Learn the influential art of communicating with empathy to develop trust with your coworkers and other stakeholders, and manage complexities by recognising unmet needs and issues in written and verbal communications.

Programme Overview

Empathy is not like a new software platform that can help us be more efficient. Empathy is learning to listen to someone else's heart.

As we move towards new work environments and human interactions blending physical and virtual spaces, how often do you stop to take some time and reflect on the challenges faced by those whom you work closely together?

It could be your customer who recently experienced a loss of income, your colleague raising his infant child during work from home circumstances, or your subordinates facing great anxiety in job security due to increasing news reports of retrenchments across industries.

In collaboration with Communications Specialist Dr Rinkoo Ghosh, our Communication with Empathy workshop will help you and your team bring the best out of professional relationships during these trying times.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the workshop, you will learn how to:

1. Recognise the essence of empathy when interacting with coworkers and other stakeholders.
2. Manage complexities by recognising unmet needs.
3. Apply key empathy techniques to manage concerns.
4. Demonstrate key empathy writing principles through your correspondences with the public and/or stakeholders.
5. Discern the unmet needs and issues implied in the written communications.
6. Nuance correspondence by embedding empathy in your writing.
