The Other’s Perspective
May 30, 2023
Empathy is one of the most valuable traits one can possess. It is the ability to see something from the other person’s perspective.
- If you are giving someone feedback, think about how it might feel to be the one receiving the same feedback.
- If you want to design a product to solve a problem, spend time in the customer’s position and visualize how it would work.
- If you find yourself talking behind someone’s back, pause and reflect on how you would feel if the other person were to turn the tables on you.
The more clearly you understand and appreciate the other’s viewpoint, the better you are at building trust and solving issues.
