Ways Of Developing Empathetic Skills.
Developing empathy skills is the act of being able to understand someone else’s situation, and how they feel. Empathy is an important skill and especially for leaders and below are several ways whereby one is able to develop it:
The first way is by asking other people how they feel about a certain situation and then when they are not around, try to compare their responses with your thoughts about the situation. The other one is by having an experience about people from different cultural background, thus being able to appreciate how people feel.
Asking question is also another way to help one develop empathy skills. For example, asking clients or colleagues. Another way is by having respectful conversations with people which involves, being open minded for different idea, listening without interrupting, apologizing and doing a proper research to get a better understanding of other peoples point of view.
