From workshops to guided discussions to live trainings,
Communilogue has your organization covered.
Communilogue helps businesses transform cultures by facilitating conversations around real-world empathy as it relates to communication, collaboration and inclusion.
Since 2015, we have led dialogues around empathy at work at companies, conferences, workshops and events around the world. We specialize in facilitating guided discussions that help individuals and teams engage empathy to the benefit of the organization as a whole. Our experiential in-house breakouts are designed to help your teams engage empathy; they create the platform for teams to speak openly and honestly about inclusion, race, gender and empathy at work. Each breakout is designed specifically for individual company’s needs. For more information, contact Sharon for more information.
Here are just a few of the workshops Communilogue can facilitate for your company. Workshops are customized to each company’s needs, and can range anywhere from 60 minutes up to a half day.
Fostering inclusion with empathy
The workforce is more diverse than ever, yet the way we interact with each other doesn’t always reflect these ethnic and cultural differences. Navigating a world where we must constantly engage emotions, opinions and ideas that we don’t always understand or agree with doesn’t have to be impossible. In fact it can be greatly beneficial to team productivity, innovation, creativity and overall company success. The result of this breakout will be teams that know how to create, build and maintain a culture of inclusion through everyday empathy actions.
Communicating with empathy
Based off of Sharon Steed’s LinkedIn Learning course, this breakout puts individuals in the mindset necessary learn how to communicate empathetically. Exercises are centered around exchanging “sympathy language” in favor of “empathy language,” and group discussions explore how to approach every interaction - especially difficult ones - from a place of empathy. The result of this breakout is that individuals can be more confident communicators and teams more effective collaborators.
Race, gender and empathy
Let’s face it: talking about gender is an uncomfortable conversation for most people. And race? Downright terrifying! When it comes to these topics, people only see barriers and leads to feelings of confusion, discouragement and frustration. But those that are able to think and talk about these difficult issues without bias or judgement can form deep, lasting relationships with stakeholders within and outside of the company bounds. The result of this breakout will be individuals that feel more comfortable and confident having difficult conversations, especially about race and gender.
Engaging empathy on remote teams
The way we work has changed, yet our basic needs as humans - specifically, our desire to interact with others and be engaged by others - remains steady. This breakout is designed for teams that aren’t always together, because those teams have a different set of needs in order to truly feel like a unit. Our core focus in this breakout will be on communicating effectively in spite of the great distances among everyone and engaging genuine empathy through the barriers of remote work.
