Winning with People >> The Power of Empathy
We have all experienced the truism that life doesn't always go quite as smoothly as we would like. And that sometimes the curveball's that life throws at us can be very, very stressful. When times get tough, our focus naturally turns inward, and it's not unusual for people during these periods to feel alone and besieged. It is at moments like these that we appreciate empathy the most. We don't necessarily want someone to solve our issues (although that would sometimes be nice), but it's nice to know that someone grasps the implications of our situation.
