NEW FOR 2019 - Three Day Program

NOTE: Your registration is for all three days of this program.

Modern Leadership: Understanding and Using Empathy is designed to help you understand and implement empathy & perspective-taking techniques in day-to-day leadership and management. The ability to understand another individual’s context and perspective is essential in leading direct-reports, and perhaps even more so when leading up. Empathetic thinking and behavior are also critical in lateral influence. To drive change, a leader needs first to understand why people resist it in the first place.

  • Understand conceptually what empathy and perspective-taking are
  • Develop frameworks to aid in deploying perspective-taking tools appropriately in various situations and environments

  • Enhanced ability to influence and persuade
  • Improved professional relationships
  • Increased effectiveness in managing vertical relationships (both up and down)
