Losing our Empathy and How to Get it Back

Recording: Losing our Empathy and How to Get it Back, Mar 11, 2019


From self-care to selfies, our modern and often me-centered culture is driving new trends and industries. But that self-focus comes at a societal cost. How is this “me-centered” perspective changing our ability to understand others? While we talk a great deal about the value of empathy, when it comes to putting it into practice we're missing the mark. BAV Group's Laura Jones will look at where things went wrong and how we can rebuild empathy into our businesses and communities. This session will dive into actionable empathy: understanding what it means and why it matters more than ever.
