«Empathy comes with practice« – Patti Sanchez

Isra writes and edits, and publishes IG team – A few months ago, I interviewed Nancy Duarte on the Disrupt Everything podcast, a phenomenal conversation about empathy, leadership, communication, persuasion and making a positive impact through advertising and stories, in addition to knowing the incredible human being that Nancy is. Later, in some emails we exchanged, I asked her who she would recommend I interview in future episodes, “Patti Sanchez” was her answer.

So I began investigating and found another disruptor and a great leader to interview and deconstruct to extract what has led her to be who she is and where she is.
