Daily Empathy Post #1811 (July 25) Purposeful Empathy“After majoring in law, I shocked everyone when after 4 years of hard work, gave up a promising career as a lawyer to get a second degree in an unrelated field – Art History. The drastic change was due to art being a universal language. It speaks to us on an emotional level, often comprehended cross-culturally. In addition, in our globalized world, intercultural abilities are becoming increasingly important. Art is a form of non-verbal communication, which connects us with different cultures, even past times. When we exchange mere facts, understanding happens on a rational level. Throw in art, and you will see compassion and empathy blossom – which are keys to wholesome human interactions.”Article sourced from The Daily Star ... See MoreSee Less

Daily Empathy Post #1810 (July 24) Purposeful Empathy"Empathy depends on your ability to overcome your own perspective, appreciate someone else’s, and step into their shoes. Self-control is essentially the same skill, except that those other shoes belong to your future self—a removed and hypothetical entity who might as well be a different person. So think of self-control as a kind of temporal selflessness. It’s Present You taking a hit to help out Future You."Article sourced from The Atlantic ... See MoreSee Less

Daily Empathy Post #1808 (July 23) Purposeful Empathy"Empathy is often described as 'putting yourself in someone else's shoes.' To do that, though, means having the vulnerability to take your own shoes off first. Engage with people different from yourself. Make learning about others' experiences a lifelong journey. Choose your words carefully, making sure you acknowledge the situation, share how you feel, express gratitude, and show support. And be willing to accept vulnerability as a personal strength that can strengthen others, too."Article sourced from Inc. Magazine ... See MoreSee Less

"Entrenching a culture of empathy in a large organization needs to start from the top. The leaders need to live those values, buy into them and uproot any behavior that is in contradiction with those values."
