The History of Empathy
January 8, 2:04 PM

The word was first used in German as “einfühlung” or in-feeling around the turn of the last century. It was used in the context of aesthetics, an area of philosophy. “It was about ‘feeling into’ things, like forms and shapes and art objects,” said Susan Lanzoni, a science and medicine historian based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and author of Empathy: A History.

January 7, 5:41 PM
As an executive coach and human-behavior professor, I have an inside view into how the great leaders and high-performers practice empathy

This is a retention strategy that doesn’t take long because the nervous system is emotionally reading others hundreds of times per second.Empathetic leaders avoid judgments about drama and instead identify the emotions within.
By shifting the focus from the attention-getting facts to the heart of the matter, employees internalize your authenticity, which evokes maturity and belonging. Belonging is crucial to motivation. People work harder when they feel belonging.
