Class 3 | Self-Awareness and Empathy

The third and final session encourages leaders to harness the concept of self-awareness - to self-regulate your natural responses and “show up” in caring, empathetic ways employees need during uncertain times. Leveraging the Platinum Rule – treat others the way they wish to be treated – by taking time to listen for intent demonstrates consideration. Emotionally intelligent leaders realize employee response to the pandemic is not “one-size-fits all”. When leaders practice self-awareness, empathy, and respectful communications, then employee trust, commitment, and productivity soon follow. This is a two-hour program.
