Marie Miyashiro – Empathy in Workplaces – Myths & Miracles
What are some ways we can practice self-empathy and empathy with others at work that is “professional”?
How is empathy in workplaces different from empathy between us as individuals, couples, families or communities?
Why is empathy the “missing link” for People, Planet and Profits?
Organizations are central to our lives. We work in them, buy from them, love and hate them. If we believe in the transformative power of empathy to “make life more wonderful”, then there comes an intersection between empathy and organizations. Let’s explore these questions together. We’ll look at research, case studies and first-hand stories of empathy in workplaces.
