Author of Cook, Talk, Love Cites Lack of Empathy as a Source of Conflict at Family Gatherings, Offers Solutions

Author of Cook, Talk, Love Cites Lack of Empathy as a Source of Conflict at Family Gatherings, Offers Solutions | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

A lot of conflict today is caused by an alarming decrease in empathy. A 2010 study conducted at the University of Michigan found college students had a 40% decrease in empathy compared to their peers 30 years ago, with most of the decrease occurring in the last 10 years. Empathy is the ability to recognize feelings in other people. Empathy is a requirement of compassion. Empathy is where the line is blurred between our feelings and that of another person. Without empathy, one doesn’t care what another is feeling. Without empathy, it’s all about that person and no one else. This lack of empathy hurts relationships.

Feeling Heard: How Empathy-Driven Development Creates Products Users Love


Ewuranna Smith-Quayson

Why Empathy Matters

Empathy simply means the ability to sense and relate to other peoples’ emotions. Psychologists consider it a critical skill for establishing personal connections and understanding experiences beyond our own.

Product designers need empathy to build digital tools that make users feel empowered rather than incompetent or lost. Just adding easier interfaces and more transitions misses deeper issues users face.

The World Needs More Empathy—Here Is How Science Can Harness It

The World Needs More Empathy—Here Is How Science Can Harness It | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

by McGill University

 

“Empathy is the ability to understand the situation of another person and is vital for prosocial behaviors. However, we know that empathy isn’t just one thing—we can experience it very differently, either as personal distress or compassionate concern for that other person,” explains McGill psychology professor Signy Sheldon, and the study’s co-author.

Until now, research in empathy has largely focused on how imagining helping another person can promote compassion, but not on how imagining another person’s situation affects empathy, which is usually our first mental course of action.

Neurobiological similarity and empathy both play crucial roles in interpersonal communication, study finds

Neurobiological similarity and empathy both play crucial roles in interpersonal communication, study finds | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

by Eric W. Dolan

New research published in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience provides evidence that higher empathy and neurobiological similarity both play a role in successful communication. However, people tend to rate the quality of their interactions higher when they perceive a sense of similarity with their communication partner, regardless of their actual neural similarities.

Human beings are inherently social creatures. From casual conversations with strangers to deep bonds with close friends and family, our lives are filled with interactions. But what makes some of these interactions more successful and enjoyable than others?

The Ego-Empathy Balance | 2019-11-22 | FLOOR Trends & Installation

The Ego-Empathy Balance | 2019-11-22 | FLOOR Trends & Installation | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
The ego-empathy balance requires paying attention to another’s desires without wholly sacrificing one’s own. Ego is what gives the salesperson the desire to achieve the sale. Empathy is the other story. Empathy gives one the ability to accurately sense the reactions of other people thus producing the connecting means to make the transaction happen amicably. It is the correct portions of ego and empathy that fosters successful selling. 

Let us begin with ego. Ego is that part of us which craves attention, praise, and success. Ego is what promotes our need for self-esteem and confidence. Great salespeople want to make the sale in an intensely personal way. They do not make the sale just because of the money they will earn; they do it because they get a sense of pride and triumph. This ego drive allows salespeople to have enough confidence to build strong relationships while garnering respect and credibility. Successful salespeople must have enough ego to be motivated by failures and rejections yet not be shattered by them.

From School to Society: The Ripple Effect of Teaching Empathy to Kids – A Spotlight on Lynne Azarchi

From School to Society: The Ripple Effect of Teaching Empathy to Kids – A Spotlight on Lynne Azarchi | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

by Anita Nowak

One day, after being told that empathy could not be taught, Lynne made it her mission to find evidence to the contrary. The culmination of extensive research is her book, The Empathy Advantage: Coaching Children to Be Kind, Respectful, and Successful.

In it, she paints a vivid picture of empowered children who, armed with empathy, can navigate the complexities of the world, and become a generation that cares deeply about others beyond their immediate circles.

Marina de Alarcón's curator insight, December 1, 6:30 AM

La dedicación de Lynne Azarchi, líder de KidsBridge Youth Center, destaca la importancia de enseñar empatía a niños y educadores. La empatía no solo es esencial para el bienestar personal, sino también un imperativo moral para el futuro de la sociedad.

 

La obra de Lynne desmiente la idea errónea de que la empatía es innata. Su investigación y libro, "The Empathy Advantage", no solo demuestran que la empatía puede enseñarse, sino que también brindan herramientas prácticas para la educación infantil. Destacar la conexión entre empatía, éxito personal y bienestar social enriquece el discurso educativo actual. Sus recomendaciones, desde el valor de las mascotas hasta abogar por escuelas seguras, ofrecen guías útiles para padres y educadores. La importancia de la autoempatía en un mundo digital enfatiza la relevancia continua de estas lecciones en un entorno en constante cambio.

 

Como conclusión, la obra de Lynne destaca la importancia de la empatía en la formación de individuos y comunidades saludables. La empatía es esencial para el bienestar emocional y social. Lynne sugiere que la empatía puede ser clave para preservar la democracia en un mundo que a menudo prioriza la individualidad sobre la conexión humana. Su trabajo ofrece una perspectiva esencial sobre la construcción de un futuro más compasivo y cohesionado.

Lessons in Empathy and Understanding From My Late Mother

Lessons in Empathy and Understanding From My Late Mother | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

Dr. Nicole Price

For nearly four decades, I championed logic and reason while dismissing empathy and compassion. My mother’s passing was a pivotal moment that allowed me to perceive empathy through her perspective. It was the start of my journey to intentionally integrate empathy into my life.

