Publisher's Summary

Michael Ventura, entrepreneur and CEO of award-winning strategy and design practice Sub Rosa, shares how empathy - the ability to see the world through someone else's eyes - could be what your business needs to innovate, connect and grow.

Having built his career working with iconic brands and institutions such as Google and Nike, and also The United Nations and the Obama Administration, Michael Ventura offers entrepreneurs and executives a radical new business book and way forward.

Empathy is not about being nice. It's not about pity or sympathy either. It's about understanding - your consumers, your colleagues, and yourself - and it's a direct path to powerful leadership. As such, Applied Empathy presents real strategies on how to make lasting connections and evolve your business internally as well as externally.

This groundbreaking guide lays the foundation to establish a diverse, inventive and driven team that can meet the challenges of today's ever-evolving marketplace. If you want to connect to the people you work with and for, you first have to understand them.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Action taking insight on your development

Great book for all who want to deepen understanding of leadership, communication and who want to grow.

The autor describes his situations where he applied empathy. These stories are great overwiev for understanding of what empathy is and what can be done with it but the real magic is in exercises chapters where you make empathy happen.

Poor content and delivery

Only read the first quarter of the book but struggled with very poor content and delivery - which was probably exacerbated by the content. Not recommended
