EmpathyIn the Spotlight: Empathy

"Empathy is a respectful understanding of what others are experiencing."
– Marshall Rosenberg, PhD

"I cannot say it enough. Most of us rarely feel truly heard and understood. Empathy, the simple act of hearing someone and focusing your attention on them, can be incredibly healing. Try to listen for the feelings and needs behind someone’s words. This isn’t always easy, but the results are remarkable."
– Mary Mackenzie

"With empathy we don't direct, we follow. Don't just do something, be there."
– Marshall Rosenberg, PhD 

During September, Empathy Hacking: The Art and Science of Empathy Guessing  with Dian Killian is freely available for all to listen to and enjoy. See just below.
