Use empathy and humility as a leader to build your team culture.
Teams often have members from many different backgrounds, and leaders with empathy and humility are better able to bridge cultural divides and create a shared sense of community. Join us for a 1-hour discussion to strategize how to develop that sense of community on your team, regardless of each team member’s background. 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 empathy and humility can lead you to a better understanding of the different experiences of others. You’ll also discuss how fostering empathy and humility on your team will lead to a thriving team culture.
