A New Way to Look at Well-Being

A New Way to Look at Well-Being | Resilience 14 | Scoop.it

After six years of measuring and reporting on well-being and health in the U.S., Gallup and Healthways in January 2014 decided to propel the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index to the next level. In short, we’ve given the way we measure well-being a thorough makeover. The updated survey reflects countless hours of research conducted by Gallup and Healthways experts to advance the science of well-being. This research increases the power and scope of the Well-Being Index, which now predicts more key health and business outcomes and provides more actionable insights to leaders and individuals than ever before.

The revamped survey includes 27 brand new questions on everything from perceptions of physical appearance to weekly alcohol consumption; from having an inspiring leader to time spent taking vacations with loved ones. We delve into community pride and financial worry as well.

Family and Relationships: Raising a Moral Child

Family and Relationships: Raising a Moral Child | Resilience 14 | Scoop.it

Gopnik’s research confirms this. Empathy, she points out, is rooted in attachment and in the interpersonal contact we have with our early caretakers. As parents interact face-to-face with their infants, soothing them and responding to their needs, they are modeling the very first “morality” their child sees in the world.....


Even with a good understanding of these principles, there are some traps to watch out for—some limitations in the human brain’s natural approach to both rule-following and empathy.


==================================

“Empathy grounds morality, but morality

goes beyond empathy,”

Gopnik writes.

=============


“Empathy grounds morality, but morality goes beyond empathy,” Gopnik writes. “After all, crying yourself when someone else is hurt doesn’t actually help them any—sheer empathy can just be morally self-indulgent.”

And business stands in diametric opposiion to these points when it is put into practice.

 

Where are the morals in conservtism?

 

Where is the religion in what they have to say, in spite of the number of times they "pray" and "worship" their various deities.

It's just money the business people are after.  Not much higher than a bottom feeder in the ocean.

 

Silly brains.

How to teach kids empathy

How to teach kids empathy | Resilience 14 | Scoop.it

Empathy and sympathy are often confused. To have empathy means to identify with the feelings of others and share in them.


People who have sympathy feel compassion for others, but do not relate those feelings back to themselves. Empathy is a learned trait. Teaching children to be empathetic will help them become able to understand and help those who are struggling and suffering. These 3 tips will help you get started in teaching this important character trait.


Discuss empathy in everyday situations...Set the example...Involve your children...

Empathy (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) | Resilience 14 | Scoop.it

Despite its linguistic roots in ancient Greek, the concept of empathy is of recent intellectual heritage.


Yet its history has been varied and colorful, a fact that is also mirrored in the multiplicity of definitions associated with the empathy concept in a number of different scientific and non-scientific discourses...


===============

The purpose of this entry is to clarify the
empathy concept
by surveying its history
in various philosophical and 
psychological discussions and by indicating why empathy
was and should be regarded to be of such
central importance in understanding human
agency in ordinary contexts..

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to l
ook through each other’s eyes for an instant?”

Henry David Thoreau


Do we start from empathy when we set out to solve educational challenges and design learning pathways for our students?

How do we foster empathy and make it a starting point for problem solving and the design of new solutions for both ourselves and for our students?

 

Empathy over sympathy
Lately it seems all roads lead to empathy: 
 

Tony Wagner in Creating Innovators identifies empathy as a necessary characteristic for innovators;
 

 David Kelly of Stanford University identifies empathy as the starting point for all problem solving;
 

 Daniel Goleman states leaders with empathy do more than sympathize with people around them: they use their knowledge to improve their companies in subtle, but important ways.

Not only is empathy vital for

solving problems responsively and

meaningfully, empathy is an

underpinning for connection
