It’s no secret that COVID-19 has had a massive impact on many of us and for some, the effects on their livelihoods, jobs, families and more have been beyond anything we could ever fathom. If anything, this is the time to learn and practice empathy not only for others but also yourself. Taking this a step further and seeking to educate the general public is Managing Director and regenerative leadership expert, Mimi Nicklin who has created a new online show called Empathy for Breakfast. In the midst of everything else happening, it’s also quite interesting to see how this has pushed individuals to become more innovative, this is one such example, a great one:
Above is the entire first episode of the brand new online breakfast show, the type that the world needs right now, and it airs every Tuesday morning at 8 AM. This innovative weekly show specifically designed for Covid times, will provide business leaders, marketers and communicators with a dose of insight, inspiration and practical knowledge that will empower them to navigate the week ahead with empathy.
For over fifteen years, Mimi has been working across the world to drive stand out creative interventions that lead to business and culture change. Driven by the pursuit of increasing the value and impact of regenerative leadership, she is committed to working with business leaders to transform workplaces into more valuable and sustainably healthy places. Mimi is also the host of the podcast Secrets of the Gap.
Based on the insight that people love to be read to, and so rarely get the chance in today’s always-on world, along with evidence that reading drives empathy upwards, the show opens with live coverage of a new book or content piece each week, read in real time. With a variety of content types, all that drive consideration of the power of empathy and emotional intelligence in the world and our workplace’s, Mimi’s unique ability to deliver this as a professional and as a people’s person is sure to build a following of loyal listeners. From fiction to leadership, and even some academia, the content is part contemplative and part consultative, and has been designed to offer everyone that tunes in food for thought!
“Never has there been a time when people are more open to the conversation about emotional intelligence, and never has there been an era when people need more shared empathy and connectivity with their teams than now” said Mimi. “I look forward to engaging with audiences in this new show and look forward to taking the empathy dialogue further” she concluded.
At a snappy 17 minutes long, Empathy for Breakfast is fast enough to fit into jam packed days and genuinely insightful, whilst being charmingly human and worthy of breakfast tables everywhere. Empathy for Breakfast is hosted online by Managing Director and regenerative leadership expert, Mimi Nicklin. Mimi is the Author of Softening the Edge (available August 2020).
