Empathy through Acting

Individuals can only advance when they know they are valued, listened to, and understood. Without having lived the same life as them, it's often hard to understand why people do what they do. It requires empathy, and practicing empathy can be tough when someone differs greatly from you, personally or professionally. But, being empathetic can be learned, for instance through method acting.

Let's talk about the fascinating acting techniques of Stanislavski, Strasberg, Adler & Meisner, and learn how you too can employ the Method to better understand (and work with) the people in your life.

PS: These slides are probably useless without the talk ;-)
