conditions.

Bernardo Toriano, Officer-in-Chief Assistant Regional Director, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

This TalkShop session trained me to be more appreciative of the need to manage stress. What I like most is getting introduced to the art of silence. Sheila Viesca and Robert Borjal are highly facilitative and know the topics by heart. I somehow felt relieved after. It was as if something heavy has just been extracted from my chest. The realization that stress is not at all bad and that it can be conquered and overcome, and at the very least, managed. I will be looking forward to more enriching workshops and activities with TalkShop.

Violeta Buenaventura, Chief Labor and Employment Officer, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

The group workshops and individual reflections in the TalkShop session are valuable tools in stress management. The Time Management table technique impressed me and could assist me in stress management and work prioritization. I am confident that this TalkShop Session will help us in coping with stress once we are deployed and posted abroad. Thank you for this opportunity of learning through TalkShop.

For today’s session in TalkShop, I realized that I should always keep my balance mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I’ve learned a lot from this session especially saying “no” with a “yes.” The program was just right because there was no dull moment and no information overload. There were very good TalkShop Facilitators who were well-versed in the field of Stress Management Workshop. I came to a realization that life is beautiful and it is a matter of managing it to the fullest.

Reynald Dacanay, Administrative Assistant, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

The sessions with TalkShop are just right. It fits the needs of the group. I particularly like the “Silence Exercise” where in I realized my potential to concentrate and listen to a particular aspect of the environment doing the exercise. At first, it was difficult for me to concentrate from distractions but later I found myself in aspects of nature like chirping of the birds, or buzzing of bugs. I am now able to internalize things for meditation.

Rene Mangune, Senior Labor and Employment Officer, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

It was a well thought of and presented Stress Management Workshop. I learned a lot of tips and practices to lessen stress. I like the group activities and the silence / centering activity.

Today’s activities in TalkShop were so enriching. I’ve learned that stress can be avoided through proper prioritization of tasks and scheduling. I like the meditation and self-realization exercises facilitated by the well prepared TalkShop Consultants. When under stress, we must determine stressors and weed them out immediately.

Thank you to TalkShop for a wonderful experience I have had here, for the opportunity to be with my newfound friends, and for very good and inspiring TalkShop speakers.

The last part of this TalkShop Session made me realize the value of time better. I learned that there are always ways of saying no by not being upfront about it. It taught me realizations of what I already know. And yet I was able to deepen my understanding of myself better.

Rea Dalumpines, Technical Specialists, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

The program design of this workshop is just right because of the great activities and the well prepared TalkShop Consultants. There was a reawakening of what we already have inside us. Going out of the lecture room to be alone with yourself is refreshing.

Today’s Time and Stress Management with TalkShop taught us techniques that have been appropriately selected. The TalkShop Team is well prepared and they think about applicable scenarios of the topics well. We all must manage the work, life, the public we serve with the end in view of achieving a balanced life—personally, professionally, and financially.

Today’s session in TalkShop involved a lot of activities. The incense lighting was effective in releasing my doubt and it helped me be at peace with myself and loving nature while thanking God for a life that is good and already wonderful. I am grateful for all the blessings. Silence and centering is really the key to empower ourselves and be ready for a bigger challenge in life.

I’ve gained a lot in today’s activity with TalkShop. It is something unique for me, and this is the module that we need. I wish those in our home office can have one like this.

The day’s TalkShop session made me curious and more excited of what the rest of the course can offer.

The TalkShop exercise of being has reaffirmed my belief in the power of nature to reinvigorate my soul. The positive energy from the trees and the sound of nature has a calming effect on my mind. The TalkShop Consultants are authorities on their topic and they delivered the program and activities well. I learned to be able to keep still through meditation.

Ma. Nena German, Labor Officer I, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Being silent is not so hard to do but being deliberately silent to focus on one’s self is not that easy though. It requires effort, will, and focus to be able to introspect within the self to understand who we are. In so doing, we can understand other people also. Through the TalkShop Activity, I learned to be introspective even if the world around is noisy.

RolindaSardone, Labor and Employment Officer, Department of Labor and Employment

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Today’s TalkShop has successfully delved into the value of time and stress management. It was modified to become simple and we were taught a lot about personal time, values, and priorities. The TalkShop Facilitators are very professional, effective, and have mastery of the topic. I will definitely not forget about meditation techniques from this TalkShop Workshop.
