Leadership Is Stewardship

Leadership Is Stewardship | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The rapid pace we maintain throughout the year too often prevents us from fully grasping what runs through our eyes and into our brains. We cannot fully digest what our actions mean to others in the rapid pace of our world. And as a leader, the consequences are adding up. Do you know what that holds for you and those you lead?

When Empathy Hurts, Compassion Can Heal

When Empathy Hurts, Compassion Can Heal | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
A new neuroscientific study shows that compassion training can help us cope with other people's distress.

Empathy can be painful.

Or so suggests a growing body of neuroscientific research. When we witness suffering and distress in others, our natural tendency to empathize can bring us vicarious pain.

 

Is there a better way of approaching distress in other people? A recent study, published in the journal Cerebral Cortex, suggests that we can better cope with others’ negative emotions by strengthening our own compassion skills, which the researchers define as “feeling concern for another’s suffering and desiring to enhance that individual’s welfare.”

 

“Empathy is really important for understanding others’ emotions very deeply, but there is a downside of empathy when it comes to the suffering of others,” says Olga Klimecki, a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Germany and the lead author of the study. “When we share the suffering of others too much, our negative emotions increase. It carries the danger of an emotional burnout.”

The Fearless Heart: Empathy and Authenticity in the Workplace (part 1 of 3)

The Fearless Heart: Empathy and Authenticity in the Workplace (part 1 of 3) | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

by Miki Kashtan

When I talk with people about Nonviolent Communication and about empathy and authenticity, I often hear skepticism in the form of “Yes, but what about_______.” Frequent candidates for filling in the blank are teenagers that don’t respond to anything; Hitler; very angry people; and workplace situations. It seems many of us are habituated to thinking that empathy and authenticity belong only in some contexts and not others. Today I want to look at the workplace context, because so many of us are at work more of our awake time than anywhere else.

Can Connection and Effectiveness Coexist?
On the surface, it appears that the time it would take to reach mutual understanding and collaboration would detract from task-oriented focus, thus taking away from productivity and efficient decision-making. On closer look, I see at least three ways in which connection could enhance effectiveness. First, people who are heard and understood, have more goodwill to contribute. Second, people who are often operating within the fear and discomfort arising from conflict and mistrust literally have less of themselves available to produce. Lastly, when decisions and agreements are based on true connection and mutual understanding, such that “yes” is really a “yes,” people are much less likely to back out of what they said they would do.

Love in the workplace can be as simple as setting aside time to engage in deep listening. It means setting aside time where there are no interruptions and listening to what the other person has to say, without interruption and without jumping in with whatever you want to say. It involves being empathetic and listening beyond the words.

Service Design Soft Skill Builder: Empathy - Adaptive Path

Service Design Soft Skill Builder: Empathy - Adaptive Path | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

I have been reflecting on my own empathy lately and exploring how it can be cultivated. Below are four methods that I or others have found help build and strengthen empathy. I hope you will try some of these and report back if they have made a difference in your personal practice and your organization's success.

 

1. Read stories which emotionally transport you
I often cite my humanities training in general and my BA in English Literature specifically as playing the most crucial role in the development of my personal practice. I've been pleased to see some research recently that puts some data behind what my gut has been telling me. It turns out, reading fiction builds empathetic skill...

 

2. Practice listening...
Empathic listening is the synthesis of relaxation, focus, and the desire to learn. Frequent and consistent empathic listening is a skill very few people master. My advice: carve out a little time each day to build your fundamentals...


3. Take an improv class...

“When it comes down to it, [improv] is mostly about building trust among a group of performers. Trust grows through acknowledging the discomfort, establishing and enforcing ground rules, and engaging in an activity together…. Most of improv rehearsal time focuses on creating trust–helping individuals become more focused and empathetic, and providing the group members opportunities to build rapport… In this context, empathy, the capability to understand, identify with, and care for others [is critical to increase trust].”

 

4. Be an empathic adventurist...

Being an empathic adventurist is about deliberately getting out of your daily haunts, out of your comfort zone, and into the lives of others that broaden and deepen your understanding of people and the way they look at the world....

One of the facts of life is that we will probably have to deal with more failure in our lives than successes. It’s more likely that we will fail the first time we try something new than we will be successful.

It’s how we handle that failure that determines ultimately how successful we will be.
