The Empathy Edge: Maria Ross : Wisdom From The Top with Guy Raz : NPR | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
In 2016, Maria Ross realized that she was trying to teach her son that empathy was a way to success, when the world around them seemed to be sending the exact opposite message. So she took her years of experience as a management and brand consultant to make the case for empathy not as a moral imperative, but as a business strategy. She turned her research into a book called The Empathy Edge: Harnessing the Value of Compassion as an Engine for Success.

The importance of empathic higher ed leaders in a disruptive time (opinion)

The importance of empathic higher ed leaders in a disruptive time (opinion) | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
One important quality, though, is too often glossed over: empathy.

Sure, position descriptions identify emotional intelligence, cross-cultural competency and interpersonal skills as essential for successful leaders. But when it comes down to actually selecting someone, empathic leadership can be hard to define—and even harder to tease out in the search process.

Why is empathic leadership important? In an era when leaders face intense scrutiny—from the public, political leaders, alumni and parents, and even from within their own institutions—empathic leaders are able to self-reflect, be present, listen actively, identify and act on their emotions, and withhold judgment. These qualities can foster resilience and longevity, especially during a time of disruption. Moreover, by displaying empathy, leaders model qualities that are at the very core of university life: civility, authenticity and openness to vigorous debate.

My students began the year learning about empathy.
They are learning about empathy via a whole-class class read aloud. We are reading the book Restart by Gordon Korman. The students are loving this book so far. It tells of the effects of one person's behaviors from different perspectives. It will be very powerful for them to each of their own copy to annotate and draw connections.

Empathy training for research, collaboration, and citizenship — | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
Others Empathy Training is a curriculum of common sense, and uncommon spirit.
Empathy isn’t magic. It isn’t a sixth sense, or a tender feeling, and may or may not inspire you to be kind. Empathy is the skill of seeing things from another point of view, even and especially those you can’t stand or fathom. Simply shifting your perspective is the practice. And we believe that practice is the key to every relationship, whether between colleagues or communities, companies and consumers, neighbors or nations.

Here’s why A.I. chatbots might have more empathy than your manager

Here’s why A.I. chatbots might have more empathy than your manager | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
Active listening
People are more willing to open themselves up to machines (when it comes to disclosing sensitive information or ideas generation) because they feel that machines do not judge them.

Cognitive A.I. chatbots take a step further by actively listening to their users, for example, repeating what their users have said and acknowledging users’ feelings empathetically to make users feel heard. More importantly, cognitive A.I. chatbots never place judgments on what users have expressed. Likewise, if organization leaders can practice active listening, remove egos and judgments from the room, and pay attention to their employees instead of their own thoughts, they could better connect with, understand, and lead their teams.

5 Therapy Techniques That Can Help Save A Relationship

5 Therapy Techniques That Can Help Save A Relationship | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
Reflective Listening 

“The most common complaint coming from couples is that their partners do not listen to them. This problem is solved when the other partner becomes a better listener in a way that is evident to the other person, using a technique called Reflective Listening,” says Husain. This communication strategy involves two steps: seeking to understand what someone is saying, and repeating back to the speaker to confirm that the content has been understood correctly. Reflective listening tells your partner that you are really making an effort to understand what they are saying and genuinely interested in knowing what they have to say.

Leading With Empathy Without Ignoring Execution

The value of leading with empathy
The benefits of leading with empathy outweigh any misconceptions as to why a leader shouldn’t show empathy.

Showing empathy engages others. Engagement and performance are highly correlated. When engagement is higher, performance also tends to be higher.

Furthermore, empathy is a relational skill. When relatedness is stronger, the bonds of a team are stronger. The team can face complex challenges successfully when team members:

How to Offer Empathy

  • Listen carefully not only to what you are being told, but especially to the feelings being expressed.
  • Repeat back to the person what you have heard them tell you, in order to make sure you are understanding them. You may say something like, “I am hearing that you’re feeling (sad or angry or confused) about (whatever the situation might be).” We call this repetition of what the other person has expressed “reflective listening.” And it’s important to do this because too often we make wrong assumptions about other people based on our own issues or experiences, rather than listening deeply to what the other person tells us.
  • The person talking to you can then let you know if you have heard them correctly. If not, ask them to kindly tell you again what they want you to know and assure them that you want to understand them

Empathy present and future

Empathy present and future | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

The empathy concept has central significance for social and personality psychology and in many other domains, including neuroscience, clinical/abnormal psychology, and the health professions. However, the current diversity in conceptual and operational definitions, and the promiscuous use of the term "empathy," threaten the ability of researchers to advance the field.

