RSA – The Six Habits of Highly Empathic People

Christopher,
Perhaps, you might find this interesting?

Drawing on his new book, ‘The Wonderbox: Curious Histories of How to Live’, cultural thinker Roman Krznaric reveals how empathy – the art of stepping into the shoes of another person and seeing the world from their perspective – can not only enrich your own life but also help create social change by helping us challenge prejudices and overcome social divides.

Drawing on everything from the empathy experiments of George Orwell to developments in industrial design, from the struggle against slavery in the eighteenth century to the Middle East crisis today, Roman explores six different ways we can expand our empathic potential.
