Design Thinking: Empathy: Both a Skill Set and a Mindset

Design Thinking: Empathy: Both a Skill Set and a Mindset | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

 A panel of experts, mostly outside the field of education, discussed how they use design thinking to approach problems. In this discussion, business owner and consultant Coonoor Behal, said something that became my most important take-away of the day:


Empathy isn’t simply one skill we can teach. Instead, empathy is a way of thinking resulting from proficiency with a collection of skills. In other words, to effectively teach empathy, we have to understand its components.


Empathy is a mindset resulting from proficiency with a skill set

3 Lessons Learned through Design Thinking During COVID

3 Lessons Learned through Design Thinking During COVID | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

The pandemic makes most things harder. Staying healthy is harder. Connecting with others is harder. Making ends meet is harder. I’m sure each of us could add to this list from our personal experiences. But in addition to these familiar challenges, 2020 has put something else further beyond reach as well, something we need deeply: empathy.


Empathy is the ability to understand and share what others are feeling. Perhaps ironically (or tragically), the extreme polarization and isolation we are experiencing in society makes empathy difficult when we need it the most. In the very moment that COVID has made empathy a matter of life or death, we’ve allowed our politics to close our ears to one another.

Council Post: Preventing Employee Burnout With Empathetic Leadership

Council Post: Preventing Employee Burnout With Empathetic Leadership | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
So, what does empathy look like in the workplace? It’s admittedly tough to define what is essentially a human trait or quality. From a psychological perspective, empathy centers on the ability to recognize and understand other people's thoughts and feelings — you know, walking a mile in each other’s shoes. Empathy helps us connect with others.

Brad Parscale Trumps former spinning bootpolisher claims Trump lost because he lacks empathy

Brad Parscale Trumps former spinning bootpolisher claims Trump lost because he lacks empathy https://youtu.be/Xld_IPuZeQY

 

Former Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said during his Fox News interview Tuesday night on “The Story” that he pushed for President Donald Trump to show more public empathy about the coronavirus pandemic, which Parscale believes would have resulted in a landslide win.

 

Parscale said, “One, two percent — suburban men and women we lost in the suburbs, Philly suburbs, Atlanta suburbs I think that goes to one thing, a decision on COVID to go for opening the economy first is public empathy. I think a young family with a young child who were scared to take them back to school wanted to see an empathetic president and an empathetic Republican Party. I think that and I said this multiple times, he chose a different path. I don’t think he was wrong with this, I love him, but we had a difference on this. I thought we should have public empathy.

 

I think people are scared. I walked around people and watched them walk around me, not like two years ago because I’m Brad Parscale but walk around me because I have a mask on, and they don’t want COVID. I can see waitresses standing a little farther from the table. People are scared. I think if he would have been publicly empathetic, he would have won by a landslide. He could have leaned into it instead of run away from it.”

Dear friends,

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the U.S. election being a Referendum on Empathy. This week's blog explores Empathy's Role in Reconciliation. My latest Youtube video is also devoted to Bridge-building through Empathy, featuring Ron McCLelland, a pastor and spiritual director. I hope you take a few minutes to consider the overarching message in both.

There’s much more to explore in this month’s newsletter. Enjoy!

Empathizing with our end-users allows us to understand the people we’re designing for, learn about them, and meet their physical and emotional needs. Today, we’ll take a look at what empathy is, its importance in the Design Thinking framework, and the most valuable sources of empathy. "

Lead with compassion - Listen with empathy

Lead with compassion - Listen with empathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

What is empathy?

When engaged with listening actively it is important to summarize, paraphrase, ask open ended questions and empathize. Most people do not listen effectively. A natural tendency is to provide solutions and share knowledge. It takes conscious thought to not provide solutions and share known information. A better approach when listening is to ask questions that lead the other party towards a solution found on their own part.  You have to calm the desire to share, be interesting, and demonstrate our own expertise.  

