Empathy is the ability to recognize, understand, and share the thoughts and feelings of another person, animal, or fictional character. Developing empathy is crucial for establishing relationships and behaving compassionately. It involves experiencing another person’s point of view, rather than just one’s own, and enables prosocial or helping behaviors that come from within, rather than being forced.

Some surveys indicate that empathy is on the decline in the United States and elsewhere, findings that motivate parents, schools, and communities to support programs that help people of all ages enhance and maintain their ability to walk in each other’s shoes

Sometimes we all need to talk to someone.

 

Sometimes we need to talk to someone. We may need to vent frustration, celebrate a win, or want a friendly ear during a time of loneliness. The problem is many people do not always have someone ready and willing to listen.

 

Dallas-based startup Listeners on Call is trying to solve the problem through its consumer listening services connecting people in need to an empathetic listening ear. The company believes in the power of meaningful conversations.

10 Questions About Empathy In America, A Year After George Floyd's Death  

10 Questions About Empathy In America, A Year After George Floyd's Death   | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Let's get the big question out of the way: Do you see a lack of empathy as one reason racism continues to thrive in the U.S.?

Segal: It's the lack of social empathy. You have a lot of people who don't have any experience or insight into people of other races, and that fills a void that often can be filled with stereotypes and displaced anger: "I'm not getting ahead because of them." It's the other-ness of people. We have intrinsic tools for empathy, but we have to learn how to be empathic.

[Empathy and mirror neurons. A view on contemporary neuropsychological empathy research]

[Empathy and mirror neurons. A view on contemporary neuropsychological empathy research] | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Neurons firing both to specific actions performed by self and matching actions performed by others are classified as mirror neurons. Since its discovery in 1991, this phenomenon has been surveyed in the field of motor and sensorimotor function and incipiently in the field of language and emotions. The research group of Giacomo Rizzolatti assumes that mirror neurons form the biological basis of compassion and thereby of affective empathic experience. The research regarding mirror neurons is yet in early stages and further research is required to specify mirror neuron systems. In view of empathy it is the insula which is of central importance for the recognition of disgust.

 

The discovery of mirror neurons allows a comprehension of empathy as an immediate and compassionate partaking of a response, enabling an understanding of the other persons feeling. At the same time, the resonating affect remains allocated to the other person, distinguishing this comprehensive process from a mere emotional contagion. At present, the phenomenon of mirror neurons is gaining clinical relevance in the field of autism spectrum disorders and apoplexia. One's own ability for empathy as well as promoting empathetic abilities of others is of central importance for the clinical praxis, in particular concerning the treatment of children and adolescents.

The Power of Empathy: More companies are finding that more care brings more success

The Power of Empathy: More companies are finding that more care brings more success | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

In design and tech circles, a focus on empathy has been quietly growing since Daniel H. Pink’s 2005 book, “A Whole New Mind.” Pink argues that as traditional jobs are outsourced to other countries or to artificial intelligence, if leaders and employees want to keep their edge, they need to embrace more nonlinear and right-brain thinking. Empathy, Pink argued, is a skill leaders need to embrace to spur nonlinear ideation.

In conversation with Tim Leberecht, we explore what Turkle has learned through decades of research and her own experiences, and how this is relevant for how we can thrive at work"

Using Empathy And Emotional Intelligence To Navigate Workplace Conflict In The Covid-19 Era | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

#EmpathyCircles: The best #Empathy building practice.  http://www.empathycircle.com

 

Like most workplace mental health issues, leadership has an important role to play in setting the tone for these interactions. Even if the decision-makers at an organization are less cautious than some, or perhaps even disagree with the face mask requirement, Covid-19 safety can be framed as a mental health issue in that employees may experience anxiety and alienation if they feel they are being put at risk. To achieve this, a culture of empathy and openness is key.

"Nearly every C-suite executive and team leader can acknowledge that empathy — the ability to temporarily see a situation from another person's perspective — is a powerful leadership tool that, when used appropriately, eliminates individual and team negativity and can increase team performance.

Leaders also recognize that the impact of anxiety and negative emotions team members have experienced during the last year of the Covid-19 pandemic will, to some degree, continue post-pandemic. And that this means team leaders will be required to be more empathetic than they were pre-pandemic if they want to create and lead high-performance work teams. "

Extending Empathy to Widen our Circles 

Extending Empathy to Widen our Circles  | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

BUT I also think that there is a line between empathy and blind tolerance that we have to be cautious of.  

I think we as a society, and that must start with myself, need to better balance being ‘right’ and having ‘empathy’ and having ‘tolerance.’ There needs to be a balance between trying to understand someone and trying to care for someone, but where does that end?  

When I think of trying to empathize and understand people I don’t agree with, I think of Daryl Davis, a black man who used to attend KKK rallies.

COACHING CORPS IS OFFERING FREE ONLINE EMPATHY TRAINING FOR COACHES IN UNDER-RESOURCED COMMUNITIES


We believe it is critical for coaches to understand the emotions and feelings of youth in under-resourced communities, many of whom have faced systemic inequalities. Some of these experiences like discrimination, economic hardship, racism and exposure to violence can many times result in toxic stress, a condition that can lead to lifelong problems in learning, behavior, and physical and mental health.

Cancel Culture and Empathy: Can They Coexist? "If canceling others means not hearing them, does that close off empathy?"

Cancel Culture and Empathy: Can They Coexist? "If canceling others means not hearing them, does that close off empathy?" | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
When we engage in cancel culture, we risk ignoring empathy.


"Canceling others needs to be examined carefully and through a lens of empathy.


We need to ensure we are curbing dangerous and hateful speech, not silencing those with whom we disagree.


