Culture of Empathy Builder: Dani Rius


Mindful Empathy

The Mindset of Success for Leaders


Dani Rius is the lead author of Mindful Empathy: The Mindset of Success for Leaders. Dani spent 15+ years in the corporate training industry, many years teaching Business English worldwide, and in the past 5 years was developing in personal resilience and productivity, communication and leadership coaching.  As a child of diplomats she traveled widely.  She developed her empathy to adapt to many different environments. She grew up learning empathy for others, but realized she needed to develop self-empathy. She now develops self-empathy through mindfulness exercises.


"Without empathy, we cannot get into other people's shoes to understand where they are coming from when they say or do things we do not expect. However, how to develop empathy?"
