Daily Empathy Post #1893 (Oct 15) Purposeful Empathy"It is hard to imagine that empathy—a characteristic so basic to the human species that it emerges early in life, and is accompanied by strong physiological reactions—came into existence only when our lineage split off from that of the apes. It must be far older than that. Examples of empathy in other animals would suggest a long evolutionary history to this capacity in humans."Article sourced from The Greater Good Science CenterPhoto by Margaux Ansel on Unsplash ...

Daily Empathy Post #1892 (Oct 14) Purposeful Empathy"In order to teach empathy, you must acknowledge your child's feelings, behavior and help them understand how to express them. An empathetic child grows into an empathetic adult who is able to get along with a large variety of people and many different personality types."Article sourced from Moms United - Moms.comPhoto by Kelli McClintock on Unsplash ...

Daily Empathy Post #1891 (Oct 13) Purposeful Empathy"Taylor's primary message was to set forth the path HR professionals must take to continue to bring their companies out of the debilitating pandemic environment.'Sometimes these days, it seems as if empathy and compassion are dwindling resources, but they are our best weapon against cynicism and despair,' Taylor said. 'In fact, empathy and compassion are our only truly renewable resources.'All of us here today have the means and obligation to tap this endless capacity in ourselves, in our workforce and in our society. We must use what we learned over the past 18 months and nurture the empathy to create a more just, equitable and sustainable workplace.'"Article sourced from Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)Photo by Adomas Aleno on Unsplash ...

Daily Empathy Post #1890 (Oct 12) Purposeful Empathy"The challenging events of the last year have served to remind us yet again: it's people who drive the business, not the other way around. When the pandemic upended traditional business models, we all saw organizations find new, creative ways to adapt and survive (if not thrive), first and foremost by listening to, and valuing their employees as critical partners and stakeholders.Succeeding in a pandemic is not an either-or proposition. It's a nuanced trial-and-error process grounded in empathy, driven by commitment, and measured by engagement. I feel sure that if we continue to lean in on the 'people' side of business, the business results will almost always follow."Article sourced from Inc. MagazinePhoto by Marvin Meyer on Unsplash ...

Daily Empathy Post #1889 (Oct 11) Purposeful Empathy"We’re literally preparing the next generation to steward humanity forward. One of the best things we can do for them, collectively, is to give them the gift of considering others — while maintaining their own boundaries. Imagine living in a world where, instead of wealth, power, and clout, emotional intelligence reigned as the most desirable human trait. That’s a world I definitely want to live in."
