Enterprise Leadership:  Connecting Across the Organization

Learn how to become a more empathetic, mindful and cross-organizational leader. A growing body of research suggests that empathy and perspective-taking are powerful leadership tools that broaden ones capacity to understand differing perspectives and respond with appropriate measure.  This three-day course focuses on several key elements that help you connect with individuals at all levels of your organization, improving your ability to influence, organize, and motivate others towards a common purpose.  You will practice techniques to enable greater enterprise leadership capacity and you’ll identify opportunities to improve outcomes through a variety of empathetic leadership frameworks.

Day 2 – Navigating Negotiation and Conflict
  • Apply perspective-taking techniques to uncover compatible underlying interests between competing parties in order to both create and claim resources
  • Understand how over-empathizing with one’s counterpart can impede the discovery of mutually beneficial solutions

Day 3 – Leading Productive Collaboration

  • Assess current decision-making orientation of oneself and that of the firm
