Get ready for the 5th ILA International Day of Listening
Empathy is not sympathy, nor is it feeling sorry for someone, or trying to make it better for the person. It is simply understanding what someone else is feeling.
If ever there was a time to “listen with empathy,” it is now.
Learn how to be a more empathic listener.
