With Nancy Olson
There's no getting around it: we all have to live and work with other humans. Some make perfect sense and do exactly what we expect. And others... don't. Join this session to strengthen your power of empathy toward those you don't understand, those you do - and yourself. Drawing on the life experience and wisdom in the room, Nancy will guide you and fellow learners through an exploration of empathy's importance in all aspects of our lives. From there, you will participate in facilitated class discussion, personal reflection and exercises to flex your empathy muscles. You will also learn the challenges to empathy, and when empathy may have gone too far. Empathy is a path to managing conflict, expanding our understanding of others, and healthier relationships.
