The Power of Empathy in Conflict Resolution

The Power of Empathy in Conflict Resolution | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

Empathy has a profound ability to transform the way in which we resolve and understand conflicts. Empathy enables individuals to open their hearts and minds to not only see and understand the world from the perspective of others, but also to act in a way that is more likely to lead to a peaceful solution. In order to better understand empathy and its impact on conflict resolution, this paper will first address conflict, then empathy, how the two relate to one another, and finally, the essential nature of empathy in conflict resolution.

Lack Of Empathy May Be Caused By Social Stress, Lack Of Interaction With Strangers

Lack Of Empathy May Be Caused By Social Stress, Lack Of Interaction With Strangers | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

By Susan Scutti

 

The social stress we feel when we are with strangers limits our ability to express empathy.

 

Empathy — the capacity to share and feel another’s emotions — is known to be mostly absent in people with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and so, increasingly, scientists study this unique emotion to understand its genesis and effects. New research that directly explores how empathy arises between strangers comes to a surprising conclusion. The social stress we feel when we are with strangers, say the McGill University researchers, is what shuts down our ability to express empathy.

 

“It turns out that even a shared experience that is as superficial as playing a video game together can move people from the ‘stranger zone’ to the ‘friend zone’ and generate meaningful levels of empathy,” Dr. Jeffrey Mogil, a psychology professor and senior author of the study, stated in a press release.

The following is a partial distillation of ideas my colleague and I have more fully exposed in The Anger Fallacy. They're in no special order, except perhaps in as much as the first should probably come first. Some, admittedly, only touched on here, may require some unpacking (in particular 6, 7 and 8); but for those of you who cannot access the book, I'm happy to answer questions and to respond to comments!

(From the article):  Trust is a very evocative word in the business world. It means different things to different people, depending on their gender, ethnicity, culture, background and geography.  Corporate behaviour is definitely under the microscope with widespread perception of a disconnect between corporate behaviour and ethical conduct.  In this climate, it would be very easy to jump to measurement and greater legal requirements.  Whilst issues such as compliance are a vital aspect of good governance, recent research published by Roger Steare and colleagues indicates a strong relationship between ethical leadership and performance as well as ethics being key to employee engagement. 


Clearly, there is a need to go back to basics to define what ethical behaviour means both for the individual and the organisation.  Those organisations that have travelled this route have benefited from creating a ‘speak-up’ culture; confidence in the market as well as commitment from employees who buy-into the idea that ‘good thinking = good business’.

Leading with integrity is all about doing the right thing for yourself and the company.  There is no leadership without it.

Rehabilitating your Troublemakers. Corporate leaders may worry that Rebels at Work will create gangs of rebellious employees (cue Les Miserables). But the reality is rebels are already inside your corporate gates and increasingly unhappy. Many of them have the potential to become positive forces for your organization — to become good rebels. For that to happen, however, employees need different skills and managers need more effective ways of managing individuals who think differently.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 14, 8:08 PM

But rebelling is not just about rebelling. It is about changing the way things are done and the paradigm within which it is done. Retaining neo-colonial and patriarchal ways does not change anything.

Rebels who still understand the vision of the organization and find new ways to stir the pot and innovative approaches to achieving the objectives are needed in every organization.
