Empathy is an essential skill for all collaboration, and is particularly important when that collaboration takes place online. Our Online Empathy Toy® Workshops are an opportunity to practice tangible skills for improving agility, resilience, communication, and collaboration, building understanding among your remote team members.

Delivered through video conference, these highly interactive sessions allow your team to play together with the Empathy Toy® from anywhere in the world. Through a series of expertly facilitated and laughter-filled games, you and your colleagues will come to better understand each other’s online collaboration style and identify tangible behaviours that will allow you to get the most out of your online interactions.
