    Modern Influencing:  The Power of Leading with Empathy …

    In human development, we have the opportunity to change the workplace as we know it.  Current events have forced us to adapt to a more human and more digital workplace.  We need business and organizational leaders, and those we serve, to listen and learn from us.  This program will tap into science to unleash your influencing skills.

    If we’ve learned anything during the COVID19 pandemic, it’s the importance of empathy — especially when it comes to how we influence others — and treating employees like human beings.

    No doubt, COVID19 has changed our perspectives on the modern workplace, calling for people in general to provide greater clarity, give more autonomy, and build stronger relationships that ultimately lead to more equity in the workplace.

    So, what can you do to ensure employees are thriving during and after these changes?  We invite you to attend our February program featuring Alex Draper, CEO and founder of DX Learning, a Chicago-based cultural advancement firm dedicated to creating more human workplaces.

    During this lively and experiential session, you’ll discover what biases blind us from leading with empathy, how to accelerate your understanding of other people’s human needs, and a simple and pragmatic tool called C.A.R.E.  that you can apply in every facet of your life.  Maximize your ability to influence others and take what you learn back to your own organization or clients.  If you embrace the notion of “treat others as they wish to be treated,” so much more can be achieved!
