The Unrealized Dream: Empathy & The Future of Creative Leadership
We constantly hear about empathy and how important it is for creative managers and thought leaders. But what is empathy, exactly? How do we cultivate it? Why is it so important to our future as tech and creative managers? Join with Greg as he defines, demystifies, and deconstructs empathy on a guided, whimsical tour of this misunderstood mindset. Greg will set aside design clichés and buzzwords in an attempt to explain why empathy is the most critical skill to the future of creative leadership and how you can use it to help grow your company. This is not design thinking. This is how to design thinking.
