Why compassion can help you succeed

with Eksteen de Waal

06 Oct 2021 11:00 am

When people do what makes them come alive, they deliver their best work. But the question is, how do you know what makes someone tick. How can you see and feel what others see and feel?

This is when you need empathy. Now empathy is not just being in someone else's shoes.
It's more than that. And today, Eksteen and I are going deeper into this subject.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What is "Exponentially Me" all about?
  • How does "doing what you love" fit in a corporate environment?
  • Why do leaders miss seeing other's emotions?
  • How do we appreciate other's preferences and working styles?
  • Importance of diversity.
  • What stops us from recognizing other's pain and emotions?
  • How does that impact communication?
  • Three levels of empathy.
  • How do you enhance your abilities on these three levels?
  • Does everyone have all three levels of empathy?
  • How do these abilities grow at different stages and change over time? 
  • The best way you can develop three levels of empathy.
