How CCET can work with you

Do you need inspiring and long-lasting training sessions on incorporating empathy and emotional awareness to create

compassionate engagement, psychological safety and civility, and a just and learning culture?

Maybe you require an advisor to help you humanise your processes, improve customer experiences, or staff well-being?

Or, you are looking for that thought-provoking, motivational, human element to your conference?


Whichever you are looking for, CCET's Founder, Carolyn Cleveland can help you in person or virtually.


Using CCET's own LEED Communications Programme® (Learning Empathy & Emotional Development) Carolyn can work with you to meet your specific needs. Here, you will find an overview, but Carolyn's training is all about being human, so why not get in touch and speak to her in person. 

Training & Development

Training is normally delivered in-house, either in person, or virtually.

Please contact Carolyn to discuss your organisations requirements.

“I really enjoyed having Carolyn come in to present her own personal experience of empathy which resonated well with our teams. It was refreshing to not only hear from outside of our sector, but also from someone who lives and breathes the subject they are talking about. Our teams found the day valuable and took a lot away from the session to explore the role of empathy in their own areas.”
