KEY TAKE AWAYS
We’d often get confused between empathy & kindness. Knowing the difference will allow us to see the problem in the eyes of the customer.
In this interview with Jacqui Pollock, we were able to navigate an understanding of what empathy is.
Empathy is an ability to stand in other people’s shoes, with the aim of understanding how they are feeling, how they are thinking, and what their perspective is.
She highlighted the importance of going into it with the conscious intent of being focused on the other person.
People are inclined to solve problems from their own point of view, and not from the customers.
Jacqui suggests practicing empathy by following the Four L’s of Human Connection:
1. To LOOK at yourself, the other person and the situation
2. To LISTEN by standing in someone else’s shoes to listen to understand vs. respond.
3. To LEAD with conscious awareness around your behavior, actions and things you say.
4. To LEARN through a continual cycle of noticing insights, experimenting and changing habits. It is also about harnessing those AHA moments.
