When it comes to the workplace we know a lot of people, but do we really understand them?
That’s where empathy comes in. In May we begin a series of meetups focused on empathy.
Psychology Today offers this definition of empathy, “Empathy is the experience of understanding another person's thoughts, feelings, and condition from their point of view, rather than from your own. You try to imagine yourself in their place in order to understand what they are feeling or experiencing. Empathy facilitates pro-social (helping) behaviors that come from within, rather than being forced, so that we behave in a more compassionate manner.”
On May 11, 2018, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the Department of Enterprise Services, 1500 Jefferson St SE, Olympia, WA 98501, come explore ways to increase your empathetic muscles and discover the ways empathy can lead to more productive interactions with our co-workers as well as those we serve.
We are very happy to have Jessica Dang from Results Washington to guide us through this deep exploration of empathy for this Meet Up.
Feel free to share this invitation with others, and do register to RSVP so we can prepare to welcome you!
