Empathy for Social Change

Empathy is not new to the toolkit of social change or education, and it continues to be a common trope of encouragement.

Ashoka, one of the globally pioneering institutions for social change, has the need for cultivating empathy as core to its mission. “In this new world, empathy is one of the most important skills,” they state on a subsection of their website dedicated to the topic. “Every individual needs the skill of empathy to succeed.


Empathy is foundational to the ability to resolve conflict, to collaborate in teams, to align interests, to listen effectively and make decisions where there are no rules or precedents, to solve problems and drive change.”

Russell Roberts's curator insight, August 3, 1:34 AM

Sometimes, you've got to help yourself.  Case in point:  Organizers of the "Clean the Canal" event spent a day near a section of the weed-choked Palolo Stream adjacent to St. Louis High School clearing the stream of accumulated weeds, trash, and debris.  The event was led by residents of the Regency Park Condominiums, who were told by Honolulu City officials that they lacked the personnel to do the job.  Residents of the condominium complex added that "they were tired of looking at a stream bed choked with rubbish and overgrown with weeds, which they said could become a flooding threat."  For its part, the city of Honolulu supplied tools, gloves, garbage bags, and a rubbish truck to haul the refuse away.  Aloha, Russ.

Your #Brand Story: Use the past to help tell the story of your future

Your #Brand Story: Use the past to help tell the story of your future | Community | Scoop.it

Those who tell the stories rule the world. ~ Native American proverb

 

 

A brand story allows your message to the world to travel.
Brand stories are how people decide if they follow you, like you and recommend you.

 

Your brand story is how you want to distinguish yourself from the market and the storm of information overload.

 

Every brand has a background or founding story, a story that explains how it came into this world.
