We ALL long to be witnessed in our uniqueness, valued in our identity and fully heard in our stories. We want to be and feel included in meaningful experiences that acknowledge our self- definition, while being in community. Essentially, we all want and need empathy for our basic survival. We are learning, against prevailing wisdom, that human nature is not to seek mere autonomy, but to be in companionship with others. Thus, the necessary maneuver is to try to translate this human component within our work environments to ignite a spirit of creativity, innovation, and growth.

Please join Lisa Ike-Alvarez as she walks you through this this thought-stimulating session. You will learn how to leverage empathy in your work contexts to help you understand your employees well enough to work with them, communicate better, meet their needs with an improved self-awareness and connect across differences.

Attendees will learn

  • To understand their emotional range and how this un/awareness may affect their employees’ work performance.
  • To acknowledge the benefits of extending empathy to their teams in order to promote an enriching and emotionally healthy work environment.
  • How to accurately identity emotions of their employees so their response is thoughtful and emotionally sensitive.
  • Divergent ways of responding empathetically to their employees to ensure they are acting in alignment to their needs.
