What is the Empathy Paradigm?
The Empathy Paradigm is a philosophy and leadership strategy that believes empathy is a skill that anyone can learn and grow. Research shows that meaningful relationships and psychological safety are built on a foundation of empathy, so we approach all of our training, coaching, and consulting through the lens of intentional empathy. We teach this essential skill using our signature Empathy Equation and offer practical ways to use curiosity and non-judgment to build healthier personal and professional relationships.
What is the Empathy Equation?
Our signature Empathy Equation is a simple formula that can help anyone access and grow their empathy for someone else. Being curious about someone’s identity, past experiences, and current circumstances allows us to understand why they are thinking, feeling, and acting the way they are even if we don’t agree with them. This understanding is the first step toward building connection and respect despite our differences.
The Empathy Paradigm empowers individuals, communities and corporations to embrace and understand emotional intelligence, inclusivity, wellness and growth through affordable and accessible empathy-based training and coaching.
We envision a culture of empathy where our interpretation of the world around us is driven by a desire to understand and connect with the experiences of others through curiosity, vulnerability, and intentionality.
We believe in the equal value of all humans and our social responsibility to advocate for one another. Through education and training, we seek to empower all individuals to experience authentic connections, choose their own beliefs and values, and explore and express their unique identities.
