Use empathy and humility as a leader to build your team culture.
Many leaders encounter team members with toxic or narcissistic traits, and those team members can wreck a team dynamic if left unchecked. Join us for a 1-hour discussion to strategize how to address difficult team members from a place of humility and empathy. You’ll have the opportunity to further explore themes from Building Stronger Teams with Empathy and Humility for Leaders and to connect with leaders across higher education who are facing similar challenges.
Who Should Attend
This training will benefit new or aspiring leaders in higher education, as well as seasoned leaders who are looking to reevaluate their leadership style to respond to new challenges.
2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET
You’ll reflect on the ways you would like to use empathy and humility to address difficult faculty and staff. You'll discuss how empathy and humility can help you feel more confident in your leadership role, and how you can help cultivate a team that is empathic and humble.
