Keynote
Empathy Dojo - 4 Postures for Mindful Communication

 

Develop the capacity to empathize instead of react. In this game, participants apply a simple kinesthetic process based on four physical postures to translate a triggering criticism into constructive dialogue. Teams will spar by testing how quickly they can extinguish a verbal fireball with empathy instead of making a "career-limiting reaction." By playing this game, participants learn to speak free of blame and judgment and reveal the deeper human needs that drive our behavior. This technique is based on Nonviolent Communication (NVC), a set of principles and practices that promote empathy, inclusion, collaboration and innovation.
