Conversations on Empathy
Heather Moon returns to the microphone to talk about empathy and how she uses it in her art, business life. We share how you can unlock your potential and connect deeper with your audience.
Welcome back friends, Welcome to KDOI Podcasting Kimo’s Den of Iniquity where we create more than we consume, I am your head instigator Timothy Kimo Brien. Sounds like an X-Men character or mutant superpower. This is essential for being able to convey what you see or experience and reproduce it for your audience in order for them to be able to comprehend. Also, you need it if you are going to work with others, it’s not necessarily ESP, but if you are close and paying close attention, you should be able to accurately guess what the other person is thinking. Let’s go to Merriam Webster and see what they say; the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner, the imaginative projection of a subjective state into an object so that the object appears to be infused with it. Our quotes come from Harper Lee “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it,” and Ernest Hemingway “When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen,” and lastly Aristotle, “To perceive is to suffer.”
Harper Lee was an American novelist widely known for To Kill a Mockingbird, published in 1960. Immediately successful, it won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize and has become a classic of modern American literature.
Ernest Hemingway was an American journalist, novelist, and short-story writer. His economical and understated style—which he termed the iceberg theory—had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his adventurous lifestyle and his public image brought him admiration from later generations.
Aristotle was an ancient Greek philosopher and scientist born in the city of Stagira, Chalkidiki, in the north of Classical Greece. Along with Plato, he is considered the “Father of Western Philosophy”
The first definition I think is very comprehensive as to what empathy means to me. We need to have an understanding and being aware to our partners whether they be business, romantic or just colleagues along the journey. I really enjoy Ernest’s quote the most, I agree most people never listen, they just wait for their turn to talk. Let’s get the conversation started and listen to each other.