In my book, Spark the Heart: Engineering Empathy in Your Organization, I delve into this personal transformation. Today, I want to share how crucial empathy is in the workplace, particularly in relation to accountability.

In this article, we explore the role of empathy in AI and examine its potential to transform the customer experience.


The importance of empathy in customer service
Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others. Empathy is critical in customer service, building trust, and creating an emotional connection with customers.

According to a study by the Harvard Business Review,

Customers who feel emotionally connected to a brand are 52% more valuable than those who are just satisfied with their experience.

This highlights the importance of empathy in customer service.

What is an Empathetic Workplace? Why does it matter?

What is an Empathetic Workplace? Why does it matter? | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

Katharine Manning

An empathetic workplace is one that accepts that humans work here, and does its best to create an environment where they can thrive. Even on bad days, even during upheaval, even when the world is on fire.

The world has been on fire quite a lot lately.

If we expect people to act like output production machines that are unaffected by the fires around them, we will fail. But if we endeavor to recognize what is actually happening with our workforce, and to give them support when they need it, well. That’s how you build an army. That’s how you create the kind of resilience, trust, and respect that will keep that army cohesive and striving. Even when it’s hard. Even through the mud and fire and chaos.

Why a doctor's empathy is important for keeping patients safe

Why a doctor's empathy is important for keeping patients safe | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

Jeremy Howick

Professor and Director of the Stoneygate Centre for Excellence in Empathic Healthcare, University of Leicester

 

Evidence supports the idea that more empathy in hospitals and clinics – commonly taken to involve understanding and taking action – would reduce many persistent problems with patient care. As well as reducing patient complaints and medical errors, clinical trials have shown that if a healthcare professional shows empathy it can reduce pain (both chronic and acute) and post-operative morphine use, and improve immunity in post-operative patients.

Why empathy constitutes the ultimate leadership skill

Why empathy constitutes the ultimate leadership skill | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

When asked what traits constitute a good leader, you may be tempted to list traditional qualities such as rationality, cool-headedness, and overall, an ability to detach oneself from one’s emotions. However, research has shown that the ability to feel empathy toward one’s colleagues is in fact the most critical leadership skills, and much-overlooked. Empathy is on record for boosting employees’ ability to innovate, engage with the task at hand, balance work and life demands, and not least, motivate them to stay within the company.

So, what stands in the way of more of the good stuff spreading across companies’ higher echelons?

Standing In Your Consumers’ Shoes: The Importance Of Consumer Empathy For Brands

What Could You Learn By Developing Consumer Empathy?

These companies use empathy to design products that better meet their audience’s needs. They innovate to fill gaps in the market faster and better than their competitors. They fine-tune their packaging to catch and hold shoppers’ attention. They test and tweak their advertising and product creative until it resonates with shoppers. They plan their budgets and design their operations around a deep understanding of what their audience needs and wants.

 

Whether they’re labeled as “consumer empathy,” “consumer closeness” or simply “consumer insights” programs, these initiatives all share the same goal: to better understand the needs and motivations that drive consumer behavior.

A new study emphasizes that managerial empathy needs to be authentic.

I've long been a believer in the importance of empathy in management. At its core, management is about relationships, and empathy, of course, is a key element of positive relationships.

This is why I was interested in recent research from Ernst & Young analyzing the benefits and drawbacks of empathy as a management tool.

A study of 1,000 employed US workers discussed numerous positive aspects of empathy in the workplace. For example:

How we lost the ability to evaluate two seemingly contradicting facts at the same time–and why it could mean the end of empathy

How we lost the ability to evaluate two seemingly contradicting facts at the same time–and why it could mean the end of empathy | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
Instead of adopting a hyper-simplified approach, we must take a counter-intuitive approach and assume there can be multiple realities that are true. This is how empathy works in a real-life setting. By taking a counter-intuitive approach to a topic, and recognizing that we can hold multiple points of truth, we can empathize with another person who is affected by the topic regardless of which side of the topic they are on. And if we all took this approach, there would not be sides to begin with.

3 Consequences of a Lack of Empathy in Leadership  

3 Consequences of a Lack of Empathy in Leadership   | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it


The first indications of a lack of empathy in leadership may lie in the problems the leader is regularly faced with. If one or more of the following issues seems familiar, a solution may be found in a more empathic approach:

1. Miscommunications

It may seem obvious, but miscommunicating information will not often lead to the desired response. Before delivery, a leader needs to consider how communication will be received and understood. An empathic leader will tailor messages appropriately to maintain clarity and avoid the receiver "getting the wrong end of the stick."

Fool’s Empathy and How to Avoid It 

Fool’s Empathy and How to Avoid It  | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

Peter Sear 

Avoiding the trap that sends us down the wrong path.

 

During my research and work on empathy with individuals, teams, and organisations, I witness a common mistake. When I point out this error a eureka expression appears on the face in front of me. It suddenly seems obvious, yet the trap is easy to fall into, and the danger of doing so is perhaps exacerbated by our haste to understand another human being’s situation.

Empathy has so much to offer us in our personal and professional endeavours. It empowers us with insight, allowing us to make better-informed decisions. All the more important, then, that we empathise as wisely and accurately as possible.

Why Empathy is Key to Change

Why Empathy is Key to Change | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
In the book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey explains that empathy is key to effectiveness. He encourages the reader: “seek first to understand, then to be understood.” Wouldn’t it be great if as Christians we were known by our empathy?

We have received the best example of empathy in the person of Jesus. He became a man and can intimately empathise with us because he knows what it is like to experience pain and weakness. He offers us comfort so that we may comfort others.

“God is our… source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort He has given us.” — 2 Corinthians 1:3–4

Being empathetic with others can promote trust and lead to more open and honest relationships.
