This one day ONLINE course examines, in a unique, thought-provoking and human way, the important and beneficial role empathy and emotional awareness play in inclusive leadership, staff well being, productivity and retention, and what erodes it. The day is an empathy journey that will help develop an understanding of the psychology and neuroscience of empathic and emotionally focused thinking and challenging unconscious processes. It will examine, in an authentic and honest way how our own emotions and biases influence us and our outcomes. Essential knowledge and skills, through interactive learning, will be developed to understand and cultivate personal empathy for others, balanced with personal awareness and self-care
