Connecting People to People

Increase Your Empathy IQ

To cognitively understand what someone is saying and see it from their point of view.
“Tell me your version of the story…” 

For us to connect, we need to see the person as a human being – someone who is valuable in their own right. To embrace their discomfort and our own.
“I didn’t see it like that… tell me more so I can understand…”

Acknowledging what you or someone may be feeling. We may need to get in touch with our emotions in order to truly connect with another person’s feelings.
“I sense you are feeling angry, is there anything I can do…”

To have someone feel like they are understood – that they are seen and heard.
“I don’t know what to say, but I’m really glad you told me.”

“Rarely can a response make something better. What makes something better is connection.”
