As humans we are wired for empathy and the need for interpersonal connections. Empathy begins developing in early childhood but must be actively practiced over a lifetime. Based on current research, leading with empathy can assist individuals and teams in dealing with internal and external conflict. Empathy encourages individuals to approach interactions with an attitude to connect and understand, rather than to win. This interactive session will allow participants the opportunity to explore empathy as a tool for improving human connections and assisting in the team process.
