Communicating with Empathy

This workshop explores the principles of empathy that foster the best, most productive communication in individuals and on tech teams in the workplace. Participants will take part in interactive games, discussions, and activities to identify their communication strengths and weaknesses; learn the empathy actions they already display and those that they need to incorporate into their daily lives for optimal communication; and how to approach all conversations from a place of understanding.

Key Takeaways

  • Participants will define what empathy is on their own terms, and they’ll understand how and why empathy is a benefit to any community or organization.
  • Participants will develop a system of communication they can share with and teach their teams at work that is rooted in empathy principles.
  • Participants will leave the workshop being more confident communicators; more understanding and prepared collaborators; and more engaged team members.
