Monkey See, Monkey Do is SIYLI

When the boss isn’t happy, nobody’s happy. It’s an age-old adage that just might have some science behind it. Empathy is often misunderstood as a weakness by those who have not harnessed its power. Empathy isn’t the art of agreeing with everyone you encounter, but comprehending and respecting the feelings of others. By understanding the feelings of others, we can better communicate our needs and make decisions in a constructive manner. If we understand that an employee is feeling bored at work, challenging them with a new assignment or more responsibility might improve their performance across the board.

How do we develop our sense of empathy? It turns out our brain has done the heavy lifting for us.
