Daily Empathy Post #1992 (Jan 22) Purposeful Empathy"For founders or leaders within your organization, living an example that exemplifies empathy, kindness and compassion sets the foundation to challenge your teams. Challenging your teams to be accountable to interacting with each other with more compassion and kindness might breed a culture that executes well in hybrid work setting models. Combinined with reading on leadership based on empathy, seeing leaders inside your organization and your colleagues begin to practice these principles will help a resolution for 2022 to become a way of life in your business. Hybrid working models are causing leaders and businesses to rethink how they engage with each other. Empathy and kindness as a fabric woven through your company is even more critical now than in the past."Article sourced from EntrepreneurPicture sourced from Polina Tankilevitch on Pexels ...

Watch this episode to learn what neuroscience reveals about empathy. In this far-reaching conversation with neuroscientist Dr. Christian Keysers (who served as part of the team that discovered mirror neurons), this episode explores how even though our brains are biologically predisposed to empathy, on a daily basis, we are responsible for responding empathically or not. The implications of this - for relationships and society - are incredibly significant. 00:00 Introduction00:22 About Christian Keysers and his work01:38 A moving passage from Keysers’ book about the empathy he felt on his wedding day03:12 The discovery of mirror neurons06:28 How our brains operate differently than a computer08:21 What is empathy’s ego-centricity bias?11:39 Can we empathize with machines - and will they ever empathize with us?14:19 The risks and opportunities of empathic AI16:47 What neuroscience is revealing about interconnectedness22:58 The discovery and significance of “shared circuits”26:43 How Keysers’ scientific understanding of empathy has changed his relational behaviour31:02 How can we make empathy more habitual - and what are the benefits of doing so?35:59 How to overcome our empathy biases and become more inclusive43:08 The potential of psychedelics for empathy49:06 Christian Keysers’ Purposeful Empathy Story50:41 Conclusion The Empathic Brain: nin.nl/research/researchgroups/keysers-group/empathic-brain/CONNECT WITH CHRISTIAN ✩ LinkedIn: Christian Keysers CONNECT WITH ANITA✩ Email purposefulempathy@gmail.com ✩ Website www.anitanowak.com/ ✩ LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/anitanowak✩ Instagram tinyurl.com/anitanowakinstagram✩ Twitter twitter.com/anitanowak21✩ Facebook Page tinyurl.com/PurposefulEmpathyFacebook✩ Facebook Group tinyurl.com/PurposefulEmpathyCommunity✩ Podcast Audio tinyurl.com/PurposefulEmpathyPodcastThis episode was brought to you by Grand Heron International REACH THEM AT✩ Website www.grandheroninternational.ca; www.ghi.coach✩ LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/company/grand-heron-international/✩ Facebook www.facebook.com/grandheroninternational/✩ Instagram @Grand_Heron_International✩ Twitter @GrandHeronIntltwitter.com/GrandHeronIntlTo watch the video with subtitles: www.youtube.com/channel/UC78vaeHVmoxebZCYtqsKe0AVideo Edited by David Tsvariani ...
