Communicating with Empathy

Understanding and applying empathy personally and professionally.

Empathy is the core to being human and connecting with others. Without empathy you can’t truly understand what it’s like to be in someone else’s position. As we all change and adapt to our growing world of awareness, empathy takes a front row seat in whatever role you’re in. This course covers the key elements of empathy, why it’s important, and how to integrate core empathy elements in your personal and professional life. In this course, we’ll take time to deep dive into four key things around empathy:

What you’ll learn

  • Understanding what it is and how it works.
  • The different types of empathy and when to use them.
  • Empathetic listening.

Please keep in mind that empathy is hard and it takes practice and dedication to continuously improve and grow – we all take time to understand, practice and develop over time. I look forward to working through this course with you and providing personal examples that have helped me on my way to understanding and practicing empathy both personally and professionally.
