Additional Information:

Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. This powerful tool is too often sidetracked by our desire to fix, change, rescue, or problem solve. Despite admirable intentions, sometimes empathy alone is the best way to serve as a productive team member or effective leader.

Gain a deeper understanding of empathy, why it matters, and its benefits. Plus, learn strategies to employ empathy, the right questions to ask, and how to improve your professional relationships.

Improving your empathy skills will help you foster a culture of open communication as well as understand the motivations and worries of your team, which will in turn help your organization reach its strategic goals. Register today!
