The key to success is Empathy

Being able to listen, understand and relate to each other might have a greater affect on team effectiveness than the technical skill of individuals.

While there are screeds of information on how to upskill in technical languages and skills, the keys to developing empathy and teamwork are often less of a focus in learning to become a developer, even though it is so crucial to success in a real-world tech career.

Dev Academy makes teaching empathy, interpersonal and teamwork skills a priority, and that’s why our graduates come out of the programme as well-rounded tech professionals.

Our friends at Dev Bootcamp, our sister school in San Francisco, have recently written on the subject, and include a number of techniques to start developing your own empathy. Check out the article here: The Surprising and Non-Technical Skill You Need to Succeed in Tech.
