Empathic Leadership & Organizational Culture
Anita Nowak, PhD , Author, Speaker, Culture Coach at Purposeful Empathy | Lecturer, McGill University

In the face of climate change, Artificial Intelligence and crippling polarization, empathy has never been more important to democracy and the future of humanity. And in response to COVID, calls for greater EDI (equity, diversity and inclusion) and psychological safety at work, organizations now understand the importance of empathic leadership and culture too.
The good news: humans are born to empathize, collective empathy has been a part of our successful evolution as a species, and extending empathy is good for us.
In this 1-hour interactive presentation, Dr. Anita Nowak will discuss the following, drawing from neuroscience, leadership studies, and positive psychology:

  1. What is empathy and why is it so important?
  2. What does empathy have to do with organizational success?
  3. How can we become more empathic leaders?
  4. How can we create more empathic cultures?
