While practicing and truly understanding empathy can prove to be a learning curve the good news is there’s more than one way to cultivate understanding. There is no right or wrong way and we can work together to choose the right path and create deeper understanding.
In the fifth episode of the Business of Empathy Michael unpacks this concept through explaining the seven fundamental empathic archetypes: the sage, the inquirer, the convener, the confidant, the seeker, the cultivator, and the alchemist.
Tune in and learn:
- How understanding the various empathic archetypes can help us identify areas we can improve in through greater self-awareness
- How to build a well rounded team by being aware of each others strengths and weaknesses
- How to depersonalize the miscommunication so that we can uncover the root causes causes of conversation distortion and better solve for them
