But never has empathy been so important. We live in an unprecedented era of accelerated and unpredictable change. I completely agree with Rifkin that "the empathic evolution of the human race and the profound ways it has shaped our development... will likely decide our fate as a species."

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:
A great post which ties into some ideas about the world we live in. Is curriculum important today? Or is it the skills, habits, atttudes, and practices of being a leaner that mean more? I think the latter.
They’d all read innumerable books on leadership, taken leadership skills assessments, and attended multiple training programs — including executive leadership programs at top business schools. They knew as much as anyone about leadership.
Why do people do good things? Is kindness hardwired into the brain, or does this tendency arise via experience? A psychologist probes how altruism, evolution and neurobiology mean that we can succeed by not being cutthroat.
The knee-jerk reaction of too many people in leadership positions when they feel wronged is righteous indignation and the urge for revenge. But one factor that sets truly transformational leaders apart from the run-of-the-mill is the ability to forgive - to let feelings of anger, resentment and blame fall away and become something constructive.
