Title: Empathy and Execution – Connection and Future Forward (Yes, even during a pandemic!)


Join us for a recharging conversation about empathy and connection as we lead in organizations, groups and teams through work, volunteerism, faith, and family while we face challenges including working from home and returning to work. How do we balance compliance and compassion?  We have the capacity to use empathy and connection to provide stability, structure, reassurance, and confidence. More than ever, we’re reaching for each other, looking for opportunities to connect and how we feed and grow our cultures. 

Many times, we get it exactly right. Sometimes, it goes terribly wrong. Right now, we struggle with what to say, how to say, when to say it, and how will we deal with the response? 

Connecting and leading through empathy takes practice and self-awareness. There are ways that we may unwittingly drive disconnection even when our greatest hope is for warmth, understanding, and problem solving. Let’s do some work around developing empathy as a first response, creating inviting space and safety for tough conversations, bravery, and innovation.  

We are all in this together. Let’s remember and reinforce our connection to each other, to our service goals, and missions.   We will go forward and we can’t wait to support you in dreaming about the future, aligning your strategy, and connecting with people in every area of your life.
