Cohort 9B: Assignment. Invite others to take part in the next training Cohort 9C


Here is more about taking part in the next training Cohort and how to invite others.

Part of deepening your empathy skills and building a Culture of Empathy is to invite others to take part in an Empathy Circle you host.

Another part is to invite people to take part in the Empathy Circle Facilitator Training so they will be able to facilitate their own Empathy Circles. One assignment during the training is to try and invite another person to take part in the next training Cohort.
