Beyond Connection — An Exploration of Practical Empathy in the Workplace

As organizations emerge from an era marred by challenge, research shows empathy fatigue is plaguing leaders. Despite intentions to boost trust and connection, no clear framework exists for practicing empathy at work—and that often leaves both leaders and employees frustrated by initiatives that feel warm and fuzzy yet fall short of meeting their needs. Hear the latest insights from the 2024 Global Culture Report and discuss to practical strategies to build a culture of practical empathy.

Join this session to discuss:

  • What six behaviors lead to improved trust, belonging, and fulfillment
  • How practical empathy impacts vital business outcomes
  • How effective recognition amplifies practical empathy in the workplace
