Empathy Workshop

Here we outline the basic concepts, format and processes for the development and delivery of empathy skills.

The key is that only a highly skilled professional who is a Master Facilitator can deliver and obtain the promised results for the client. This is the PMP edge.

"Emotional Intelligence is the #1 predictor of professional success and personal excellence."


  • Sharpen awareness of your natural (default) behavioral style along with your emotions and the impact of both on others.
  • Develop the capacity to alter (flex) your behavior to match or support other people's needs.
  • Momentarily dim (set aside) your own needs to understand those of others.
  • Experience the joy in other people's self-discovery and successes.
  • Recognize when self-absorption in you and others is getting in the way of effectiveness.
  • Choose to accept responsibility for what's not working, no matter who or what is the cause.
