Motivating people to learn to listen with empathy is a huge challenge, a hurdle for everyone irrespective of culture, country, language, and organization. The glass is half full and we need each other.

Recent shifts in our economy, workplace, and health have exposed us all to a stiffer competitive environment where we constantly think of ourselves alone as we strive to survive.

Every form of encouragement requires empathy especially to those that are different from us. We can not take credit for the kind and generous words we speak or do while being unempathetic.

Empathy is best built upon mutual compassion. It’s often easier said than done, yet we all have empathy. We only lack the encouragement to display it.

Individuals must learn the ability to listen with empathy. Empathy is a prerequisite for moving any relationship or organization forward during good and challenging times. We need to learn to look beyond the traditional method of showing empathy ie empathy when it’s convenient.

Our ability to be humane with others is momentous to our lives, both privately and professionally. Demonstrating empathy in every aspect of our lives is a key part of emotional intelligence and leadership cogency. It also improves human relation, promotes moral values, and promote effective communication.

So, as we give thanks for the many things in our lives, let’s express genuine compassion to ourselves and to others that are different from us. Learning to listen with empathy is a healthy way to build strong and lasting relationships.

Practice listening with empathy and brighten the day of someone today. Listen attentively, hold the space with love, don’t judge, connect physically and emotionally, communicate love, It will do your heart a lot of good.
