Thank you to all the listeners who tuned in every Tuesday morning over breakfast with the inspiration to reconnect. Season 1 was a success, only because of you, Wonders! Thank you!

This season, we are connecting with guests from all over the globe to continue the conversation about connectivity, our mutual humanity and the deficit in empathy impacting our world. Join us every Tuesday for a new episode! So, make your decision, will you bring tea or coffee?! Tune in!

This week, I am thrilled to have an international keynote speaker, author, and founder of Communilogue, Sharon Steed. A lifelong stutterer, Sharon uses her speech impediment to teach what empathy is and inspire audiences to engage in empathy actions daily.

Our discussion focuses on the role that empathy plays in effective communication and negotiation. Sharon helps us understand the connection between empathy, culture, and community. The author of the EBook, Empathy at Work, believes that empathy has the power to foster inclusivity, improve performance, and optimise business outcomes. Tune in to this significant conversation and learn more about Sharon’s passion for empathy and its ability to transform company culture.
