Have you, or someone in your team, ever say “Soft skills don’t matter to me, I am technical!”? Have you been frustrated by ‘the sales people’ or ‘the IT department’? No matter how good your technical skills are, you always seem to be at odds with the world? Your human skills will be the problem. Empathy is a core learnable skill for modern technologists who want to be truly effective.
In “Data: A Guide To Humans,” Phil and Noelia explore the important human skill of empathy and unpack how this skill directly affects your technical work.
In this talk they will walk you through the core topics: * Real world examples of human failures in empathy – from technology and Artificial Intelligence – to our impact on the planet, other forms of life and climate change * How empathy forms the basis of solutions – a clear, learnable model of empathy you can use and apply now.
