April 5th, 2022 at 12 PM CST 


Session Description:

“The number of American workers quitting their jobs hit record highs in November, with 4.5 million people walking off the job” (Bureau of Labor Statistics Report).” Empathy is a skill every one can build whether it’s empathy for ourselves or for the teams with lead and support. In this hour long presentation, we will discuss empathy best practices and process to grow our empathy muscles. The impact of being a more empathetic leader extends beyond lower turnover and higher employee retention rates and extends to higher productivity and mental wellness.

Sessions attendees will practice activities, a session workbook, and work together in breakout rooms. Be prepared for an interactive experience like you have never experienced on a Workology webinar and online learning event.
