Sympathy is typically defined by feelings of pity for another person, without really understanding what it’s like to be in their situation. Empathy, on the other hand, refers to the capacity or ability to imagine oneself in the situation of another, experiencing the emotions, ideas, or opinions of that person. Far from fluffy, empathy is one of the most important skills for leaders, lawyers, and influencers at all levels. New research demonstrates empathy has powerful business benefits like innovation and performance.
Given this vital skill, In-House Connect is thrilled to connect you with Dr. Tracy Brower. Dr. Brower is a PhD sociologist studying work-life fulfillment and happiness. She is the author of The Secrets to Happiness at Work and Bring Work to Life and a contributor to Forbes.com and Fast Company. You can find her on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, or at tracybrower.com.
Join us for the next installment of our IHC Advantage Series, as Dr. Brower will discuss:
– What Empathy is;
– The business case for empathy; and
– How to develop empathy as a skill; and
– How to leverage empathy for increased impact.
After the presentation, all attendees are invited to participate in virtual networking via breakout rooms with Dr. Brower.
