OfficeHours: Empathy: A Critical Driver of Workplace Performance

Online • November 16, 2018

If you want to demystify the concept of empathy & ultimately gain a sense of social safety in your workplace, join DRIVEN’s November 16th webinar to reveal how empathy can be a productivity enhancer.

Friday, November 16, 2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

Research done by DDI (Development Dimensions International) found that empathy, which is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another, is a "critical driver of overall performance" for management. Yet empathy isn’t taught or even evaluated in the workplace. 

During DRIVEN’s November OfficeHours, we’ll explore why empathy is a differentiator, how to practice empathy and what gets in the way of having empathy in the workplace. Naturally, neuroscience will play a role in the discussion as we explore how empathy can contribute to a sense of workplace social safety. We’ll also explore the difference between empathy and sympathy and introduce new research findings about what may surpass empathy as a critical communication proficiency.
