EMPATHY: What is it, anyway?

EMPATHY: What is it, anyway? | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

The Center for Creative Leadership did a study with data from 6,731 managers from 38 countries. Their study found that the ability to understand what others are feeling is a skill that clearly contributes to effective leadership. In some cultures, the connection between empathy and performance is particularly striking, placing an even greater value on empathy as a leadership skill.

 

The findings were consistent across the sample: empathy is positively related to job performance. Managers who show more empathy toward direct reports are viewed as better performers in their job by their bosses.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

What I found most endearing in this post were the definitions of empathy written by second graders. They explained it beautifully.

The author concludes then that "if you can practice empathy at least at the level these second graders describe it, you'll be a great leader".

Authoritative confirmation!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 30, 2013 10:27 AM

In the article there is a reference to teaching and explaining empathy. It is something we need to model and demonstrate. It cannot be reduced to a simple cognitive exercise.

Florentine van Thiel's curator insight, May 31, 2013 3:30 AM

La capacité à comprendre les sentiments des autres est une compétence qui contribue clairement à un leadership efficace.

For Better Conversations, Replace 'How Are You?' With This One Phrase | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
If you want to connect with people, you have to let them know you're listening. Here's how.
Ariana Amorim's insight:
Whitmore recommends going beyond the simple "How are you?" to ask open-ended questions that warrant more than a one-word response. The phrase she likes most: "Tell me." (Some examples: "Tell me about your weekend" or "Tell me, how did the two of you meet?")."Anytime you start a sentence with 'tell me,' it launches into scintillating conversation"

The Power of a Compelling Vision for the Client and the Coach 

The Power of a Compelling Vision for the Client and the Coach  | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

In coaching, I define vision as the ability to see or imagine a place different and more compelling than the one the client is currently in. A true compelling vision is not static or stationary. Rather, it is powerful and dynamic; it often stirs one up and incites movement, engagement and deep agreement on the inside. In fact, a compelling vision is like a bridge one can cross over to get to the place where they are able to define goals and create actions.

As coaches, we have our #1 “Power Tool,” which is our ability to craft open-ended questions that allow our coaching client to dig deeper into their self-knowledge for what they already know, believe or feel about something they are exploring.

However, there is another “Power Tool” we have as coaches, which is the power of offering observations. We have a unique relationship perspective to our coaching client because we are able to offer a neutral, unbiased viewpoint to the client, for their consideration.
