Persuasion and empathy

Sometimes it’s more valuable (and human) to let persuasion take a back seat to empathy. Instead of trying to persuade someone of your point of view, first try sincere curiosity about how they see things.

As a bonus, seeking to understand before being understood increases the likelihood that we will be able to persuade anyways.

    (Unless that’s too much like persuasion over empathy?)

    I really enjoy your posts. Keep up the great work. Very Best, Laurel
