Have you been told that you take criticism too personally? Do you judge yourself too harshly? We are taught to hide our emotions for fear of being perceived as “unprofessional.” But the truth is that the traits associated with highly sensitive individuals—empathy, self-awareness, critical thinking, communication, and intuition—are the “soft skills” that will be the most valuable in the workplace of the future.

In this deep-dive webinar, human behavior expert and executive coach Melody Wilding, LMSW, will draw on decades of research and offer neuroscience-based strategies that individuals and organizations can use to recognize sensitivity as a superpower, not a detriment. You will learn concrete steps to help what she calls “Sensitive Strivers” – empathetic, driven individuals—break free from stress, perfectionism, and self-doubt to use sensitivity as a strength, and work and lead effectively, now and in the future world of work.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
