Numbers tell a story. What part do your employees play?

Are your employees nervous around numbers? Do they have difficulty reading sales reports or making accurate projections based on the data you provide? Math is a common pain point due to the Cycle of Benign Neglect. Students in school often avoid math and don’t feel comfortable working with numbers. Now in the workplace, the quantitative reasoning of employees could explain limited profits and success.

Compassionate Math is the idea that learning mathematics is both an intellectual and emotional challenge – you can’t move forward intellectually if you don’t address negative emotions. At Compassionate Math we understand how hard it is to go back and review the basics, how the past haunts many, and how fear, nervousness, and a discomfort with math can be professionally embarrassing. We can help remove emotional blocks, reduce math anxiety, and provide expertise to foster a supportive and rigorous math learning environment.
