Empathy

Simply paying attention allows us to build an emotional connection. Lacking attention, empathy hasn't a chance. -Daniel Goleman

Very simple but true - I've come across people who dont appear to have any empathy - and you try and understand how that happens - or why - but I think this quote really does sum it up - pay attention - be genuinely interested - then an emotional attachment forms - empathy can't help but follow - you have no control over it ....

hi, there is a really interesting daniel goleman dialogue series in which he discusses the applications of social/emotional intelligence with leading thinkers from a variety of fields. i thought you might find it interesting, there are free samples available on the publisher's website www.morethansound.net
