New Business Book Interviews: Organizing through Empathy: Introduction – empathy is the most important organizing mechanism

I’ll be posting a series of interviews with contributors to a new business book titled ‘Organizing through Empathy.’ seehttp://j.mp/11X7OBd ;
In this interview, editors Kathryn Pavlovich and Keiko Krahnke give a broad overview of the book and the individual chapters.

Organizing through Empathy. “This book challenges the existing paradigm of capitalism by providing scientific evidence and empirical data that empathy is the most important organizing mechanism…. 

Empathy dissolves the boundaries between self and others, and feelings of altruism towards others are activated. This process results in more compassionate and caring contexts, as well as helping others in times of suffering. This book provides evidence from neuroscience and quantum physics that it is empathy that connects humanity, and that this awareness can create a more just society.
