Empathic Workplace Investigations

The Future of Workplace Investigations

Everyone assumes an investigator will be judgement free, but we teach how to make that a reality using empathy. And story telling is the way to invoke empathy in a situation. We teach you and your team the techniques that allow the accuser, the accused and witnesses to all feel heard. feel respected and view the process as fair.

Our Empathic Training Programs Address The Concerns of All Parties in an Investigation:

The Accused, Accuser and Witnesses.


We teach investigators, human resource professionals and managers how to use empathy at the forefront of planning, conducting and documenting a workplace investigation.

Workplace Culture is built in everyday moments, and tested during the difficult ones.

Workplace investigations are some of the most difficult conversations in business. The way we treat people during these conversations could be the difference between a peaceful departure or workplace conflict.

The Empathic Investigations Training programs are designed to ensure that participants can apply the learning in the workplace immediately.
