There has never been a more important time to build a sense of connection and confidence within our people, customers, and communities. In a world dominated by uncertainty and suspicion, leaders must build trust and empower their people with authenticity and resilience. Empathy is a process that fosters trust, deepens understanding and creates an environment of psychological safety even amidst the storms of a chaotic world.

It is the behaviours of leaders in these challenging times that creates confidence. Leaders who are consciously curious and willing to challenge their own ways of seeing the world can unlock deeper connections and effect great change in themselves and others. With a mixture of simple strategies, emotive stories and interactive tools, Daniel unpacks the steps needed for everyone to become an empathic leader empowering connection through authenticity and a shared understanding.
