Frontline by Speakap is a community for progressive HR leaders to share (and learn) ideas and strategies for creating a thriving workplace, to therefore help all employees reach their full potential.
This is the fourth episode of our podcast series, which will feature a range of experts and industry leaders to discuss topics related to their individual expertise.
In this podcast we chat about how to practice empathy in the workplace and why it’s so important to feel emotional safety.
About Yves Groen
Yves is the co-founder of Loodens, a foundation dedicated to helping people and organizations restore and strengthen relationships by practicing empathic conversations. After thirteen years of leadership positions in organizations with a social purpose, he enjoys learning from the things that didn’t work in the past.
“Any conversation can be seen as comparing notes; you have a perspective, I have a perspective. With that intention, given you have received enough empathy… you can start rebuilding the trust”
