"Sometimes we connect with people for reasons we don’t entirely understand," Ettore says. "That’s how I feel about my dear friend and brother Michael Tennant. I recognized from our first interaction that he is a special human with whom I felt a unique and immediate connection."
Michael is a CEO, a diversity and mental health advocate, a recognized empathy expert, and the creative mind behind the Actually Curious conversation card game.
"In full disclosure, life has gotten in the way over the past year, so Michael and I have not had as many opportunities to connect as I would have liked. This recording session could be considered a kind of hybrid: It’s not only a podcast interview but also our first extended conversation. Consider this a rare window into the unfolding of a beautiful new friendship."
Along the way, the men talk about Michael’s journey, showing up as our most vulnerable selves, “being where your feet are,” leadership, the Five Phases of Empathy, and so much more.
We hope you’ll enjoy sharing this intimate chat.
