The Importance Of Empathy In Business

In a recent survey of 150 CEOs, over 80 percent recognized empathy as key to success. Empathic workplaces tend to enjoy stronger collaboration, less stress and greater morale, and their employees bounce back more quickly from difficult experiences such as layoffs. As Cheril Clarke, founder of PhenomenalWriting.com and an expert in business communication, writes in a recent blog post “A shift to offering hope, discussing potential, talking about strength, and encouraging unity is what workers need more of right now. Succinct but muscular language such as “courage” accompanied by demonstrative visuals will go much further.”

Understanding The Link Between Corporate Communication and Social Justice

“The recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others have prompted overdue conversations about race, social justice, and diversity and inclusion. While much of the national outrage is regarding policing practices, there is a growing conversation in the business community that companies have an important role in addressing racial injustice. It’s what feels different about this moment – the widespread recognition that everyone, not just government, needs to do better. While leaning into social justice issues is hard and uncomfortable, it will make your company a stronger and more inclusive organization.”

This quote from the blog post Corporate Communications and Social Justice – What You Must Know to Avoid Blunders from PhenomenalWriting.com is pointing out that businesses can and should become involved in social justice issues…

The Power of Storytelling and Why It Must Be Done Right

The power of storytelling is not a revolutionary idea — people have been using storytelling to impart information and convey meaning since the dawn of humanity. But even though storytelling has a long history as a valuable communication technique, brands are recognizing that its potential as a marketing tool is magnified in the digital age. The reason is that there are so many more avenues for storytelling than there used to be. Where once we only had print and television ad formats to tell brand stories, we now have social media, digital video, brand websites, digital audio, and more…

Empathy In The Workplace Is Mission Critical To Your Success

Empathy is on the decline in our society. Research shows empathy declining in groups across society from health care workers to college students. One study revealed that college students’ levels of empathy dropped 40 percent in 10 years.

Technology has contributed significantly to these declines. People maintain primary contacts – immediate family and close friends – but your neighbors, the people at the café, the sort of secondary folks in your community, those are the people that we are not engaging with because we have our noses down in our phones…

Returning To Work Effectively Means Engaging Your Teamw

As millions across the U.S. prepare to return to work – and maybe, a level of normalcy – the phrase, “We’re all in this together,” heard constantly in the media, turns out to be both true and untrue. Yes, the pandemic is a global experience. But it’s also very much an individual experience. Your race, age, socioeconomic status, where you live and whether or not children are in the house all have a dramatic impact on how you’re responding to the pandemic. For many, aside from the isolation, life has changed little. But others…

Empathy In Business Builds Character And A True Team Spirit

In its simplest form, empathy is the ability to recognize emotions in others, and to understand other people’s perspectives on a situation. At its most developed, empathy enables you to use that insight to improve someone else’s mood and to support them through challenging situations.

Empathy is often confused with sympathy, but they are not the same thing. Sympathy is a feeling of concern for someone, and a sense that they could be happier. Unlike empathy, sympathy doesn’t involve shared perspectives or emotions…

Business Communication Is Changing: How To Really Listen and Not Just Hear

Business communication comes in all shapes and forms. From individual communication like emailing – all the way to delivering a keynote speech to thousands of people, there are a ton of different contexts. Your communication will change depending on the “how”, “why”, and “where” you are doing it. For example, when an entrepreneur is looking for funding, negotiating with suppliers, or trying to be a leader people can look up to, communication skills will play a major role in your success.

How Good Communication IS Good Business

Good communication is important in almost every part of life. It is especially important in business. In a hierarchical organization like most businesses are, messages can get muddled as they work their way down the chain of management. Information can be misinterpreted as it travels from boardroom to consumers. And a poorly communicated statement from a CEO at an investor’s meeting can cause a severely negative impact on the company.

Business communication can be improved with a little practice, however…

Despite Challenges, Women Are Becoming Successful Entrepreneurs At Warp Speed

The number of women-owned businesses are increasing every year. The trajectory for this includes significant growth; growth that is poised to continue indefinitely. However, the challenges faced by female entrepreneurs are significant. They often must deal with limited access to funding, balancing business and family life, and a lack of sufficient mentorship from the very start, (which is almost always resolved once they are up and running). While male entrepreneurs and female employees may have to deal with the same or similar issues, female entrepreneurs tend to take them on with an added degree of pressure…
