Workshop Title: Compassion and Empathy
Workshop Cost: Free
Traditionally, it has been thought that in order to lead well you need to be a certain kind of person: driven; decisive; hard-nosed…and usually male. But while such traits might apply to Napoleon and Steve Jobs, the world is changing. In the wake of global economic instability, leadership scandals and an increase in public awareness of emotional intelligence, society now expects leaders that are not only visionary but compassionate and empathetic.
Thankfully, with careful attention and practice, compassion and empathy can be cultivated. In this two-part session Dr. Brennan Jacoby will help participants develop a deeper understanding of compassion and empathy before leading them in exercises designed to help cultivate emotional intelligence. These sessions will be both grounded in theory and packed with practical tips.
Deposit required: YES
