Empathy@Work for Non-Profits – A Thought Partner Event Promotion

February 1 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm EST


A Live Workshop, Equipping Non-Profit Leaders, Teams and Managers to Create Cultures of Care at Work

Sponsored by the Buckingham Foundation

Empathy is not a nice-to-have personality trait.

It is an essential skill set that unleashes thriving and productivity at work.

The last four years are marked by uncertainty, challenge, and change and because of it, people are craving meaningful support.

We know this because:

  • 85% of workers report a decline in their overall wellness over the last year
  • 76% of employees directly linked their productivity to the presence (or absence!) of empathy at work

The problem?

Many employees feel overwhelmed and under-equipped when a disruptive life event occurs. Team leaders and HR departments aren’t always sure what to say, so they hope for the best, retreat to silence or toss out a tired cliché (“It’s going to be ok” is rarely what someone needs to hear).  Change and compassion fatigue take a further toll, leaving teams feeling overwhelmed and under-equipped.

Join Workplace Empathy Expert Liesel Mertes and fellow non-profit leaders on February 1st to develop empathetic leadership skills, share best practices and learn how to co-create workplaces where people want to show up and do their best work.
