Effective empathy

Empathy is associated with building and maintaining good interpersonal relationships, as well as with maintaining certain social values. But for businesses in particular, Effective Empathy is a critical skill. From the Board to management to your front-facing employees, Effective Empathy lays the foundation for:

  • Good judgment and decision making
  • Employee engagement & loyalty
  • Stakeholder engagement & negotiation
  • Product development & design
  • Marketing and sales

Effective Empathy isn't about sympathizing with others, it's about being able to understand other people - their drivers, their contexts, their constraints - and respond to them as individuals in any circumstance. Our innovative workshop takes participants through a sequence of critical thinking exercises that together build a framework for looking at the world from a sharper, fresher angle that situates empathy as a concrete tool at the center of the lens. Whether as a general exercise to improve overall performance in the above areas or in response to specific issues, from interpersonal issues in your team to a creative block in product development, this workshop is an easy and exciting path to a smarter new perspective.

It can also be tailored to individuals looking to mainstream deep understanding of the business challenges and opportunities that come with gender equity.
