This week’s short video is a real treat. Brene Brown is certainly one of my favorite authors. And the topic of empathy is not only something we talk a lot about on this blog, but something I talk quite a bit about within my own team.
Here she summarizes the four qualities of the empathetic person:
- Perspective taking (taking another person’s perspective)
- Staying out of judgment
- Recognizing emotions in others
- Communicating that back to the other person
To truly make a difference in our teams and families, we must cultivate empathy as a skill and as it is stated “fuel connection”.
Have a great weekend.
all the best, kevin
