Leading with Empathy

Leadership Skills Development for Executives and Senior Leaders

While much has been written about the anecdotal benefits of empathetic leadership, the key point is often overlooked - that empathy is experienced differently by each of us, and by understanding these complexities we can directly improve leadership performance.

Participants will learn that empathy can be refined and developed through an understanding of cognitive and affective processing - and that the outcomes can be used to inform effective leadership strategy and decision-making.
