We are a strategic business partner and resource for your leadership team.
We're in incendiary situations today, both at work and in society. Meaningful, culture-building conversations are about things that really matter; and sometimes result in hostility. You cannot side-step it...It's part of being in business and you'll have a dead workforce without these types of conversations. People lose sleep over holding dialogues on hot topics, yet humans yearn for authenticity. Real discussions often give way to innovation, and collaboration far beyond what you ever thought possible; to deliver results you never would have imagined.
Use these ideas and strategies in...

- Marketing Work
- Talent 1:1's
- Board Reviews
- Daily Life
Tactical Empathy wasn't developed in a sterile lab; it came into real life with situations as impossible as hostage negotiators being able to get hostages released, by an African-American man being able to have dozens of KKK Grand Wizards surrender their ideology in return for true friendship, and in salespeople closing on deals which left their customers satisfied to pay more than they wanted.
Tactical Empathy is a technique that gets your employees to understand the other person’s perspective to get where they want. It leaves both parties to feel heard, understood, and respected.
Tactical Empathy is designed as an interactive Zoom-led, 5-part series of 1-hour modules that build upon one another to prepare your employees to practice for future effective conversations, instead of feeling guilty about the past.
Tactical Empathy Live Zoom Workshop includes:
• 2 Facilitators
• Five 1-hour modules, Monday – Friday
• Interactivity and Breakout Rooms
• 40-page Downloadable Workbook
• Self-Assessment Tool
Take a productive approach that allows difficult conversations to happen. The Tactical Empathy methodology allows it to happen.
