This week we hosted a virtual community gathering to discuss the power of Empathy.
Empathy is not “soft.” It is courageous, skillful, and wise to quickly comprehend the world of another and all influence depends on it. As a leader, it really is your job to care and create that connection with people, unlocking their contribution and paving the way for great work to be done in a vital and engaged community.
Throughout the conversation, Conversant colleagues Carolyn French, Anne Murray Allen and Mickey Connolly shared their thoughts on the power of Empathy, from our basic biological drives to the profound opportunities it creates in our personal and professional relationships. They share personal examples of Empathy in action as well as practical applications and practices we can take on to employ and increase Empathy in our communities.
