In the changing landscape of work, we’re seeing continuous advances in technology taking the place of traditional human jobs, increasing automation and efficiency across all industries.
As humans, we need to re-evaluate the role that we play in the workplace. To really stand out and thrive in this this fourth industrial revolution, we need to pay more attention to developing the skills that machines are unable to replicate: skills that are uniquely human. This workshop is part of a wider series which aims to unlock and strengthen these skills to better prepare you for the world of work.
Developing your ability to empathise will have a positive impact on your future employability. Empathy will help you to become a more effective communicator, negotiator, collaborator and leader. It’s a skill increasingly sought after by employers, as many recent reports show.
This Workshop explores how to step back from your own mental map, and apply the ‘triple perspective’ in order to effectively see things from different angles so that you remain confident and positive when working with others.
