Key takeaways: Though it seems redundant to say these days, we really are in an unprecedented situation with this global pandemic. Many companies have had to move to a remote work setup, which we are collectively realizing leads to its own set of pros and cons. As new stressors add to old ones, we are all trying to figure out ways to stay well while staying effective at the job. To do this, we must first understand and take care of ourselves, and then spread that outward to support others on our team. This workshop will explore all of this and more. Focusing mostly on radical empathy in practice, especially in this virtual age of COVID, we will look at what empathy really means vs. what we’re often told, the difference between empathy vs. sympathy, demonstrating empathy, empathic listening, and using the information gleaned to inform your behaviour and responses to others. We will do all of this through a series of interactive and group activities.
