I’ve talked about empathy on this blog quite a lot, and the idea is simple — it’s the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. I see it as “walking in their shoes”, and trying to see the world from their perspective.

When it comes to business, Simon Sinek has a very simple definition for empathy:

Empathy is being concerned about the human being, not just their output.
