Dearest Darling Readers,
“I know where you are coming from”
“I hear what you are saying”
“I understand your point of view”
“I understand your perspective”
…are filled with empathy.
Empathy shows respect. Empathy shows understanding. Empathy shows tolerance. Empathy shows team work.
People are drawn to empathy. It’s an attractive quality to have in building successful relationships. The truth is, empathy is also the No. 1 quality of a leader.
Empathy has three stages:
1) Empathy starts with thinking about other people’s circumstances,
2) It leads to understanding their perspectives, pains and frustrations,
3) It develops into knowing that those emotions are every bit as real as your own.
Empathy results in we developing perspective. It opens us up to bonding with others. It culminates in leadership. And yes, Empathy kills ego.
How good are you in empathy? How have you developed empathy? Have you experienced the joy of recieving empathy?
Would love to know your part of the story.
With love, prayers and exceptional wishes,
Imagine, when we wake up, we are given only what we had thanked for.
