Surprisingly, the most important skill for any leader to lead in times of extreme uncertainty is exactly the same, that is needed to have a good family life – self-differentiation (the ability to be connected yet separate). 

One big obstacle in being properly differentiated is pseudo-empathy, resulting in explosions of collective anxiety, where one person ignites the whole organization – like falling dominoes.
But now comes the good part – it takes few well-differentiated people to effectively manage emotional field of the whole organization.

In this webinar you will learn to consciously separate between real empathy and pseudo-empathy. Understand, why the leaders non-anxious presence is important skill in todays environment. And we also give some guidelines for how to increase your own capacity to be non-anxiously present

Leader, this webinar is for you, when:

  • You see that anxiety in your organization is not converting into motivation to try harder, but into destructive thoughts or behaviors instead.
  • You see that your employees intense emotions and anxiety have started to impact you.
  • You find it difficult to cope with all the emotional people around you.
  • You notice that your own anxiety starts to impact your decision-making more than you’d want it to.
  • You battle emotional dominoes in your organization – one small negative change resulting in an “explosion” of negativity.
  • Someone’s destructive behavior makes you angry and thinking about firing the person.
  • You feel you need to be in charge and there is pressure to be the one with all the answers. And that is killing you.

In this 60-minute webinar you’ll learn:

  • How to consciously separate between empathy and pseudo-empathy (reactive behaviour, that is often mistakenly considered as empathy).
  • How empathy is often a disguise for anxiety.
  • How to substitute pseudo-empathy with a healthy alternative - self-differentiation - and really help your organization and/or family cope with difficult situations.
