International webinar addresses the power of empathy in KPIs
Main strategies and practices to leverage empathy in the work environment are the theme of an international webinar, “The International Power of Empathy to Improve KPIs,” to be held online on May 29. Organized by the International Masters Program for Managers (IMPM), the event will feature international speaker Dr. Anita Nowak of McGill University. The event is part of the McGill Leadership Impact Series, a sequence of free online webinars organized by IMPM, addressing subjects aimed at managers in a wide range of sectors.
During the meeting, Nowak, an empathy expert, author, award-winning educator and certified coach, will share key points from her latest book, “Purposeful Empathy: Tapping into our Hidden Superpower for Personal, Organizational and Social Change.” She will also discuss how to increase individual and organizational engagement, productivity, resilience, well-being, leadership, creativity and innovation, among other topics.
