Event description

Description

After 2 sold out workshops in 2018, we´re back with our introductory module of Compassionate Innovation, now also exploring the realms of compassionate leadership.


Do you want to make a difference in the lives of others by offering them new and better services?

Do you at times find it difficult to empathize with your users' ills without becoming emotionally overwhelmed or even burnt out?

In this workshop, you will learn highly practical tools to not only avoid empathy fatigue but to also become empowered to create innovative services and programs that radically improve the circumstances of your stakeholders—regardless of how difficult their situation might be.

In a hands-on, engaging, and safe environment, we will explore creative processes like design thinking and social innovation, along with contemplative practices such as mindfulness, compassion, and lovingkindness meditation.

Please visit our website page dedicated to Compassionate Innovation to find out more. We will be happy to answer your questions regarding the workshop. Please contact us using this form.
