My books and courses teach empathy.
I used to think of empathy as an intangible, nebulous, even weird concept I couldn’t really understand.
Now I view it as a skill anyone can learn as well as they can learn to ride a bike or throw a baseball. Improving your empathy skills improves your ability to lead, all your relationships, and your moods. As a teacher, it’s incredible to see people develop the skill.
I don’t see many resources that treat empathy as a skill anyone can develop. Of those I find, they give vague advice on how to improve it. My book and courses teach it with clear instruction and follow-up. I tend to think it will change how we view empathy.
One of the things that motivates me is playing a role in increasing the overall empathy in the world, making it more accessible to everyone.
Imagine a world with more empathy. Imagine the Middle East with more empathy. It’s a different world—one I’d like to see. It’s a big reason I write and teach.
