In our final episode of the series Conflict and Empathy: Where Has Empathy and Compassion Gone? Keiko Krahnke from the University of Colorado will join me and Edwin Rutsch, Center for Building a Culture of Empathy to discuss how do we foster empathy in a business, work and beyond? We will also look at the larger social systems and see how we can build a truly global culture of empathy.
Last episode we talked a great deal about building empathy by starting with the family first. But what about the business world? I happened to mention our series to someone in the business world and their response was ‘does it even have a place in business?’ Let’s start there.
Given what feels like a lack of empathy and compassion in the workplace, how does a leader even begin to address this in their organization?
How can employees begin to take ownership of building empathy and compassion in their workplace?
How do we go “beyond” and building a global culture of empathy?
What can global citizens do to support and do their part?
How can each of us cultivate empathy in our daily lives?
