About the Webinar

Do you feel disconnected from your team? Is the tension between team members, feelings of being siloed, or breakdowns in communication, adding to more stress on your plate? If you crave healthier relationships among the members of your team and community, want to create a sense of calm and well-being for yourself, and cultivate respect and compassion, then this session is for you. MIT Open Learning’s development team members will share strategies they practice, drawing on the work of systems design thinking and socioemotional learning, to cultivate compassion and understanding among their team. The benefits of this practice include: building more trust and patience within your team, increasing your sensitivity to each other, improving your listening skills, reducing stress, building an overall culture of respect, kindness, and interconnectedness–and ultimately a strong team.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Exercises to build respect, better listening, and patience with your team members
  2. Understand the underlying issues behind problematic situations and systems
  3. Introduce and practice compassion and empathy for a higher-performing team