When you are with a friend and they have had something negative happen in their lives, you tend to be empathetic.

What Is Empathy?

What Is Empathy? | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

Empathy is the ability to recognize and understand what another person, animal, or even a fictional character is thinking or feeling. It is an attempt to identify with someone else's situation, perspectives, or experiences. Empathy is said to be about looking at things from someone else's point of view, rather than our own, and imagining ourselves in their place.

The word empathy has only been around for about 150 years. It is modeled on the German Einfühlung (from ein "in" + Fühlung "feeling"), which is a translation of Greek empatheia "passion, state of emotion." The concept comes from art  theory, which holds that appreciation of art depends on the viewer's ability to project their personality into the viewed object.

Empathy represents the foundation skill for all the social competencies important for work. -Daniel Goleman

 

7 ways to create an empathy advantage:

You might not have natural inclinations towards empathy, but you can practice empathy as long as you sincerely serve the best interest of others.

  1. Listen with interest.
  2. Remember people’s names.
  3. Learn about people and their families.
  4. Ask, “How can I help?”
  5. Say, “That sounds like a real challenge,” when people explain difficulties and obstacles.
  6. Affirm emotions. “I can see how you might feel that way.”

Brad Parscale, the former Trump campaign manager who was demoted in July, claimed in a Fox News interview on Tuesday night that President Trump would have handily won the election if he had expressed more empathy about the coronavirus pandemic.

“We lost suburban families,” Mr. Parscale said. “I think that goes to one thing: the decision on Covid to go for opening the economy versus public empathy.”

He added, “I think if he had been publicly empathetic, he would have won.”

Donald Trump lost the election because he failed to demonstrate "empathy" towards the public during the coronavirus pandemic, his former campaign manager Brad Parscale has said.

Speaking to Fox News on Tuesday, Parscale said that voters in suburban areas abandoned Trump because he prioritised re-opening the US economy instead of demonstrating empathy as he downplayed the severity of the virus.

"I thought we should have public empathy. I think people were scared," Parscale told Fox News on Tuesday.

Letters to the editor: President-elect Joe Biden’s gift to America is the gift of empathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

EDITOR: President-elect Joe Biden’s gift to America is the gift of empathy, one of the core elements of a democratic society.  Without this ability to take on the perspectives and feelings of others plus the ability to read, reason, and reflect, we lack the foundations of a democracy.  

 

As President,  Biden will help us restore the capacity to communicate and to feel with another, thus opening the possibilities of understanding who “the other” is and solving problems with them.  When we cannot comprehend the thoughts and feelings of someone different, we leave ourselves in ignorance and fear that leads to intolerance and possible violence.

The Light and Dark Side of Empathy

The Light and Dark Side of Empathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
We are asked regularly what we think about, and how we deal with, the ‘dark side of empathy’. An important question because empathy is not all about being good. It shouldn’t be confused with kindness or with sympathy.

Empathy is neutral. It can be used for good, or to hurt or manipulate. By understanding someone deeply, you could use that understanding to achieve many different outcomes — not all of them in the best interests of the other person you empathize with.

For this reason, a dose of empathy is as good as the motivations or intentions of the empathizer.

Motivational Interviewing

Accurate Empathy – Cognitive Phenomenon or a State of Being?
The core of MI is based on Carl Roger’s style and person-centered approach of reflective dialogue. “Reflective listening is a wonderfully useful skill, called accurate empathy by Rogers (1965) and ‘active listening’ by his student Thomas Gordon” (Gordon, 1970; Gordon and Edwards 1997). However, accurate empathy and active listening are two completely different contexts thereby producing different dynamics.

 

Carl Rogers was looking at accurate empathy as an internal process, of being in the flow with someone on an intuitive level.  His student, Gordon, is interpreting the meaning through a narrower focus, which reduces active listening to an external, strictly cognitive process. According to Rogers though, he describes his style as more of a “way of being” that promotes positive change.
