What is Empathy and Why Does It Matter So Much?

We don’t often talk about empathy explicitly as a leadership skill, or even a skill of influence, but it is foundational to both of those arenas, and as this speaker/author/advisor Jeremy Rifkin points out, it is foundational to who we are as human beings as well as the secret to solving most of our world problems of today.  This video is a graphic recording being drawn as he speaks, and it’s only 10 minutes, but he talks fast, so strap on your seatbelt and enjoy! Very powerful and profound…I’d love to hear your thoughts and reactions below!
