04 Invite Promote
Assignment. Invite others to take part in the next training Cohorts.
Part of building a culture of empathy is to invite others to take part in an Empathy Circle you host.
Another part is to invite others to take part in the Empathy Circle Facilitator Training to be able to facilitate their own Empathy Circles. Your assignment during the training is to try and invite another person to take part in the next training cohort.
Here are some steps to take:
1. ( ) Personally Invite Your Friends
Personally share with your friends how much you enjoyed and learned from taking the training. Invite them to take part.
Send them an email with the signup information.
