Would You Avoid Empathy?


Research has shown that when people are given the option to show empathy, they’ll avoid it.

For some reason, people are afraid.

Now, I guess empathy has gotten a bad rap, and people think that if they’re kind, somebody is going to ask them to do something for them.

So, maybe it’s time to dial down the suspicion and dial up the trust.

People want to work with humans.

They want to be with people who care about them and who people can be kind with.

If you’re afraid somebody is going to ask you to do something for them, don’t you think that comes across?

You come across as more suspicious than trusting and less than empathetic.

Create Trust.

Create Empathy.

Create Kindness.
