Wow, what a great conversation with some awesome participants from the audience who decided to join us.
Empathy is a powerful skill to foster in life. It can spill over to every other life domain as well; personal, professional, self care.
It is all too easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle, day-to-day forgetting to slow down and give our people some extra time.
On the other hand, we also touched the toxic side of empathy. It's easy to confuse empathy with tolerance. We can show empathy without tolerating the behavior we're seeing; it all comes down to how we handle it.
It can also lead to us being used as a door mat, which isn't what we want either.
Join us as we dig deeper into the dichotomy of empathy.