 

 

The present article provides a quantitative review and conceptual analysis of empathy definitions and usages by examining 393 studies published between 2001 and 2013, and 96 studies published in 2017. We document the prevalence and diversity of definitions, as well as inconsistencies between conceptual definitions and measurements employed

 

. We discuss ways to refine the conceptualization and operationalization of the empathy construct, including for many purposes, bypassing the term empathy in favor of lower-level construct labels that more precisely describe what is actually being measured. In many cases we see no added theoretical or empirical value in applying the term empathy.

“When you ask people to report on the empathetic experiences that they’ve had, they resonate with other people’s positive feelings just as much as their negative ones, if not more," Jamil Zaki says. "And yet, I don’t think they realize how they can apply it in their own lives.”

How To Be More Empathetic In A Relationship, According To Experts

How To Be More Empathetic In A Relationship, According To Experts | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
Being empathetic means you're aware of someone's emotions from their perspective; you feel what they feel. Although it's important to be empathetic in every personal connection you have, it's vital to maintaining a long-lasting romantic relationship with your partner. No matter how long you've been with your S.O., feeling understood and heard is a great way to feel like you and your partner are a team. But to completely understand what it means to be empathetic, it's good to know the difference between that... and just being sympathetic. "Empathy drives connection where sympathy can disempower,” says licensed marriage and family therapist Barbara Cunningham. “Empathy is 'I'm so glad you told me that.' You respect your partner's adulthood without judgment.”

In this discussion article, Drs Harvey and Clark reflect on the importance of empathy and compassion. Parents are frequently devastated by the news of an irreversible hearing loss. Older pediatric patients wrestle not only with communication barriers but also with the challenges of fitting into an aural-oral-based social milieu.

 

And adult patients often find it difficult to confront the changed self-image that accompanies the realization that hearing loss is here to stay. Empathy and compassion are key to fostering patient growth beyond the assistance that technology can provide.

There is a lot of interest in empathy, both in science and the public domain. This results in many definitions and approaches to empathy. While this interest is great, we face the risk of not seeing the wood for the trees.

 

After 20 years of studying and developing empathy practice, we define five distinct, but connected, aspects of Integrative Empathy with resulting behaviours:

  • Bringing your undivided attention with self-empathy
  • Creating and maintaining connection with kinesthetic empathy
  • Fostering mutual understanding with reflective empathy
  • Diversifying perspectives with imaginative empathy  
  • Ensuring actionable outcomes with empathic creativity

Listening to and learning from patients
When we asked Dr. Conteh how clinicians can develop empathy, she said simply: “Listen.”

“You can never go wrong with listening,” she adds. “Empathy is listening, hearing the stories, reading the books, educating yourself. It’s something that everyone could work on when interacting with anyone who has different lived experiences, which we all do.”

Immersive experiences outside of the practice may help further contextualize those learnings, according to a paper from the American Psychological Association. Something as simple as consuming media featuring diverse characters can create a recognizable “backdrop” to understand the patient’s point of view. Other activities such as visiting diverse communities can also be helpful, the authors add.

You’re a highly empathic person. You fully and intently listen to others. You tend to focus on others’ emotions, often feeling them more so than your own. In fact, it’s like you feel someone else’s pain deep inside your bones.

It’s that visceral.

And you frequently find yourself utterly exhausted because tending to others comes more naturally to you than tending to yourself, according to Joy Malek, a marriage and family therapist who specializes in working with people who are intuitive, empathic, creative and highly sensitive.

Which leads to empathy. When we seek differing perspectives, we have to feel some compassion for those perspectives. We need to be able to put ourselves in their shoes. We need to believe their experiences even if they differ from ours. We need to know the world does not begin and end with our own perspective and experience. And we need to solve problems in ways that work for everyone, not just ourselves.

How to Defeat the Empathy Gap | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

To understand the empathy gap, consider the concept of cognitive biases. Cognitive biases refer to a variety of unconscious mental errors that result from problems in memory, perception, attention, and other mistakes. They occur when our brain tries to simplify the complex world around us and can result in bad decisions. Cognitive biases such as the empathy gap can seriously harm our business relationships and efforts to motivate and engage employees.
