10 ways to build empathy
June 24, 2022
Empathy is our ability to sense other people’s emotions and understand how they may be feeling. It is about seeing things from someone else’s perspective and imagining ourselves in their position.
Practising empathy helps us to connect and relate well with other people in our lives. By being empathetic we can better “read” another person’s inner state and interpret it without blaming, giving advice, or attempting to fix the situation.
Like any other behavioural skill, empathy can be cultivated through intentional effort and practice.
