Leadership Development: The Empathetic Leader
Today, being empathetic is seen as one of the strongest and most valuable leadership characteristics. In collaboration with UC-Berkeley this experiential workshop was designed to share insights around the value of empathy, what it looks like in team dynamics, and how to strengthen this skill within our teams and ourselves.
