Meghin Moore's curator insight, October 2, 2013 2:47 PM

I'm technically part of the Millennial generation, which is a description I absolutely loathe. With that said, I'd rather be engaging in actually doing my work (hopefully in social media or journalism) as opposed to just sitting around, doing menial office work. My generation has grown up ready and willing to fully immerse themselves in the world around us, and to actually get to work.

Empathy in Business: a ‘soft skill’ with lasting effect

Empathy in Business: a ‘soft skill’ with lasting effect | Harmonious and Balanced Workplace | Scoop.it

It’s hard to measure the effect that empathy has on the bottom line. However, my experience shows that the best kind of business happens when both parties feel they can be trusting, open and understood. Theodore Roosevelt said, “No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Good business is built on good relationships, and empathy is the root of strong relationships. Yes, it’s important to be knowledgeable about product and process, but without empathy, “no one cares.”

5 Simple Steps to Become More Empathetic:

1/ Listen: ...

2/ Focus on others: ...

3/ Be genuine: ...

4/ Be respectful: ...

5/ Acknowledge and give feedback:...
