Empathetic Leadership

A New Cohort Experience From Ei & Creative Mornings

No matter how you look at it, we're in a crisis of leadership. When leaders focus on the bottom line above all else, teams become burned out, employees leave, and the company suffers. But there is an antidote antidote: Empathy

Believe. Belong. Become: A Roadmap for Empathetic Leaders is a 4-part learning program that will equip you with the tools and skills to become a more empathetic and effective leader. Through interactive workshops and small-group coaching, you'll learn how to establish a personal north star to guide your work, build trust and foster connection, and inspire others to achieve their full potential.

2-hr workshop introducing the elements of empathetic leadership

Join like-minded peers and world-class facilitators to explore three ingredients of empathetic leadership: Believe, Belong, and Become. Set a leadership growth goal to implement in your life and work for the next month. Don’t worry, if you’ve taken an Empathetic Leadership workshop with Ei before, this one will feel fresh.

Two 30-min small-group coaching sessions

Create a plan to execute on your leadership goal and gain advice from an experienced coach and peers committed to leveling-up in a similar way. Over the course of the program, lean on your peer network for accountability and navigate shared challenges together. Community is at the heart of the Ei learning model.

1-hr closing session

Alongside your new community of empathetic leaders, cement your learnings, celebrate your accomplishments, and commit to continued growth. After all, the believe, belong, become journey continues long after the course ends.

Step 3: Crack open your city guide and plan an adventure.

Executives, managers, soon-to-be managers, or anyone leading others, even if your title doesn’t imply it.

The upcoming cohort will run April 18-May 18, 2023

  • Kickoff Workshop: April 18th: 6:00 EST
  • Coaching Session 1: April 25-27
  • Coaching Session 2: May 9-11

Ei learning programs usually cost between $750 and $1,500 per person. We've discounted the program to $500 all-in this time as we’re still running in beta. For those who need additional financial assistance to participate, there’s a 50%, no-questions-asked reduced rate (code: FRIEND). And if you need further assistance, just reach out–we have a few full scholarship seats reserved and we’d love to have you.

A $50 deposit secures your place in the course and will be fully returned if fewer than 15 participants enroll.

Can I get reimbursed by my employer for the course?

  • Yes. We’re all for organizations supporting their employees’ professional development. If your organization doesn’t already offer this opportunity, we’re glad to help you make the case.

Does my timezone matter? Are sessions recorded?

  • TBD

Is there a refund policy?

  • Yes. Like any Ei program, we want you to be 100% satisfied with the experience. And, since this program is still in its relative infancy, it’s even more important to us that you can enter risk-free. If you’re not happy with the course for any reason, we’ll refund you 100% of the cost.
