How we can help you:
The Empathic Minds Organisation focuses on the role of empathy in industry, society, sport and culture, and on the fantastic advantages of an empathic approach. Empathy provides understanding of colleagues, climates and customers, improving relationships, wellbeing, and maximising performance.
Here’s how we can help you to develop Empathic Minds:
Developing Empathic Leadership:
Your leadership can be improved with empathic practices. Through one-to-one coaching, we will develop the skills required to become an empathic leader.
Creating Safer Spaces:
Our assessments, workshops and coaching will change the emotional climate of your organisation, creating safe spaces for people to thrive.
The design of your workplace influences the emotions and behaviours of those within it. Empathic workplace design enhances performance and wellbeing. Empathic workspaces will also help influence retention and attract talent. We will provide advice and recommend changes, or play an advisory role in the design of new spaces.
Empathy will help you to understand your customer needs. We will you to develop empathic behaviours, and we can conduct research aimed at gaining a better understanding of customer perspectives.
Developing Empathy in Teams:
Colleagues who understand each other form cohesive groups and successful teams. Through our workshops, we will help you to develop empathy in your teams and across the organisation so that it becomes part of the culture.
Communicating with Empathy:
We will help you cultivate empathic styles of communication that maintain clarity and respect, and enrich relationships.
Empathy now features on job specifications in all industries, although it is not easy to measure. Organisations cannot rely on the applicant’s self-evaluation and psychometric tests are not always the solution. We will help you to assess and recruit empathic individuals, to enhance the workforce they join and play a role in organisational success.
Empathy Workshops for Schools and Academies:
The leaders of tomorrow are expected to lead with empathy. Looking at role models in areas of interest such as sport forms a focus of our workshops, along with the chance for participants to gain a deeper understanding of empathy and also the style of empathic leadership.
Socially Distanced Learning
In the current climate, to maintain safe spaces, one-to-one online sessions are employed where possible. We look forward to commencing workshops later in 2021 and to your enquiries.
