In this episode, Cat and Andy explain and emphasize the importance of connecting to the human element. In the day to day tasks of consultants or people who work in a system, it is easy to get so focused on the processes and different items within the system and lose sight of its effect on people’s lives directly or indirectly.


Listen in now and understand the impact of being able to apply empathy as we work on being better in our professional endeavors.




“Even The Very Way We Communicate Will Determine How Attached Or Detached You Are From The Human Element.”


“The Ultimate Purpose For All Of Us To Be Here Is To Add Value.”


“What Drives Us All As Humans Are Relatability And Emotions.”
