Global Empathy Experiment

Global Empathy Experiment | Compassionate Leadership | Scoop.it

Could a greater miracle take place than for us to lookthrough each other’s eyes for an instant?"  Henry David ThoreauPeople tend to circle with those who share similar views and ideas, but what about those who don’t share the same values or who don’t believe in the same God?  Can you still feel to their joy? Suffering?  Experiences?  That's Empathy.

We must take the first leap together, as ONE, to see beyond what defines us and to reach beyond where we come from to truly see others.  Heartbreak, anger, loneliness; these are universal terms. And what about other living creatures, do they not feel pain and suffering?

What we are trying to say is that we must care about those around us. It shouldn't be just about OUR loved ones, OUR misfortunes and OUR pleasures. Globalizing empathy is a step towards a better society, developing care and understanding that cross geographical, social and species boundaries.

Can us caring lead others to care? And can this care be translated into actions? Actions like saving lives, spreading love, reaching out and giving a helping hand…

Empathy and Compassion in Society?

Great thinkers say it is the key to a successful society. Business leaders are interested in its potential to reduce burnout and low productivity. Educators know it is what matters most. Scientific institutes are opening new centres to research it. 

Most of us hold it as a central value in our personal life... But do we also put it into action in our working life?

How could we engineer humans to have more empathy?

How could we engineer humans to have more empathy? | Compassionate Leadership | Scoop.it

People are capable of amazing kindness, but also of unbelievable callousness. We go out of our way to help strangers, but we also turn a blind eye to misery. But what if you could make human beings kind all the time? What does science teach us about empathy, and how to create it in people? We decided to ask the experts.

 

We approached some of the top experts in psychology, neuroscience and philosophy with a pretty simple question: "Suppose you were ruler of the world, and you decided to engineer the human race to have more empathy. How would you go about doing this, and what would be the consequences, good or bad?"

 

The answers we received reveal a lot about not just empathy, but about human nature.

My son and I recently tested a fun app called, “How are you?” developed by tapp-mobile.com and designer Giorgia Graziadei. The educational app was created for kids to encourage and develop empathy by recognizing their own emotions so that they can learn to recognize emotions and feelings in others. “How are you?” app is designed for children 3- 6 years old and for people on the autistic spectrum.

NY Times: How Not to Be Alone

NY Times: How Not to Be Alone | Compassionate Leadership | Scoop.it
Technology may make it easier to communicate electronically, but more difficult to do so emotionally.

 

Psychologists who study empathy and compassion are finding that unlike our almost instantaneous responses to physical pain, it takes time for the brain to comprehend the psychological and moral dimensions of a situation. The more distracted we become, and the more emphasis we place on speed at the expense of depth, the less likely and able we are to care...

 

Most of the time, most people are not crying in public, but everyone is always in need of something that another person can give, be it undivided attention, a kind word or deep empathy. There is no better use of a life than to be attentive to such needs. There are as many ways to do this as there are kinds of loneliness, but all of them require attentiveness, all of them require the hard work of emotional computation and corporeal compassion. All of them require the human processing of the only animal who risks “getting it wrong” and whose dreams provide shelters and vaccines and words to crying strangers.

How Nurturing Babies Cultivates Empathy

How Nurturing Babies Cultivates Empathy | Compassionate Leadership | Scoop.it
Sue Gerhardt, author of 'Why Love Matters', illustrates the important connection between nurturing infants and the development of empathy.

 

Why do you think empathy is important for children to develop?

Empathy is one of our highest human skills and holds families and societies together.  Feeling connected to other people is probably the deepest satisfaction we will ever know. How terrible for children who are being brought up without that capacity – and how risky for the future of the planet. I talk about some of these bigger issues in my book The Selfish Society: How We Forgot to Love Each Other and Made Money Instead (Simon and Schuster 2010).

 

At what point do you think children who have been nurtured at a young age are able to behave with a spirit of empathy?

John Michel's curator insight, June 21, 2013 1:09 PM

During infancy is when all sorts of emotional programmes are being set up – especially the brain systems that manage how we deal with stress, how we soothe ourselves, how much support we expect from the people close to us.  The brain is growing incredibly fast and is more open to influence during this time than ever again.

Talking to Others: How to Be Empathetic & Effective

Talking to Others: How to Be Empathetic & Effective | Compassionate Leadership | Scoop.it
There is a delicate balance to strike between empathy and effectiveness in interpersonal communication.

 

Interpersonal communication — you know, talking with others — can be a tough nut to crack sometimes. Whether it be between family, colleagues or just plain socially, there is a delicate balance to strike between empathy and effectiveness.

 

Empathy begins with listening, of course, so it’s no wonder that many of us prefer talking! It extends to finding the right way to “connect back” with what a person said, especially if you disagree or are even offended.
