Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person. It allows us to see perspectives, opportunities, and challenges from another person’s perspective so that we can make authentic connections with them. Healthy empathy creates openings that are safe for us and safe for the other person. Safety for us means not taking on the emotions of others to a point where it affects our ability to function. Safety for the other person means inviting sharing in a way that is not intrusive, disruptive, or unwelcome. In this conversation, we explore beliefs, mindsets, and practices that enable you to use the power of empathy to make a real positive impact.
