The Pittsburgh Technology Leaders Group explores “Linguistic Reality”


Purpose of Meeting:
It never ceases to amaze me that people (especially professionals) gather and distribute the bulk of their knowledge via language without ever considering the impact of the medium.  For example, people who work with the 'mind-body problem’ seldom realize that the very term they use to address their interests both defines and biases their approach.   I plan to include a number of compelling examples of how the use of language permeates almost all of our work.

 

We will discuss a number of compelling examples of how the use of language influences what we do.

We can all build a clear and concise message centered around our organization.

This session will be led by:
Bill Acheson

Bill taught in the Department of Communication at the University of Pittsburgh for over 20 years.

Since 1996, he has worked with employees from such organizations as 3M, AIG, Bank of America, Bayer, Jackson, Lexus, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Trane, Wells Fargo, the US Coast Guard, and the National Football League.
