Brene Brown RSA Short Video on Empathy
At HeadFirst, we're big on connection. In this video, Brene Brown highlights the fact that connection is made through empathy, rather than sympathy. When we are able to step into someone else's shoes and experience the world from their eyes, we form a connection with that person.
Missing that connection? Click here to contact HeadFirst about working with one of our therapists to help you feel connected, understood, and accepted.
