“Empathy by Design” is an online studio where we learn to design empathic interactions and organizations. It is a support structure for leaders who care deeply about their commitments to the people they serve, and yet feel stuck in a vicious cycle of frustration trying to bring about change & innovation in their organization.

    About the studio


    When faced with challenging human interactions, our typical approach is to look at it as a problem to be solved.

    For example,...

Focus on Empathy


This program is being offered at a time when you’re hearing a lot about the word empathy. They say that empathy is “important.” But you’re wondering “How so? How does it work? What are its limits? How do I apply it? Is it something I can actually work on?” This program will help you and your fellow participants work together to find the answer to all those questions and more. Most importantly, you will get to tailor the answers to your situation.

Program Tuition


The tuition for the program is USD 3,000 per person for a 3 month term.

In many cases, your company will reimburse you if you ask the HR department.
