About Global Empathy

Global Empathy’s goal and purpose are to use a holistic approach to professional development training to build a more empathetic society. We offer consulting and training that introduces topics designed to help restore wellbeing in a traumatic era of civil unrest, in addition to redefining the landscape of 21st-century leadership. The operational, tactical, and strategic training models include topics of instruction on positive psychology, leadership, empathy, social equity, antiracism, conflict management, and restorative practice.

Our courses are empirically established and supported to help professionals build cultural competencies for global citizenship. The curriculum employs authentic, virtuous, and ethical leadership themes to face challenges as a life-long learning practice.

Our training is designed to help individuals practice empathy, build self-awareness, and demolish systems that cause harm.  Awareness becomes developed through listening, investigating, analyzing, reflecting, and communicating using the “ABC’s & 123’s Global Empathy Framework”. The emphasis explores leadership through a holistic lens to help individuals practice empathy. Global Empathy partners with subject-matter experts in conflict management, DEIB, education, and change management, to support our efforts.

Our Approach to Training and Learning Development

Global Empathy Training Academy (GETA) delivers customized training around the most difficult challenges that organizations face in organizational culture. Our main goal is to provide training to strengthen cultural competencies through empathy. We build curricula that draw from a plethora of scholarly research and expert practitioners to address sensitive topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. GETA is approved by American Psychological Association (APA) to provide continuing education for licensed professionals. Our courses are peer-reviewed and vetted through the rigorous standards and criteria of APA.

The Methodology Approach to Consulting

We employ a qualitative research design, with a phenomenological methodology, during our consultation with clients. Qualitative research will gather, analyze, and interpret information from individuals or groups. A phenomenological methodology allows us to gain an understanding and construct the meaning of information. We guide our actions from a constructivist and transformative philosophical worldview. Through constructivism, we seek understanding from multiple participants and look at the complexity of opinions. Through a transformative lens, we decipher information that is intersectional with oppressive policies, practices, and causing harm to humanity. This approach gives participants a voice, raises consciousness, and/or advances an agenda for leadership development. We interpret the essence of these experiences to gain new knowledge, findings and offer suggestions to strengthen training modules.

Our Approach to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

The research substantiates that organizations with cultural diversity significantly exceed in performance against groups who are culturally homogenous. More and more organizations realize the mutual benefits of having a DEIB workforce. It is umbilical to business. Our DEIB Framework is guided by a collaborative focus; with a lens on the objectives of intention and the outcomes of effort as shown below.
