Daniel Murray- Founder and Director of Empathic Consulting
Great Companies: Please tell me something about the business and how did you come up with such an idea? Daniel Murray: After years in strategy and management consulting, I saw far too many great strategies fail due to poor people leadership. As a mathematician myself, I realised that many people like me have strong analytical skills but lack the ability to deeply empathise and engage with others. I've studied and researched psychology, neuroscience and behavioural economics to develop simple, pragmatic tools that leaders can use to improve their empathy and drive performance through engaged people.
Great Companies: What are the various services and products provided by your company? Daniel Murray: Leadership Training, Executive Coaching, Professional Speaking including Webinars, Team Workshops. Great Companies: Why should one choose you over others in this field? Daniel Murray: I was frustrated with other programs. I found some companies focused too much on academic theory without practical skills that work in the business world. Others were full of motherhood statements without any substance. Empathic Consulting blends our deep experience in business strategy with a pragmatic and practical approach to emotional intelligence meaning leaders can apply skills and see results.
Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face? Daniel Murray: There are still too many businesses who fail to capture the true value of their people. Some are stuck in the old world of management and think empathy is all fluff. Being able to truly show the impact of our training is difficult until people have experienced it first hand. Great Companies: What do you think are the few main things which are most important for a successful business? Daniel Murray:
Curious and empathic leadership. A trusting and diverse culture. People who see their work as meaningful.
