Is There Room for Empathy in Heavy Industry?

Asset Stage
Day 01

Of all the complexities within our modern workplaces driven by uncertainty, globalisation and technology, the most challenging factor in driving and sustaining performance remains leading people. There are few things that derail a project or expose an organisation to risk more than unmotivated or disengaged employees. Building high-performing teams require great strategies and engaging people leaders. Leaders who build trust, provide effective feedback, and are able to create a committed team focused on shared outcomes. The key to building these high-performing teams is empathic leadership.

Daniel will provide simple frameworks, practical tactics, and specific examples of how everyone can lead with empathy to drive performance. Empathy is a skill that people of any age, from any industry, can learn, develop and harness to improve their leadership and performance. This presentation will provide clear steps for implementing new ways to lead with empathy.