If we “cancel” others by silencing them and cutting them off, then there is no connection. We are not listening and we are not  sharing, which are key actions needed to experience empathy. However, the relationship between empathy and what's known as cancel culture is complicated."

Does Racism Mean There's a Lack of Empathy? "Racism blocks us from sharing feelings and understanding others."

Does Racism Mean There's a Lack of Empathy? "Racism blocks us from sharing feelings and understanding others." | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
  • Powerful images, such as the video of the death of George Floyd can evoke empathy, particularly interpersonal empathy.

  • However, racism narrows our views and serves to block all forms of empathy.

  • Understanding historical context and the impact of racist policies and structures can move us to interpersonal and social empathy.


Last week I was contacted by a journalist who was wondering, as we approached the anniversary of the death of George Floyd, was a lack of empathy behind the existence and continuation of racism in the United States? Had people been moved empathically after watching the horrific death of George Floyd unfold in real time on video? Did that empathy lead to greater awareness and action to confront racism?1 It’s possible.

Is Empathy The Most Important Selling Skill?

Is Empathy The Most Important Selling Skill? | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

Empathy is the foundation of consultative selling.

Empathy is important in many aspects of business, but why is it important in selling?

 

First, you have to acknowledge some negative stereotypes. There is a perception that salespeople lack empathy, and some of it is warranted. This may be a stereotype because salespeople are too busy pitching, not listening, and thinking they already know the answer — treating the customer as a potential sale instead of a human being with a business need. They are often so busy 'selling' that they don’t take time to understand the customer or the background behind their business problems.

Empathy shouldn't be optional in your workplace culture

Empathy shouldn't be optional in your workplace culture | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
For leaders who accept the new reality a new path is emerging, and it is one that fosters the push to full expression. Inherently, this is also an inclusion of more equality and less injustice. Their job is to find the way to have a corporate culture that is rooted in empathy, all of which  make hard conversations possible

Leaders on this path recognize the toxicity of divisive politics. But they don’t see it as an excuse for moral apathy. They understand that apolitical and amoral are not the same. They know emotionally charged labels have served as barriers to understanding. And realize that to accept empathy as optional is to admit defeat.

STUDY: An investigation of children's empathic dispositions and behaviours across seven countries - Infant and Child Development

STUDY: An investigation of children's empathic dispositions and behaviours across seven countries - Infant and Child Development | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

This study examined individual influences on child empathy, the relationship between child and parent empathy, and the relationship between empathy and prosociality across seven countries.

 

A large sample of children (N = 792, 49% female) from the ages of 6–10 years completed a situational empathy task, as well as a dictator game to assess prosociality.

 

The questionnaire of cognitive and affective empathy was used to assess parents' and children's empathic dispositions. Children participated from Canada, China, Colombia, Jordan, South Africa, Turkey, and the United States.

 

Situational empathy, empathic disposition, and prosociality were all positively associated with age. Boys displayed less situational empathy and lower empathic disposition than girls. Parental empathic disposition predicted the same dispositions in children but were not related to children's situational empathy or prosociality. No association was found between child prosociality and child empathic disposition. Overall, the results suggest similar ontologies of empathic disposition and situational empathy across countries.

What brought the migrant crisis to mind, along with the humanitarian crisis our government is fueling in Yemen, was the fictional philosophy of “empathicalism,” which Hepburn’s character, Jo, pursues with a passion.

Jo explains to Astaire’s character, Dick Avery, the philosophy is based on empathy, which he, in turn, relates to sympathy.

“Oh, it goes beyond sympathy,” Jo responds. “Sympathy is to understand what someone feels; empathy is to project your imagination so that you actually feel what the other person is feeling: you put yourself in the other person’s place.”

Engaging Extremists with Empathy

Their relationship, however, allows to see how empathy, dialogue and understanding can help heal certain wounds.

Their story is one example of how dialogue between ETA’s members and victims can set the groundwork for intergroup dialogue at a social level, and eventually bring about social reconciliation between all parties. 

Empathy and employing certain narratives on dialogues can be powerful tools in overcoming ideological differences when dealing with extremist groups such as ETA. Aside from these tools for peacebuilding, there are some important points to keep in mind. Even though reconciliation efforts with ETA improved with empathy and a positive narrative on describing dialogue initiatives with ETA, different types of conflict will need different solutions due to the unique context[8].

 

Focusing on ETA is rooted in the purpose to display how narratives describing dialogue and empathy can aid in resolving conflict with extremist groups. On another note, security/military forces used to combat the threat of violent actions from extremist groups are still a necessary component

The 5 Steps of Design Thinking Help Drive School Improvements

The 5 Steps of Design Thinking Help Drive School Improvements | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

#EmpathyCircles: The best #Empathy building practice.  http://www.empathycircle.com

 

One of the most accepted Design Thinking models is that of the Stanford d.school, and its five steps of empathy, define, ideate, prototype, and test. I will briefly highlight each step, including  examples of how they can be applied in an education context.

“Good design, when it’s done well, becomes invisible.” This quote, by Jared Spool, a design expert and educator, makes sense if you have ever experienced a bad design – something that is almost always caused by a failure to empathize with the ultimate user. Parents who struggle to find the information they need on a district’s new LMS is an unfortunate example where the system’s designers did not adequately consider the user perspective.

An empathy map is a great tool to help a design team use observations, surveys, focus groups, etc. to understand what the user is saying, thinking, feeling, and doing relative to the problem at hand. Ryan Schultz, a Blended Learning Coordinator at the Poudre School District’s Futures Lab (CO), used this process as part of his efforts to set up his hybrid classroom.
