Developing Empathy with Ryan from Twenty One Toys

Ryan joined us for a workshop to share his passion, humor, knowledge and his excitement about the Empathy Toy. Yes you heard us, the toy that teaches us empathy. Ryan led us through the importance of empathy in the workplace, common misconceptions and the positive impact that an empathetic workplace can have. 

The Empathy Toy from Twenty One Toys is a collaborative puzzle that can only be solved when the players clearly understand each other. Ryan led us through a practical and hands-on introduction to techniques for leveraging empathy as a team. The game had us all engaged as we collaborated and problem solved all while laughing, and of course, experiencing frustration.

Twenty One Toys has also recently launched the Failure toy - who new failure could be so fun! I definitely recommend a workshop by Ryan and Twenty One Toys in the future for those interested in speaking empathy and creativity all while building strong teams!
