Well-being Series: Putting Ourselves In Someone Else's Shoes
It's common for us to have an innate desire to focus on ourselves. Yet, many of us have the capacity to move beyond our self-centred consciousness with a gift called empathy. It is when we begin to understand someone else's situations and share their joys and pains.
In this webinar, we will learn what it means to empathise, to put ourselves in someone else's shoes and most importantly, how to develop it to use it as a driver to form better relationships with and create better situations for the people around us.
Attendance of this webinar is FREE.
This session is part of our on-going Well-being Series Altruism organised by Happiness Initiative in partnership with National Youth Council.
So.. What Can You Takeaway From This?
1. Understand empathy and what are its benefits
2. Learn how to develop empathy
P.S. The Zoom link for this webinar would be given to you automatically upon registration.
