    Please join us for our Free September Technical Meeting!

    Empathy is the ability to identify and experience the emotions of another and is one domain of emotional intelligence. Empathetic leaders develop a clear understanding of their emotional processes as well as the emotional processes of their team members. This leads to making conscious choices that lead to better outcomes for all and even improved success rates. One way to develop empathy is through mindfulness-based practices. According to Amy McCae, “So much of what an IH professional does starts from empathy and compassion. Communicating about science with employees at all levels of the organization requires skills in communication, leadership, collaboration, teamwork, negotiation, and listening. Emotional intelligence and mindfulness will help prepare you to deal with the technical aspects of the job.”

    Amy McCae helps industry leaders to reduce stress and overwhelm so they can have clarity, confidence, and peace of mind as well as more time for fun, family, and themselves. Amy founded Creative Wellness after spending nearly a decade ill with chronic illnesses and finally found healing through fitness, nutrition, and meditation. She now holds 17 certifications related to personal and professional development and mind body wellness. At the heart of all her work is a passion to ensure people live with purpose, align with their values, and that they thrive personally and professionally.
