Go from “speaking Geek to Greek” by learning how to connect your logos to your pathos in this fast-paced, highly interactive how-to session on building Tactical Empathy in order to allow the other person to have your way!


Most people know how to be empathetic; it’s just that many of us don’t know how to use the most effective sequence.  Then, there are those of us who could use some more support in understanding others’ perspectives, and, lastly, there are the apathetic ones – who may, at least, realize that their way tends to end up showing themselves the highway, so they probably should communicate differently, without having to resort to singing kumbaya.  This session is a shortened version of a 5-hour program designed to increase efficiency and efficacy between you and others, as well as to maximize creative problem-solving among team members.
