    Event description

    SOLD OUT!!!  Please contact Leanne on to discuss training options.

    Healthy Empathy plays a crucial role in team cohesion by promoting understanding, collaboration, and trust among team members. When team members can empathise with one another in a healthy way, they are better able to communicate effectively, anticipate one another's needs, and work together towards common goals.

    Here are a few ways empathy can promote team cohesion:

    1. Promoting understanding: When team members take the time to understand one another's perspectives and experiences, they can better relate to each other and work more effectively as a team. Empathy allows team members to appreciate one another's strengths and weaknesses, and to collaborate in a way that plays to each member's strengths.
    2. Encouraging open communication: Empathy creates a safe environment where team members feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings. This openness promotes communication and encourages team members to work together to resolve conflicts and find solutions.
    3. Fostering trust: When team members are empathetic towards each other, they build trust and respect for one another. This trust allows them to rely on one another and work towards common goals without fear of judgement or rejection.

    Overall, healthy empathy plays an important role in creating a positive team dynamic that is focused on mutual respect and cooperation. By promoting understanding, open communication, and trust, empathy can help create a cohesive and effective team.

    Join us for an interactive day of learning and self reflection where you will learn WHAT healthy empathy is, WHY it matters to you and your team and HOW to effectively practice healthy empathy.

    This workshop is for teams ready to self reflect and come together to practice growth to demonstrate greater healthy empathy with  each other.

My name is Leanne Butterworth and I’m an Empathy Educator, TEDx speaker and university lecturer on a mission to create happy, healthy individuals, organisations and communities through interactive, accessible Empathy Training. An active member of the start-up, mental health and social enterprise communities, I have presented my Empathy work in Australia, the USA and Canada and I lecture Social Enterprise Business for the Queensland University of Technology. I’m a mum to Rowan and Zara, I love beach volleyball, I have a degree in Applied Science (UQ) and a Graduate Certificate in Business (Nonprofit and Philanthropy Studies - QUT).

    Through my experience and research, I’m convinced that healthy empathy is a skill that must be understood, embraced and practiced by everyone in our society from children to world leaders.  Creating a world where people feel heard, valued, visible and safe has the power to transform organisations and save lives.
